Leafy Embroidery

It’s finished! I completed the embroidery on my polo-to-tank-top shirt on Friday evening. Not too bad for an old men’s polo shirt, huh?

Haa, haaa! I like this picture of me scratching my head.
Chris meant it as a joke, but I think it’s one of the best shots he took. 🙂

I really don’t like having my picture taken. Blah!
This is probably the best “normal” shot  Chris took.

What do you think?

You can read more about the changes I did to the top here. I used BurdaStyle’s Sadie pattern.

Here’s a close-up on the stitching around the collar.

The spot on my neck is actually in the camera. We thought it was the lens, but it’s actually on the mirror or something else in the camera. Can’t seem to get rid of it.

I used a decorative stitch on my old Singer called “Sephora.” What do you think?

You can see where the embroidery hoop was. 🙂

The embroidery pattern comes from Jenny Hart of Sublime Stitching. I used her “Sublime Stitching: Hundreds of Hip Embroidery Patterns and How-to” book. I love how the embroidery thread matches the collar and sleeve thread!
