The Big Daddy's birthday is this month and he wanted a new shirt. (he's a big guy and its hard to find cool shirts in his size)  A year or so ago I embroidered a sugar skull shirt for x-mas that he has worn out!  So for his b-day I made a new, more summer-y shirt.



I started with this old shirt of his, picked out the craptastic embroidery it came with.



Then having done that with tweezers, I put a hole through the shirt and had to use a seperate fabric to embroider on anyway. (Oh well!, there goes a month of my life! Cheesy)

I found some tiki Hula clip art in a dover tattoo book, drew them on with a light box and transfer pen. And this is the end result. Thanks for looking!

I had to give it to him two weeks early because he couldn't wait to wear it!  Isn't he dreamy!  LOL!
