Commission embroidery

Embroidered tshirt plan

Charlene asked me to embroider an image of the Eiffel Tower on a t-shirt to be a Christmas gift for her friend Jenn--who LOVES Paris. Now I have never been to Paris, but I also don't think I have ever really looked closely at the Eiffel Tower before. So my first step was a little internet research.

Chalk sketch

A few useful images later, and I could begin laying out my sketch in tailor's chalk.

Embroidered tshirt

And several hundred tiny stitches later, a shirt was born. (Thank you, Robb, for being my model!)
