I've been having some adventures in sunpainting that have necessitated finding a way to salvage a few shirts.  I've turned to using machine embroidery.  I wasn't too sure how it would work on t-shirt material.  I am happy to say that it worked out really well. 

This shirt is an overpainted experiment.  I added the Rocket Girl embroidery design from Urban Threads.  Now it is a pretty cool looking shirt.





Here is a close up of the design.  You can see a bit of the sunpainting to the left of her.  There are pictures of some of my other experiments on my blog.

Love it! Your sun painting totally rocks, and it's perfectly matched with the embroidery.

I think they work perfectly together - I never would have known it was overpainted if you hadn't said so!
