Holiday Shirts!

8 cousins = 8 hand embroidered holiday shirts! I asked all the parents what they thought their kids would like, and then went to work. I might have to make an R2-D2 for myself!

I put them in my bird boxes and made little circle collages for decoration.

    I just discovered your blog, and it is wonderful! :) I wonder, did you use any stabilizers for your embroidery? Or just pop it in a hoop and go?

    Thanks. No, I didn't use any stabilizers. I just put it in the hoop, but you have to not pull too hard on the thread, or it would get all bunchy and wrinkled.
