so i started embroidering the bluebirds from the tatoo set on a t-shirt and rapidly started going mad because the damn t shirt kept stretching and puckering.  so my mom turned me on to a wonderful product called "tear away stabilizer" which is a pressed fabric, and rather looks like interface or a large dryer sheet, and anyway, you baste it to the back of the stretchy or slippery fabric and it uh, stabilizes the fabric while you work on it.  then when you are done you tear it away, and voila, your t-shirt is embroidered with minimal insanity.  so I had to share the news!  and I will post a pic of my shirt one of these days!
