So, for Christmas Presents for the little kids in the famil (like 18 cousins, but we only do things for the ones under ten) I embroidered Tee-shirts from Wal-mart. I love these tees and actually believe I'm getting good at this:) These are all free patterns from Andrea Zuills Blog (Thanks Andrea!!!!!!!!!)

The first is the Unicorn and Pegasus. This one is for a six year old little girl and she loves these fantastical creatures! I had don a tee with the unicorn on it before, but this was my first time with the pegasus.



The Second is The Penguin on a light pink tee. My first time with metallic floss (the fuzzies on the hat) and I wasn't too upset with it. i'll use it again. Plus the stem stitch on that hat, turned out great. i'm very pleased with that. This is for a two year old little girl.



The Third is the Birds from Andrea. This is my fave, and again, i think I'm getting kinda good. Lots of little French knots and the entire flower stem is done in stem stitch. I really love this one, and if it fit me, i would probably consider keeping it. This one is for a 10 year old little girl and is on a light blue tee.





The shiny parts of the tees is the water soluable stabilizer that will be washed away when i wash them....
I hope they are well received, because if I had a little girl, I would def be making tons of these for her!!!!
As always, please feel free to give suggestions!

You did a FANTASTIC job on those!  The patterns are cute, and your stitching is well-done.  I know I would love to receive these as gifts for my daughter, or even myself!  How was the stitching on t-shirts?  I've never had much luck...

I used the sulky water soluable stabilizer and it works pretty well with that, without it, it's pretty bad...

these are really cute!  is it difficult stitching through the stabilizer?  i ordered some t-shirt stabilizer and got it in the mail yesterday, so you've definitely inspired me to get started on something new!
