I did this unicorn from one of Andreas free patterns. They really are a lot of  fun to work with!
I put it on a dark pink/purple tee for a little girl (she turns 4 on november). I used mostly cotton pearl floss and I used water soluble solvey. Mostly back stith and stem stitch but there is also some split stitch and satin stitch...I think it turned out pretty good. Any suggestions on how I could make it better (since I still have a little time?)
The whole thing

I think it's adorable as is! But if you want to spice it up, you could sew on some sequins, stick on some crystals or beads.  I think she will love it no matter what you do! Smiley

I WIST I had all these super cool things!

See you in the clouds, sweet little Jackson.

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

Key-OOT! wish my cousin was still young, she would have Loved this design.

The bad news: There is no key to happiness.
The good news: It isn't locked.

Thanks guys! It's getting easier to do tees. Thank goodness!!!

I may add some beading, but I've never done that, so I'm waiting for the book to come back to the library so I can check it out!
