I’ve been debating for quite some time as to if I should get Urban Threads Monster Factory design pack for quite some time – even at 25% off it’s still hard to part with $20+ when you’re really not sure that you’re going to use them very often (although I have tons of ideas). So instead, I decided to buy a few individual designs that I could play with and see how much I wind up using them after all. For my first project I combined ‘happy eyes’ with “mouth with tongue” to make this shirt…. for an added, night-time bonus I used glow-in-the-dark thread for the eyes.
One thing I can say about embellishing children’s clothing: Hooping them is not fun. In fact, this particular one, because of it’s length, was a real booger to work around…. I’m almost thinking it’s easier to embroider fabric first then just stitch up a shirt from scratch! What makes it all worth it? A kid who loves his new ‘silly’ shirt. I’m thinking that I might make a matching plush monster for him in the very near future!
