Here's the first of several T-shirts I'm crafting for my best beloved's Christmas present.
I'm a bit hung up on cogs right now and I really like the soft edges this style of applique gives to the industrial shapes. The cogs are cut from an old shirt of mine I had ruined while trying to funky it up a bit Roll Eyes(I don't like to let anything go to waste).

Here is the finished shirt modeled by the embroidered portrait of the recipient.

The colours have gone a bit odd in these pictures, but I guess it is a bit of an odd combination anyway, a deep red wine coloured shirt with tomato soup coloured cogs.  Tongue
I like it... I hope he does!

I saw the quilt with cogs that you did, I liked that and this is lovely too! I think home-made t-shirts give you your own unique style and no one else will have one! Wish I were brave enough to try that! Oh and I like the colors together too!

Boldly going where others have probably been.

That is one cool shirt. I wouldn't mind having one.

I love it, I can really see my boyfriend wearing something like this as well, so if I get some time after Christmas I might just have a go Smiley
Did you make the t-shirt yourself as well?
