Holiday Project #3 Embroidering on Clothes

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.
If you need some brushing up on your embroidery skills, here are some step by steps.
By the Way, I added new jewelry to the shop today as well. You can find that necklace above there.
Have a great day,

    Hi Jennifer! I just subscribed to your email list. Thanks for the three patterns to download. I was hoping one was the embroidery project, Holiday #3, but it wasn’t included. How can I get it? I love how it came out on the black T and would like to do this as an in-front-of-the-fireplace project this winter. I appreciate your help!
    Thanks,
    Diana

    Love this pattern, followed the link to ‘step by step’ and the indie says I don’t even have a valid e-mail address, I saw a cute Item I thought would be great for my granddouter but I can’t seem to follow the link…oh well so much for that…me and the computer just aren’t great friends and the web dosen’t like me either.
