Create your own Fanciful Butterflies Shirt

In this project, you add Fanciful Butterflies Embroidery Designs to a shirt made from The Big Shirt Pattern. This loose fitting front buttoning shirt is slightly longer in the back than in the front. You'll easily replicate the designs in the shirt, shown, if you choose the Fanciful Butterflies Thread Pack with 20 spools of solid rayon colors, 9 spools of variegated rayon, and 2 spools of metallic thread.

Helpful Notions:
Prewound bobbins: A time saver when embroidering
Fine White Marking Pen: Clearly marks on dark fabrics
Translucent Foundation Paper: Use to print templates of the designs; easy to see through
Sewer's Fix It Tape: Tape templates in place; doesn't leave a residue
Wonder Thread Guide: Use with metallic thread so it feeds off the spool correctly
