Glad y'all enjoyed my handiwork!  I hear you, Bluecat, about the people you graduated with...that's why I decided to go on my own and get just anybody who I wanted (family, friends from other classes & towns, those friends' wee li'l sibs, etc).  Anybody I preferred to forget didn't make it on!  Wink  And it was a good way to learn how to embroider, since it really was a bunch of individual small projects.

PinkBalletShoes:  If you decide to try something like thismake sure your background color is light enough so the markered signatures show up & you can work with them, and also dark enough so it doesn't look too nastified from all the markering & handling.  That eliminated my preferred colors (black, dark purple, light gray, etc.), so I ended up with cheesy turquoise, but I wish I'd chosen something more "classic" like a dark gray.

Wow, someone in your class was named Sally.  I'm the only Sally I've ever met so far.

Great job on the embroidering, wow that must have been time consuming!

Wow. I think its incredible.  I had to show someone, so I told my dad to come in and he thought it was fantastic! What a great idea to preserve the shirt. People get their shirts signed, and then wear it a few times, then it looks like a rag, but yours is definitely guaranteed to not look like that.  it is absolutely great, and I commend you on how you stuck to it, and didnt give up....good job!
