Hi Everyone,

I have been super lazy posting lately but have new projects. Here is a Hula Girl I made for my friends baby girl. I decided to mix threads together for the first time for the name on the back of the shirt. It turned out better than I thought.
I have to give credit where it is due I got the idea for the hair from roxy nova.




Back of Shirt:





Sorry for all the wrinkles. I am lazy.  Undecided This if my second post and my fourth project embroidering. If you could give me some pointers or hints on how to get better I would love that. Thanks for looking. Grin

The skirt is satin stitch but I kind of angled it in and tried to experiment with it.

Here is a close up of it. . .

This looks amazing!  I can't believe it's only your fourth project.  The stitch on the skirt is really cool.  I am terrified to try embroidering on anything that is t shirt material but you may have just inspired me!  Can't wait to see more projects from you!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Thanks, I had no idea what that stitch was. I am just starting to learn new stitches. That website is pretty cool too.

Thanks everyone for the great encouragement and comments.
