This was one of my first embroidered tees and it's still my favorite. I should post an updated picture - I've stuck this tee in the wash some 20 times and it still looks lovely... :) I've even collected a few compliments on the street for this shirt, which always makes me smile. I used no more than 2-3 strands of DMC floss for all the stitching, since the shirt is rather thin and stretchy.

This was my very first embroidered t-shirt, done from an Aunt Martha's Kittens transfer. The material was pretty stretchy, and I worked with no interfacing, but I had no problems. Just took time to get used to the tension, and the way the stretchy fabric kind of "eats up" your stitches...
