Embroidery Pattern for Circus Unicycle Shirt

I recently finished a unicycle embroidered shirt. And some of you on the Facebook page requested a template. So here it is!

If you’ve never done embroidery before, here is a simple tutorial. It’s fast and fun!

Happy stitching!

(Note – I used almost all backstitch for this project. Also, the size of the design on my shirt was 9X12 inches, which a little larger than the printable.)

    1. Thanks. I’ve never used stabilizer, but I know it helps. If you don’t pull the stitches too tight though, it works out just fine. And yes, I used a hoop. It was smaller than the design, so I had to move it around a few times. When putting the tee shirt in the hoop, I pull the fabric so it’s flat and more or less tight, but not stretched. Hope that helps! Also, this is a much larger design that I’ve ever done. I mostly do little designs like owls etc.

    Thanks Joel! I will have to just give it a try. I have done plenty of embroidery on cotton fabrics (and have stitched them as patches onto t-shirts) but have never embroidered directly on the shirt. Going to try it for sure!

  2. This is one of the coolest t-shirt I have seen for a long time. Will probably make one or two for my kids and myself. I am new at embroidery and was reluctant to try a design on a sweat shirt but your post gave me confidence and inspiration, thanks a bunch :)
