My grandson follows Hawthorn in the Australian Football League, so I thought I would try to embroider a Hawthorn logo on to some denim shorts for him for Christmas.
I found the club logo, copied and traced it on to Solvi. I don't much like working with this, but I have found it the best way to get an outline onto denim.
Once I had stitched around the outline, I removed the Solvi and filled in the rest.
I had originally intended to use chain stitch but decided I'd get a better effect and wear using stem stitch.
It progressed well. The logo is a great design - the lines are continuous and fluid and the two colour juxtaposition gives a great sense of dimension.
I am pleased with the effect and the impact of the stitching. Even the back looks as if it will stand the rigors of the treatment it is likely to get from an eight-year-old knee!
Fionn was well pleased with these on Christmas Day.
