11  Skating shirts! in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by jeanniepep on: March 08, 2007 11:26:53 AM
I love love LOVE the new roller derby designs!  Here's the first shirt that I made from that pattern set:

This one was actually from the Dia de los Muertos, but I replaced the feet with skates!  What can I say, I am obsessed.  I also cut the collar out because I'm going through some kind of Flashdance phase right now.

12  adding sleeves to tees for fall in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jeanniepep on: September 12, 2006 03:24:37 PM
I super duper love the Generation T book, ever since I read it I've been cleaning out Goodwill nearly every week and been slashing up shirts like mad (check out my Monkey Love quilt made from sleeves on the Sublime Stitching board)!

But, there's a problem - in Michigan it's too darn cold to wear t-shirts most of the year, I need something with sleeves.  So, this was my first attempt.  For some reason I thought the back of another shirt would provide enough material for both sleeves, but I was mistaken, so it wound up with some stretchy flowered polyester I had lying around the sewing room. 

In case you were wondering, the design on the front is a giant pencil pouring a watering can onto the heads of two children in a cloud.  That was from an actual shirt I got at Goodwill for the Lapeer County Writing Festival!  Surreal!  I stitched it onto a regular Old Navy shirt and added these funky sleeves.  In the photos I was dancing "Oh Yeah" by Yello, I couldn't help myself.

Any tips or thoughts for next time??  From you more experienced types?  Please??  Attaching the sleeves was a bit of a battle!

13  Monkey Love t-shirt quilt for kids! in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by jeanniepep on: September 07, 2006 04:18:24 PM
Hey guys!  I just joined up after following the link on the Sublime site, I didn't even know this existed - how cool!

Anyway, this is my first project of this type and I'm super excited at how it turned out.  I was making a t-shirt quilt for my guest room, and realized I could use the leftover sleeves to make smaller squares for a kid's quilt.  But, since plain squares are boring (especially white ones), I added some Monkey Love stitches to the most boring parts.  Now it's cute!  Thanks Jen!!
