So, this is my first post on this board and my first embroidered t-shirt. A brave new world of craft for me but I love it already Cheesy

I'm going to a roleplay convention this weeken and as my husband runs a Call of Cthulhu website I thought it would be appropriate to embroider a Cthulhu t-shirt. On to the pictures:

A close up of Cthulhu himself (even if he is ever so cute and I need to reiron the hoop marks away!)

The stitching of the web address:

(This looks slightly wonky but the t-shirt is u-shaped rather than straight on the bottom. Honest!)

And a rather poor shot showing the position of the embroidery on the t-shirt:

Thanks for looking  Grin

Absolutely Adorable! That's a great first effort. I'm sure your shirt will be a big hit at the con! Have fun.

Love it!

I'm in the process of rolling up a character for a CoC game. I'm a trombone player...with a Tommy gun. I'm thinking there has to be a mob connection there, but I have yet to come up with something.

Er, got off the subject a bit there. You know, I was looking at that last picture, and it might look neat with a circle embroidered around li'l Cthulhu.

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."
