I saw a shirt at Abercrombie that had machine embroidery on it, but it definately wasn't the Ramones seal.

I like my knockoff better, heheh. I just wish I would have used a regular tee instead of a ribbed tank because it stretches funny, but whatever.

I printed out the image I wanted, pinned it down, got my cat to walk in the bottom of the picture,

and sewed the outlines. Use a tight stitch (I was doing 30x inch). When you're done, peel all the paper off. Most fun part. Heehee.

I'm in the mood for a personal swap, anyone want a hat?

Your icon is a little freaky but I still dig your shirt. Good job!

It's just a regular metal foot, but I would leave the needle down with the foot up to turn it around corners and stuff. Most of the inside of the emblem is one continuous thread. It's a sixty year old machine if that makes any difference... hahah.
