I did this as a birthday gift for the grandson of a coworker. He has this exact "Green Cheek Conure" as a pet. Unfortunately the design was so thick, a little pucker was unavoidalbe, despite 2 layers of medium weight cutaway. The picture doesn't do him justice... Right adorable.

Embroidery work of birds is so pretty. I've collected and purchased several, but only done 2. Your project inspires me. Nice job.

This still looks very nice. I have tried using double mesh, and it has worked well. Not as heavy as cutaway, and then does not show through either.

Thank you. I have never used the mesh. I will have to pick some up and try that! :)

Still looks real nice. I will guess you did not test stitch the design before you did the shirt, just a tip next time test it will take some thead and a scrap but will save you some headache and you can always use it latter for another project as an applique or for quilting. *2U

I'm sure the pucker will not be noticed. I do better with iron on stabilizer. You might see how that works for you on your next T-shirt.
