I loved the concept. So I got Lulu to draw herself a picture:
Then I set out to embroider. I needed to transfer the picture to fabric first and did so using a fabric pen that dissolves when wet. After transferring the picture I then embroidered the image. Lulu did help with some colour choices (she was very excited).
Once I finished the embroidery I ironed on some transfer paper, sorry I don't know the technical name for it, but you iron it onto your fabric and it makes it sticky, then you peel it off and iron your fabric onto the other piece of fabric.

Once it was fixed I used a zigzag stitch to sew around it, just to ensure it never peels off.
Like I said I'm a knock off kinda girl, but if you want something like this and are not up to the challenge yourself, A Little Bit Funky do have an etsy store where you can send your art work and she'll do it for you.
Now with so much buzz in the house, my little man Tom has presented me with his drawing! Off to buy a T-shirt, chow!
