Got the dang (err…cool) shirt done!!

T-rex tie dye

T-rex tie dye

It took someĀ figuring out that the embroidery I wanted to use wasn’t going to work….well, let me rephrase that in saying I’m not confident enough in my embroidery skills to risk ruining a perfectly cool shirt. I had ruined my own t-shirt in figuring this fact out, so I tried a few applique designs insteadĀ and had two complete set up’s cut out and ready to be fused down, but I just didn’t care for them. One of them was my son’s t-rex that he drew recently. It just wasn’t working for me, so I reverted to a t-rex he had sketched a short while back (that I had used for a needle felt applique). This one worked – again – so I went forward and stitched him down. Now I just need to get him into the mail!

I also was able to get some minor sewing done on two soakers, and hopefully can get them previewed. I have a bunch of longies to zip up, so I think that will be on tomorrow’s list to-do. Working at night is so hard, I get so tired too quickly!!

Check out the recent dino pic! ———>>> over there in Asher’s Art page!

He’s always drawing dino’s but this one he pinned on my corkboard for ME! I’m actually going to use it for an applique I am making to put on a t-shirt for a swap. I’ll post pics as soon as it’s done. I had originally wanted to use a dragon embroidery but for some reason the embroidery is wonky and I don’t want to ruin the t-shirt! (it’s a really cool fall color tie dye!)
