Not perfect but done and a happy girl. Last one for a while too. :)
So I traded in creativity for my girl's fav kitty.
plethera of HK coloring pages to pick from as my template. Print and flip over to trace a reverse image. Note that when tracing parts like above, I make my piece bigger so it can be layered underneath.
Iron on your wonder under tracings.
Use your picture to help layer and assemble Kitty.
done plenty before. Anyways, unlike using simple straight stitches, if you satin stitch on tshirts you MUST use a stabilizer on the back. I prefer stitch and rip. You will cut a piece to cover your area (I did the bottom area first then cut a separate piece for the head). Attach to the under side of the tshirt.
This is what you'll have on the back. Rip it off when stitching is done.
Now hand embroider on the face (see bottom pic). I used a water soluble pen to draw on her eyes and nose. Then used a satin embroidery stitch to fill them in.
