My Cheeky Devil

I always thought my first embroidery project would be for Mollie. And I will admit that earlier in the day before I made this shirt, I did a test stitch out of Mollie's choice which was one of Nic's (aka Luzia Pimpinella) deer. It was an experiment to test out embroidering on knits.

So after the deer, I was feeling like I wanted to do something else. And somehow the inspiration hit to make something for Will. Will picked the embroidery. "Pirate one!!!" And I did the rest.

Pattern: Ottobre Design, 01/08, #27, "chimpanzee" shirt
Fabric: Azure stella knit and Hilco campan knit
Embroidery: Little Devil by Jolijou

If anyone has some good tips for embroidering cotton/spandex knits, please let me know since that is what I use most often for t-shirts.
