It's been cold, so I've been doing a crazy amount of embroidering. I usually don't love "cute" stuff, but I have a weakness for these kitten patterns I found recently:

I also stitched a free pattern from www.needlecrafter.c om that I love: (thanks blackheathen, for the correction!  Smiley)

The kitten on the blue t-shirt is adorable!  There's something about little pink tongues...

The girl is beatiful, love the flowers on her hat!

wow, that pattern looks so cute on your shirts! i was wondering if there is a trick for sewing on shirts, since the material ir stretchy? i have always wanted to spruce up some of my plain shirts, but timid about the whole weirdness of the fabric thing...

Do you use a stabilizer?
Your embroidery is beautiful! I really love how the designs came out too, but your stitches are so even and smooth.

Yes, it definitely takes a few stitches to get used to the tension - I use a hoop, and stretch as much as I can.

The last project, with the senorita, I applied a blank iron-on transfer to the inside of the shirt because I didn't have another stabilizer - it worked pretty well!  I love stitching on clothes because it just feels more fun to wear your projects. Smiley

Thanks for the compliments, everybody - I'm new here, and I'm really loving everyone's creative projects!

Great job on everything. I've downloaded some patterns from that site, too. It's one of my favorites. I really like the transfer idea. I bought some tear-away fabric but I've heard it can be a real pain if your stitches are small. Think I'll try the transfer idea. Thanks!
