A freshly popped t-shirt!

Eileen's Machine Embroidery Blog

I’ve been on a t-shirt wearing kick—mainly because t-shirts are comfortable to wear in the summer.  But instead of mass market t-shirts that everyone is wearing, I’ve opted to embellish my own.

Years ago I wouldn’t have tried, because I was afraid of the effort to hoop and that the embroidery would turn out crooked.  But with the tools and technology available today, there’s no excuse not to try.  Bargain t-shirts can be found for as little as $4.00.  Plus, the benefits of continued practice include an increase in confidence and an improvement of skills.

Another fun bonus:  the shirts become conversation pieces.

In the last month, I’ve stitched 4 new t-shirts and every time I wear one of them I get compliments.

The most memorable was while ordering my drink at Starbucks.  The barista said, “I like your t-shirt.” My reply: “Thank you, I made it last night.”  He looked at me with awe and asked, “You just whipped that up last night?!”

His reaction made me smile, but I also realized I had transitioned into a more experienced, confident embroiderer.

Whether you realize it or not— you have developed and improved your embroidery skills with every stitch made on a garment, quilt block or even a scrap of fabric.  It’s easy to forget or dismiss this gradual progression but it should be celebrated and encouraged.

When I consider the work of our contributing writers and Editor, Eileen Roche, it’s hard not to assume projects get whipped up in no time.   But as I’ve learned, it’s a function of continued practice, experiments, a willingness to try new ideas and yes… to fail and learn from mistakes.

So, readers, grab a t-shirt and an embroidery design and start stitching!

About the featured t-shirt:

  • The Popcorn design is from Baby Kay’s Appliques.  You get multiple sizes with your purchase.
  • The website suggested inserting a monogram but I decided to add text:  “I’m here for the show” using embroidery software.
  • The only shirt I had available was this brown one— I didn’t think it would work but with a careful selection of bright colors, I think it looks wonderful.
  • To help guarantee success, I stitched the design on similar colored brown fabric to make sure the colors would pop sufficiently.

      I was standing in line waiting for my drink at Starbucks (I’m always at Starbucks!)– when I noticed a man wearing a long-sleeved, button down shirt with his monogram on the cuff. It looked so classy. It’s such a small detail but it elevates a shirt.

      I think your two boys will look very handsome in their shirts!

      You’ve got to try. If I can do it you can too. Last year it took me 2-3 hours to hoop and embroider a simple pillowcase. I over-analyzed it and worried I would mess up. A year later, I’m hooping t-shirts like it was second nature.

      If all else fails, you’ve stitched a night shirt!

    Normally I stay so busy making things for others, but this talk of t-shirts reminds of a whole stack of shirts I set aside to repair with applause/ embroidery. They still look nice except for some tiny pinholes just above the waistline, so I have to use a design that will cover that area & perhaps travel up towards the shoulder. I’m thinking a repeated design that gets smaller as it moves up (stars, bubbles, etc).

        I haven’t figured out why. Thought it might be my belt or button, but it’s above there… I’m short, so it could be the countertop edge standing or table when I sit/ sew/ assemble embroidery. Who knows!, but I’m not tossing them anymore! I probably have color imaginable, so designs can run the gamut.

    Love how your shirt turned out! I usually just make them for my son, but will have to do something fun for me! Maybe bubbles it a gun all machine.
