If I haven't mentioned any of that, consider it mentioned now.
Anyway, I started working on the Hippie Shirt this weekend. Since I can't use a transfer pen or pencil, I decided to wing the design (this made me sad, because I had a whole slew of Urban Threads motifs that I wanted to transfer and embroider). Here's how that went:
All of the featured work was done on a very windy, rainy, dreary afternoon as I watched The Hobbit (#1) and a bunch of favorite X-Files episodes. I stopped to take a picture after each step. This is about 5 hours of work, all done with ordinary 6-strand embroidery floss (2 strands at a time). Note that the above picture is a more accurate representation of the shirt color.
I'm going to embroider the front yokes, cuffs, collar, and down either side of the button bands.
Side Note: If I ever do this again (hint: probably), I'll get a light denim shirt. ALL of the transfer pens and pencils will show on that fabric
