Have you tried embroidering on clothes? It's a lot of fun and a great way to personalize them. You can also embroider on tea towels
, pillows, just about anything.
Here's the secret to getting embroidery on to clothes easily. It's wash away stabilizer. This stabilizer from C&T
is my favorite, it's easy to wash out, I've found some others that don't wash out as easily.
Trace the embroidery pattern onto the stabilizer. Loosely cut around the design. Peel the backing off and place it on to the fabric.
On t-shirts, I like to use an embroidery hoop to help stabilize the fabric even more since it's stretchy.
Embroider just as you would on fabric, stitching through the stabilizer.
Once you're finished, follow the instructions on the package. Basically you soak the embroidered portion of the fabric and the stabilizer disappears.
Here's a closeup of the embroidery. This pattern is available through my Holiday Project series going on now. If it didn't come to your inbox, you can sign up here
and it will arrive next week along with a new project.

Have a great day,
