My daughter’s good friend, Evelyn, is having a birthday party this weekend which presents a fantastic opportunity to make something with my embroidery machine. But what to make at the last minute. I needed something quick and readily available in my sewing room.

Evelyn is a pretty sophisticated little chickadee. Her parents are British and she is lovely like a little English rose. So why not make her a modern applique rose t-shirt?

A few weeks ago I digitized a rose design and test stitched it out, (which was inspired by a book on traditional embroidery designs) and I actually turned out pretty cute.  I was ready to test it out on a t-shirt.  And I just so happened to have a girls t-shirt laying around and tons of scrap fabric.

One of the great things about this design is that stitches out very quickly. It makes a big impact with a very low thread count. And all the trimming of the appliqué fabric happens after the stitching is done, so there is no need to remove the hoop from the machine and place it back on throughout the process. For these reasons I love this design. Hopefully Evelyn will too!

The rose applique design is available on the Machine Embroidery Geek Etsy store.
