my friend is obsessed with x-men.  we were watching the movies the other day and he noticed the "xavier's school" hoodies that Logan was wearing in a scene and proclaimed "if they made those, I'd have four of them".  Well, my friends have nicknamed me Martha for a reason, so I went to work.

First I stenciled the x-men logo on the front and then a larger verison on the back, but it wasn't popping as much as I wanted.  So I went an embroidered the edges.  I just did a simple backstitch because I didn't want it to be too much.

the front

the back
"Xavier's School For Gifted Youngsters"

the color of the hoodie is closer to the first picture.

thanks for looking!

Heh, cool. I'm looking at the front page and I see the newest posts pictures and I say, "Hey, that looks like the X-Men Logo..." Sure enough, it is! Hooray!  Cheesy

Nice work!

I have a box full of X-Men and New Mutant comics that says, "You must make one of these!"  Grin  Awesome job and a lucky friend!
