This gear shirt was a Christmas present for my little bro, an aspiring mechanical engineer who's about to graduate from college. I don't know if he knows anything about steampunk (the usual application of this design, I'd say), but he tinkers with enough stuff that it seemed to be his thing. For real. He had Mom's snowblower all ripped to pieces, trying to fix it. I changed the colors to cool bluish-grays and a bit of taupe.

Yay gears!

Also did a tee with a volt meter for Dad (way too square for the likes of Craftster). Did he NEED a volt meter shirt? I dunno. But when you find a design that randomly appropriate, sometimes you just gotta stitch it. Plus it's the whole "my daughter did this" thing. That's the theory I'm going with anyway.

I also purchased that design but have yet to stitch it out.  I'll get to it this week for my oldest son.  He's my techie in training and is difficult to get machine designs for him.  I need a playstation controller!  That would be a huge hit for him.  I know, I know - I am capable of digitizing it but I'm just too slow with it lol.

Yours looks good.  Looks like it will stitch out hopefully this one will stitch out better than the rollercoaster did for me Sad  I think that was operator error.  My machine does not like peel n stick stabilizer apparently!!

I am collecting quilts, afghans & blankets for those that lost their homes.  Pm me!
