After joining the Dr. Who Swap,I'm still feeding my Dr. Who addiction so I decided to make a shirt for a friend. My embroidery technique still has a way to go, but over all, I'm happy with it. I plan on surprising him with it as a late Christmas gift. Hope he likes it.

The stitching is a bit wonky because not being a regular embroiderer, I don't have any transfer paper.What I did is print on freezer paper and I embroidered over that. When it's time to remove the paper, the stitches were left a little looser than I wanted.

I got the dalek pic here :http://s281.photobucket.com/albums/kk238/okumarts/?action=view&current=dalek.jpg
and K9 here: http://jinkies36.deviantart.com/
Thanks for looking! Grin

I love this so much. I might have to transfer my embroidery skills to shirts instead of just make-up bags.

I love this! I think you did a wonderful job - stitching onto t-shirts is hard to do.
And thanks for the links!

This is Extraordinary!  I've stitched on t-shirts with freezer paper before, and I had a hard time, especially with those tiny stitches.  You should be commended for the great work, and, of course, the excellent choice of subject!

I've been trying to make one for myself since December!lol I keep getting distracted with other crafting( I'm doing Round 5 of the Dr. Who swap and just joined the Zombie swap). Hopefully I'll finish the shirt soon. I need to do more crafting for myself. I seem to give everything I make away  Cheesy
