Here are some photos of a western shirt I recently completed. My friend William collects antique typewriters (as do I) and he commisioned me to make him a shirt featuring an Underwood typewriter from the 50's and typewriter keys. I designed the shirt and did all of the embroidery on it. The yoke becomes the pocket flap (as seen in the third photo). This was a fairly difficult challenge in the designing of the shirt. The typewriter keys on the yoke of the shirt have William's initials to give it a more personalized touch. He was really happy with the shirt.

incredibly and amazing cool.
i should think that he would look much happier about his shirt...but maybe all of his emotion is contained...inside the shirt.

That is so cool!  Did you do the embroidery by hand?  Do you have a close up picture of the typewriter?  Sorry for all of the questions.  I love it!

I posted a close up photo of the typewriter in the "Completed Projects" section of the topic "Embroidery". I did all of the embroidery by hand.

 Roll Eyes That is some mighty impressive embroidery!  I've got to go check out the close-up pic.  I really like the shirt too.  The zigzag design for the front pockets is really neat.
