I stitched up this Urban Threads design for one of my sis-in-laws, who loves to skate and is trying to get a roller derby team started up here. I crayon-tinted and then embroidered. The stripes in her shorts are actually pink, although they look white in the pics (the sunshine washed out the colors a bit in the photos) -- the kneepads and legwarmers are black and pink, not black and white as they appear in the pics. The skate wheels and laces are stitched with fluorescent floss, so they glow in the dark  Wink.
