Let's Do ThisFirst I pencilled in a small outline of what I wanted to have embroidered on the shirt. I did capital letters to make it a bit easier as I'm a newbie at embroidery. Also I like the look of the capital letters.
Take a piece embroidery thread, maybe 60cm long, and thread it through the eye in your needle. Don't forget to knot the very end of your thread so that it doesn't go through.
Start embroidering from the inside, so stick your needle from the inside of the pocket out. Put the needle back in again at an appropriate distance apart. Or for however long you want each bit of thread to be. When your needle is again on the inside of your pocket, you want to poke it out closely to where your last bit of thread ended. So as not to leave too much of a gap.
Trial and error is fully okay! I had to unthread so much of H & E in Heck because I don't even know I must have tuned out while I was embroidering. If that happens, take your needle off the thread, and use the needle to pick out the stitches gently.
When you're done carefully tie the thread inside the pocket as close to the material as possible, so that there's not too much room for the thread to move and pull.
Rock that shirt like the cutie you are!
Super happy with how my tee turned out! And the project only took me about an hour tops. A lot less if you're actually not crap at embroidery.
If you were going to embroider your own shirt, what would you write?
