Bird on My Old Pink Shirt – Result

I am “tickled pink” (get it?) with how this turned out:

Bird on a Shirt - Result

This was almost entirely made of excess thread from the previous kit projects. If I had a do-over, I would have gone a little thicker on the orange thread. I only used two strands, both to keep the feet and beak delicate and to conserve my orange thread. I could have used 3 strands and it would have covered the tracing a little better. I also would have left off the star/astericks which appear on the drawing, but there was no going back after they were traced on.

I’m wearing it today. Way to bring new life to an old shirt!
