Really looks great.. Congratulation on the 'Save' . Know your Mom gave you a very big hug.
Great job hugs
Great job, it's not easy hooping so close to pockets either! Love Chris
Great placement of those butterflies! She is going to love wearing it, especially because you made it for her. How did you get the shirt hooped to do the stitching on the curve of the shoulder and pocket?
Oooh! Good question! I used a big multi-position hoop, but even if you used a small hoop, you just have lay the embroidered area out flat and pin back the armpit, pocket and other areas that are in the way. I used a lot of clips and pins. just be sure that the flat area isn't pulled/stretched otherwise your shirt puckers around the design once completed. I will take pictures next time I have a tricky hooping. Sorry I didn't think of that while I was working on the shirt.
Great idea! Beautiful job!
What a great save. You turned it into a very nice shirt.
What a nice save! I stitched this butterfly today too, on some ITH bags. It always stitches so nicely. I bet mom feels like she has a new shirt. Great idea and job hooping.
It is a really nice, big butterfly that stitches out easily, quickly and also looks great with variegated thread. Love your bags too!
Great save and far prettier than she could buy.
Turned out really well. Looks great
Looking good and another shirt saved from the discard pile.
I do that a lot......I have one shirt that I just keep adding butterflies to to cover coffee drips!
You make me laugh. One of my daughters little dog waits till I am done eating and then comes, jumps on my chest and cleans up everything I may have dropped.
My dog does that too...I get vacuumed and sometimes my dog even washes the shirt too. He tells me where the next butterfly needs to go.
