Work Work Work!

Here are some pictures of a few things I've done this week. 
First the AC tennis racket (found HERE) done to match the cute pants in the picture! 
Next, my friend wanted to do a shirt similar to the Kelly's Kids airplane tee so I came up with the below. The photo quality isn't that great on my airplane patch - it's really cute and the lime is brighter in person! The airplane came from SWAK. I use this airplane A LOT! I think I've done it 3 times in the past week. It does come with some stuff coming out the back which I delete.
Lastly, I did these name tees. Wilson is from EB ~ HERE. I did merge it all together and shrunk it down to 7" for my 5x7 hoop. Addison is from Applique Momma ~ HERE. Again, I had to shrink it to make it fit my 5x7 hoop. My mega hoop is TOO big for these tees.
My work tally is now at 35!! I have been rocking and rolling this week (with a little help from my friend ~ CAFFEINE). I leave Friday for a girls weekend so I may work another day or two this week, several days next week and will take the very long Labor Day weekend off! If I get all 35 done before then I will be very pleased. But, if I don't, it's no big deal! I'm amazed that I'm down to only 35 items, especially for this time of year. Several of the things I lack are corduroy and or Christmas items, so no biggie if those have to wait a couple of weeks. Back to work...

Comments: the shirts I did for the names are a Rabbit Skins 4 (wilson) and the Addison tee is like a small 5/6??). The ringer tee is the Kellys Kids design, so it's their tee. I was just showing how to do something similar. I will try to do a post on Sew What Pro and how I adjust the names to fit my 5x7 hoop!

What size shirts are those with the applique names on them? It seems when I use my 5x7 hoop on toddler shirts, it stretches the front of the shirt out. Any suggestions???
By the way, your site is a WONDERFUL help to me!!! Thank you so much for sharing your work!

I also I have a question... The largest hoop I have is 5x7 and I just cannot figure out how to get applique names to fit. So I am assuming you use Sew What Pro to shrink the size?

This may sound silly, but can you do a tutrial on HOW you hoop your tshirts. I have a 5x7 hoop that I only use...I use weekly...but I guess I haven't figured out how to hoop as well as you because it is a BEAR to think about doing! I try to avoid nice-sized items like this. ;)
