My Grandchildren – Embroidered Turtleneck


There are only 10 days until Christmas! Christmas is my favorite time of the year.Shirt It is a time of such joy in my family. Family get togethers, watching the children experience the fun of Christmas. And, this year, I have a new grandson which was the inspiration of for the shirt.

Masterworks III has a great text tool. I used 10 fonts and 11 colors for the lettering. Then, I used the heart in custom shapes to add the small hearts in the design.

I embroidered the design on my Janome 9900 so I my only limitation was the size of the hoop 6.7″ x 7.9″. It is the perfect size of the front of a turtleneck shirt.

The following are the fonts and the sizes that I used:

  • MWIII DesignNatee – Font: Compact; Height: 22 mm (rotated)
  • NICK – Font: Crafty; Height: 18 mm (vertical)
  • Becca – Font: Bookworm; Height 24 mm (rotated)
  • Teagan – Font: Lizzie, Height 16 mm
  • AMANDA – Font: Capital Key Block; Size 18 mm (vertical)
  • MACY – Font: Crafty; Size 20 mm
  • shannon – Font: Mansfield; Size 25 mm (rotated)
  • JEREMY – Font: HobbyHorse; Size 16 mm
  • Kaitlyne – Font: LittleLordFonteroy; Size 22 mm
  • DREW – Font: Ribbon; Size 24 mm (vertical)
  • My Gandchildren – Font: HobbyHorse; Size 15 mm

DesignI varied lettering, adding some all uppercase and all lower case in addition to the traditional first letter upper, remaining lower.

You can create text embroidery designs from many embroidery software programs, such as Designers Gallery Embroidery Works, Floiani FTC/U, Viking 5d Embroidery, 6D Embroidery, Palette, PE Design, and many more.

Holiday shirtDon’t just use this idea for the names of your children or grandchildren. I also create a holiday shirt for the holidays.

I added one of the Christmas embroidery designs from my collection to the text.
