This was done on my brand new Brother SE400. I'm completely new to machine embroidery and felt a real sense of accomplishment! So much to learn...especially about these stabilizers. I'm getting my shipment of tear away, wash away, and temporary spray on Tuesday. Then, I will be lurking here continuously looking for tips and ideas.

Great Job.  I have posted items that I have embroidered here as well.  Also, You might be interested in a swap that I planning on organzing in late March called Hand Embroiders vs Machine Embroiders.  Here is the http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=368897.10 Hand Embroiders vs Machine Embroiders Swap

I came to purchase my machine when a co-worker at the Viking Sewing Gallery persuaded me to buy my Husqvarna Viking 950E.  Which I can not live without.  I have a lower end Viking as well which was my 1st sewing machine that I bought myself.  I say all this to let you know that you have made a wise decision and investment in your machine.  HAPPY EMBROIDERING AND SEWING!!!

Your butterfly turned out well. 

That was the first pattern that I ever used, too.  One of the most-used patterns that came on my Babylock.

Thanks everyone for those encouraging comments! I picked the pattern because it said there would be no color change. Now that I've learned how to easily change colors throughout......I think I STILL would have pictured it for my first machine embroidery project.

This is the first pattern I used on my se400 too! I love the way it looks in white on the dark background.  I did it in purple on a yellow background.
