I got this embroidery pattern from my Mother-in-law. It was one of those Aunt Martha's Patterns hot iron transfers for floursack dishtowels.

I took one look at the chicken playing a guitar and HAD to make it on a shirt.  It makes me very happy to wear it.  Puts a big smile on my face every time.  Grin

I put it down towards the bottom and offset it a little to the left.  If you were to look at it straight on....the little tiny chick at the bottom is just over my belly button.



This little chick on the back on my right shoulder.  I would've gotten a picture with me wearing it so you could see where it sits....but have you ever tried taking a picture of the backs of your own shoulders?  Roll Eyes  I took it off and laid it on the back of the chair instead. But you can see where it lands in relationship to the collar.

I hope you like it!

I love this.  He reminds me of the Roger Miller rooster from the old Robin Hood cartoon.

I really like it with the black background.  I haven't ventured out to embroidering clothing yet, but I'm warming up to it as I see awesome projects like this.  The chick on the shoulder is a nice touch.
