WHAT YOU’LL NEED

Photo 2 - What You Need

A plain white Bonds tee, like this one

Red embroidery thread

Embroidery needle

Baseball (for getting in the zone!)

STEP 1

Photo 3 - Seperate the Cotton

All embroidery cotton is made up of 6 strands you’ll only need three for this as 6 is a bit thick to deal with. Separate in half, then thread your needle and knot.

STEP 2

Photo 4 - Begin Sewing

Push your needle through the tee at the sleeve seam and put the needle back through at 45 degree angle. Pull through and place your needle back through the seam line ready for the next stitch.

STEP 3

Photo 5 - Continue Stitching

Continue stitching all the way around until you return to the same spot

MEET KATE!

Our new craft blogger Kate loves to spend many hours creating exciting things while dreaming about sequins and sparkle. It all evolved from dancing like crazy and working in costume for the last decade, so all of her creations have at least a pinch of the theatrics and pizzazz. She is currently seeking the perfect balance of practicality and ridiculousness, which always create fun and interesting results!
