I haven't embroidered anything at all in like for evAr!  And apparently my  brain has deleted a lot of info pertaining to such activities...yes i forgot how how to do a back stitch.  Shocked So anywhoo I decided my BF needed some cool game tees for the upcoming festivus season (and plus money is a bit skint right now)! So anyone who has played Portal will recognize these the warning (?) signs
that are in the entrance to each "test" area.   My first time embroidering on tee's as well....better going than I thought it would be. Enough rambling

Going from left to right:


 I had to reprint and actually glue the pics of the cubes onto the shirt 'coz where it was so small it got smudged so much I couldn't make it out!

Phew...I think I am going to redo the outline stitches as I know they're a bit wonky, but it's a bit hard to stitch with a brace on your arm  Tongue

Thanks for looking !!

that's so nifty! I like that that lines aren't all perfectly straight and such.. it really adds to it (imho)

I'd never have the patience to stitch that all by hand... but now i wanna try!

Wow!  Fantastic idea!  My Hubby would flip for that!

And, as far as the stitches not being perfectly straight:  How else would anyone know that it's home-made??? Wink

Great idea! Crooked lines make me crazy on my own pieces, but I keep telling myself that the beauty of handmade is that it's not perfect but instead has personality and interest. It doesn't bother me at all when I look at other people's work, so I try not to be so hard on myself. Nice work!

I really like this. Can't say as I truly understand it, having never played Portal, but it is a job well done. Nice one!
