Want to embroider on a dark t-shirt. Help please!

Licorice1977June 18, 2012


I'm new to this forum, so hello:) Anyway, I'm thinking of making this cool dinosaur t-shirt for my niece's birthday (it's in a month!) It wouldn't be a big problem, but I can't seem to figure out how to get the dinosaur image onto a little black t-shirt for me to embroider over. It seems that everything I've done so far has been on light colored material and I've just never tried this before. I can't draw the dinosaur freehand. What should I do? It sounds like a dumb question, but I can't figure it out.

Are you hand embroidering or machine?

I'm doing it by hand. I think I found something. Some tracing paper that I used to transfer my image in a light color (yellow) on the black t-shirt. The trouble with it is that it's rubbing off where my hands touch the shirt. I've started with the dinosaur and the poor thing has already lost two legs before I got to embroider them. Maybe I should re-trace them. I just know it won't look right!
