Reverse heart applique.T-shirt looks gray but is black. I wanted to try this technique. Only took a few minutes and at first I hooped my t-shirt but on their instruction sheet it said to 'float' it so I did and pinned to my fabric and stabilizer that was hooped. I would like to try more of this technique but have to find some free. They do have a cancer ribbon and since I am post breast cancer and I am sure I have another group of t-shirts ready for something creative I can have another go at it. I enjoyed this thoroughly.

Interreesting technique. I think I have seen it for a hot pad but not done on the embroidery machine. Your project turned out great

Now this is an interesting and unique techinque that I've never seen before in ME. While I'm familiar with reverse applique, this looks a little different. Would you like to share a little more about how you created this look?

The instructions were to hoop your light cutaway, spray baste but I did not your pretty fabric right side up and stick sprayed wrong side to stabilizer. Then float your t-shirt on top and I pinned it away from stitching line to hold all together. It stitched it out in a matter of minutes then sit a slash carefully the t-shirt between stitching lines and not cut into pretty fabric inside. Trim all the excess inside the shirt right up to stitching outlines.

wowwwwwwwww another great project:):)xxx

Looks good. I remember doing something similar. (pre embroidery machine) You put a piece of material inside the T, right side facing the T. Sewed whatever shape, which also had the horizontal stitches. Then slashed the T itself, to allow the material to be seen, and the T rippled up over time.

I remember too, never thought of digitising it, although that would be super easy. I have some children's Tees and might just try a bow.
