Bow T-Shirt for Mom

I embroidered this t-shirt for my Mom last night.  This design is from a very old Amazing Designs Beadwork collection.    Because it is a light-weight design, I hooped a piece of Wet and Stick stabilizer and positioned the shirt onto the stabilizer.  When I use a Wet and Stick type of stabilizer, I always do an outline stitch around my design to help ensure the fabric/garment does not shift during embroidery.  The bows are stitched with varigated thread from Superior Threads.  In addition to the Wet and Stick, I slid two pieces of light-weight tear away under the hoop before beginning to embroider.
