i wasn't sure whether i should put this in general or reconstructed, or even needlework, so feel free to move it.

well, i made this for a swap i was in, and my partner has received, although i didn't hear from her, so hopefully she liked it Undecided

i just bought i plain white tshirt, already had the pink fabric, and felt.  as far as i am aware, the japanese charcters say strawberry, although the online translator i used may have not been accurate. oh well.  all up it took me probably over 4 hours, as it is all stitched by hand, and i work very slowly.  the idea was my own original concept. comments/criticism appreciated, as this is my first attempt at non-knitted clothing. let me know what you think!

on me (it was a few sizes to big for me - but it gives you an idea)

aww thanks guys! *blushes* Embarrassed

i believe that the felt was synthetic (mainly because it cost 60c per piece lol)

also, yay for the accuracy of the online translator.  i wanted to make it say "super sweet strawberry" but given the time constraints of the swap, it would have been a bit ambitious.
