I LOVE Jenny's patterns! I got the bib kit last week, and made a veggie-decorated bib for my nephew. I hand-wrote the "I love veggies" part, and "veggies" and the carrot top are a dark green, though it doesn't look like that in the photo.

Then I used the sparrows in the "tattoo" set to cover a stain on the (my) left side of this button-down shirt.

I drew out the flower on this raw silk tee and stitched it on:


I'm looking around my house for more things to embroider! I'm going embroidery crazy!

Thanks! I made it a few years ago when I was on a wire-wrap kick. Some of the beads I had, some I bought to fill in. The wire is 18 gauge aluminum that I bought at the hardware store. It's thick, cheap, and easy to work with. It doesn't tarnish, and I like the particular silvery tone of it better than silver-toned beading wire. I think that gauge looks good with bigger beads.

So nifty...I found some neat pinup girl patterns at needlecrafter.com that I want to use.  Anyone know of somewhere that sells cheap, fitted tanks and tops that haven't been worn already?

Nordstrom actually has some pretty reasonable basic ones in their 'BP' department.  If you have an actual store nearby they usually have zillions of colors
here's a link to the online version

I got this t-shirt for $1 on clearance at K-Mart, it's more of a peacock blue than in the pictures. I used the lotus and mudra hand patterns from the Om Sweet Om set, and the little flame over the hands is from Chinatown.



I also got a red t-shirt that I embroidered on the snake from the Tatoo Your Towels set that I finished last night. I'm having so much fun with it!

I love the hands on the back of the neck!  It's like a more original (and less permanent!) version of the ubiquitous back of the neck tatoo.

Tres chic!

Thanks Melidomi! I have one more shirt to embroider, an orange one shaped like the blue one. I'm going to put paper lanterns on the front, and a fortune cookie on the back in the lower right side. Adds a little extra interest. :-)

Here's the snake shirt that I did on Tuesday:
