We loved the embroidered jeans so much we decided that words belonged everywhere – not just on your bum. We decided that we would do it on some summer tees, and loved how they turned out. Naturally we put phrases on them that reflect our current summery state of mind, but you can put whatever you want on them. That’s the beauty.

One important pointer for taking the embroidery from denim to tees – you might find that the fabric is too light, causing it to ripple and move around too much when you’re sewing. One way around this is to iron some interfacing on the inside of the tee before you do it, just where the words will sit. This will make sure the needle has a clean surface to punch through. You can trim around it on the underside once you’re done for a clean finish. Here’s to summer!
