Show-off. Just kidding; I don't have any embroidery equipment. Seriously, though, great job and love the embroidery.

Hi Mrs Moos. I used fusible "No-Show" Mesh (got it at my Viking dealer) that I hooped and then fused the fabric to it after I had the placement where I wanted. I fused it lightly under the design so that I was able to pull it up and trim the extra away. Nice alternative to temporary spray adhesive. I floated water soluable tearaway under the hoop for the center design since it was pretty dense. Also I laid a piece of iron away (the plastic looking stuff) on top so that the embroidery wouldn't sink into the fabric. If I do it again I'd switch that to a light weight water soluable since it was a PITA to get all the iron away off.

Great imagination and sewing on this top! If I may ask, what stabilizer did you use?

Beautiful t-shirt! I like the lowered neckline. The embroidery thread color is perfect and nice placement of the designs.

This is a beautiful top.

Great top! You did a great job with the embroidery. I love to see embroideries that don't look "cutesy" or over-the-top.

This looks very nice ... very stylish use of embroidery.

Thanks for the kind words. Beth, I have a Viking Designer SE LE that I just reviewed yesterday. It embroiders like a dream. Cressie, I couldn't agree with you more! I've been buying designs from them for years and have yet to have a problem. In fact, anymore I don't usually do a test sew I'm so confident about the design quality.
