Here's the first of several T-shirts I'm crafting for my best beloved's Christmas present.
I'm a bit hung up on cogs right now and I really like the soft edges this style of applique gives to the industrial shapes. The cogs are cut from an old shirt of mine I had ruined while trying to funky it up a bit
(I don't like to let anything go to waste).
Here is the finished shirt modeled by the embroidered portrait of the recipient.
The colours have gone a bit odd in these pictures, but I guess it is a bit of an odd combination anyway, a deep red wine coloured shirt with tomato soup coloured cogs.
I like it... I hope he does!
