Adorable three year old appliqué and embroidery design in 6 styles and sizes – the word three in cursive


I came up with this design to personalized a sweatshirt for a little horse-loving girl. Cool Western-style horse head surrounded by stars. There are two different versions of this design in this set – one without stars on the bottom so that the design can be personalized (as shown in the picture) and the other with stars all the way around the circle. Three different sizes are provided for each version of the design.


You don’t turn three every day. Celebrate the occasion with an appliqued or embroidered t-shirt with the word “three” in cursive perfect for the occasion.
