Canada Day Project 2019 #1

Here is the first of my 2 Canada day projects for this year. Today I had the opportunity to spend pretty much the whole day at my sewing machine which was awesome. Not only did I get a good start on a couple of projects but the basement is SO much cooler when the weather gets hot lol!

This is a T-shirt that I made for Chris. He is big into “Canadiana,” and skulls so this seemed like the perfect project to make for him and for me to play!

I found the pattern on Etsy. They have a great selection of machine embroidery patterns. I could literally spend the whole day just looking at them and adding them to my favourites!

This one I found here – https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/701696834/canadian-flag-skull-machine-embroidery?ref=yr_purchases – at a store called KHCraftsStudio.

I didn’t have any of the burgundy thread colour called for in the pattern so I ended up substituting a reddish brown colour. Not too bad I don’t think. I will say though that any mistakes are all me lol, not the pattern. (I ran out of bobbin thread once and had a tension issue another time 😦 )

    • I’ve been very pleasantly surprised at the number of cool skull patterns and other types that are suitable for teens, and those who like that sort of thing. When I first got my sewing/embroidery machine I thought it would be mainly flowers and that sort of decorations… I am so impressed with how wrong I was lol! 😊
