Sew the “Rudy” and “Snowman” shirts
If you've never sewn children's clothes, this shirt is a good start. It’s a simple model that is quickly set up. The loose fit is also forgiving of small mistakes, and you can always go bigger by adding ruffles, sequins, or printed fabrics. It's so fun to add your own playful touch!
For the “Rudy” shirt, we added a red pompom nose and a bow. Now our happy little one has some cute 3D elements to play with! When embroidering on knitted fabrics, be sure to stabilize your fabric. If you need some tips, check out Kat Walters' article “Machine Applique and Sewing Baby Bibs.” This will surely answer some of your questions and perhaps give you an idea for a Christmas gift.

- A zip file with the embroidery designs.
Please note that clicking the download button will automatically download the zip file to your computer. You will need to unzip it to access the PDF pattern or embroidery designs.
