If you decide to embroider this design on a knitted T-shirt, you will need:

  • T-shirt
  • Machine Embroidery Design Napoleonic bee
  • Medium-weight cut-away stabilizer
  • Air-erase pen or chalk
  • Fabric glue stick (we recommend using Gunold KK100)

First you need to wash your T-shirt before embroidering. Otherwise, there is a possibility that it will just shrink or stain. To correctly select the place of the design, print out the information file that is in the archive. Place it on the fabric where the embroidery will be and mark its center and two axes.

*** Traditionally, embroidery on T-shirt is placed 3 centimeters below the throat, behind or in front.

Then turn inside out the T-shirt. Spray the glue of temporary fixation onto the cut-away stabilizer web and glue it to the T-shirt. We do not recommend using a tear-away stabilizer for T-shirts, as it can lead to shrinkage, wrinkling and even missing stitches.

Turn the T-shirt back. Put the T-shirt in the embroidery frame so that the marked center line is in the middle, and the axes coincide with the marks on the hoops.

Roll the rest of the fabric of the T-shirt so that it does not fall under the needle. To do this, you can use special clamps.

Set the embroidery frame in the machine so that the needle is in the marked center of the embroidery. Embroider the design.

After the end of the embroidery, cut off excess stabilizer issues, retreating 1-2 cm from the embroidery itself.

A unique and original T-shirt with unique queen bee machine embroidery design is ready.
