I decided to put this here instead of the embroidery thread...If a Mod wants to move it I understand...

I made this shirt for my 11 month old brother. I was nervous as it was my first try embroidering on t-shirt. I found some cheap t-shirts at the dollars store and the best part was they were cool looking but completely plain. So I set out to embroider something fun. I'm not into traditional baby boy stuff(puppies, bears, ducks...whatever). I wanted to make him something cool so I opened my Sublime Stitching book and found some patterns that went together and
Ta-Da...a Cool(non-babyish) t-shirt is made.

Heres what the whole t-shirt looks like

Closer up to the front of the shirt

Detail pic of the Rocket(not super awsome quality i know i'm sorry)

And a pic of the back

I think it turned out great for being a first. There will be more to come as there is also a almost 3 yaer old in the house who has to have everything the baby has and a cousin who is the only girl baby i have to make things for. the only thing that went wrong was when i accidentally burn the t-shirt while putting the pattern on  Embarrassed  iron was too hot oops! lesson learned though lol.
Action shot to follow tomorrow as I didnt get home from work(where i finished this tonight) until 10 and aparently i'm not allowed to wake up to make him pose for pictures... Grin

Excellent! Love the space theme. Great job with the embroidery!

Oh, and thanks for the lead on the plain tshirts -- most places only carry printed/embellished tees. I want to do my own embellishment, thank you very much!  Smiley

Beautiful embroidery. 

Wow.  I really want to get into embroidery.  I've only done a little bit. 

But I just ordered a copy of Doodle Stitching.  Hopefully it will get me going. 

Once again... this looks GREAT!
