Adorable Cheesy who doesn't love a girly skull on their black dress? I would have tried to make her eyes sparkle, and maybe the bow as well Tongue but this is a simple and nice design.

Hi, I'm getting ready to embroider on the back of my sons black t-shirt and I'm new at this and I don't even really know where to start.  I've never worked on black, let alone knit fabric.  Any suggestions would be great thanks!

I'm kinda new at this as well and this was my first black knit item. I drew the design with a white crayon so I knew where I was going, and that worked well for me. There is a material you can buy called stabilizer that helps keep the fabric stiff and not stretch as much but I always take the hard rout in life so... Just remember it's easy to cut the floss and start over, experiment, have fun, and I have no doubt it will be great. Good Luck!
