Thanks, Shroomama! I've been out in my studio all morning and just stopped for lunch... I'm "scary-hungry" as we call it around here Wink Your kind words make me want to get back out there!

The fact that you took a significant event in your life and turned it into a useful and appreciated gift for someone so significant in your life is pretty damn inspiring! 
I really appreciate the thoughtful way you put that. Thank you, MistressT.

I love the embroidery, especially for your hair and the bike details. 
Ya, I got a kick out of concentrating on the details like my V-Twin engine, the cut of the pipes, and the braided cables (kind of hard to see here). Thanks!

Drive carefully!!!
Thanks kahlan, "keep the rubber side down!"

My husband has been riding motorcycles for about 40 years. Last year I surprised him and learned how to ride myself. He was ecstatic Shocked He told me that he wanted to get a tee shirt printed with the sentiment expressed on the shirt below. (the B-word being the understood term among bikers for the person who rides on the back).

Well, I did him one better! My daughter took a few pictures of me on my bike and I blew them up on a photocopier. Then I drew over the copy with an iron-on transfer pencil (with a few enhancements) and transfered my design to muslin. After I finished embroidering I used Wonder Under and a zig-zag stitch to put it on to a nice black shirt. I gave it to him for Christmas and he absolutely loves it.

I had so much fun doing the embroidery. It had been years since I'd done any. What a wonderfully satisfying craft! Glad I have a place to share cuz I'm pretty darn proud of it Grin

This is adorable. You deserve a ton of credit for originality. The tie around the bottom gives it that little something extra! It works great. Congratulations Grin

Did you have an issue with raveling? If you ,mentioned that I didn't see it.
The 4 sweaters that I have are supposedly all natural cotton so there's no acrylic and no wool...

Hi Maxine,
I give a general answer to the raveling question on page 2. To your situation, and cotton knits specifically, I would suggest sewing a row of long straight machine stitches on either side of your cuts before or immediately after you cut. Cotton is the trickiest, but you'll still have some working time even if it thinks it wants to fall apart. Please send me a personal message when you post your coat just so I'm sure not to miss it. Can't wait to see it.
Thanks,
MB

So inspired! I love it. Very edgy how you skipped the eyelets when you laced it up.
I'll be bookmarking this to show to my students. Thanks!

Oooo! Please post it when you're done. It sounds wonderful. I just loved those shirts.
