Nathaly's T-shirts

As promised. Nathaly's t-shirts, one bright pink the other one black. Don't forget to click on the images for a larger version.

The black one was embroidered with Tropical glow and glow in the dark thread (DMC). It's an awful thread to use, but the effect is lovely. I wanted to achieve a childish kind of look, and it's so difficult to embroider with this thread that the insects and the flowers looks like done by a three year old lol The look I wanted :) Well, picture doesn't make justice to it. Thread is much brighter, fluorescent... The designs come from a template and added some lazy daisies.


The pink one was accented with crocheted flowers and yellow buttons, to add a whimsical touch I added a blue dragon fly (from my collection of shelly's buttons and more. The sleeves were blanket stitched and then added a shell border: five chain stitches on each space of the blanket stitch, then over those five stitches (sc, skip next ch, five dc on the next ch, skip next ch, sc), repeat all around. Thread used was Corrente Camila, color 3010N (multicolor) and Cléa (green). Design was my own.



Now let's wait until quality control (three year old Nathaly) says....

Thanks for your comments girls! Nathaly said that she liked them because they are "very pretty", then laughed when I suggested that she might keep them until she grows a bit more...
