Do you have a t-shirt you just wish you could spruce up, but don’t know how!?

Or may you have an old sweater that needs some new life!?

I love using embroidery to make a t-shirt or sweater come to life! Adding a little pop of color or some simple flowers can give any item of clothing some new life!

Anyone can embroider clothing! It may look intimidating and you may have a bunch of questions to help you get started! I’M HERE FOR YOU!!

One embroidered t-shirt I absolutely love is my “Pocket Full of Daisies” shirt! It started out as a plain grey pocket t-shirt and now it’s my favorite item in my closet!

Whenever i post a picture of embroidered clothing on my Instagram, I get SO MANY DMs. Messages range from “Wow! I love this shirt!” to “Wow! Tell me ALL your secrets! I want to make this too!”

This is why I created a PDF embroidery pattern that would allow others to create their very own “Pocket Full of Daisies” shirt.

This pattern teaches you EVERYTHING you need to know to create your own embroidered t-shirt! You will be able to create the “Pocket Full of Daisies” shirt, but you will also be able to use all my tips and tricks to help you embroider any piece of clothing. The pattern answers questions like:

  • Should I use a stabilizer?
  • How do i keep my shirt from puckering and stretching?
  • How do i transfer my pattern onto my shirt?
  • How do I secure the thread onto the back of the shirt?
  • Tips for working with stretchy fabric?
  • How do i wash my hand-embroidered clothing?

So yes, YOU CAN DO IT!! You can embroider your own clothing! Follow the instructions in this pattern and you will be able to embroider ANY t-shirt, sweater, etc!

Embroidered Daisies Pocket T-Shirt

I’ve always loved embroidering daisies. But getting to wear them on my shirt is just so exciting to me! What’s better than art you can wear??!

This daisy pocket t-shirt is just what I need in my wardrobe! It is perfect for basically all seasons of the year, but I am especially excited to wear it this Fall!

This hand-embroidered daisy pocket t-shirt has a relaxed, draped fit. It is available in sizes S, M, and L. If you are between sizes, you may consider sizing down as the shirts are loose and flowy.

The shirt color is Heather Stone (AKA grey) and the flowers are white daisies with yellow centers and green stems.

Made from super-soft viscose fabric, this light-and-airy flowy tee with a square-pocket detail is a versatile essential.

The material is 65% polyester, 35% viscose. Machine wash in warm water, inside out with like colors. Tumble dry on low, or lay flat to dry. Medium iron, if necessary.

It’s the perfect addition to your Fall wardrobe. Dress it up or dress it down, either way, go out in style!
