Punch Embroidery for the Boys!
Remember Raphael of the Ninja Turtles? or the Mickey Mouse? Any theme my boys loved, I made a punch embroidery to add to their shirt. Every character was punched and outlined to recreate their favorite comic hero or interest... Of course their super heroes had muscles. Raphael is three dimentional from head to toe. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, dinosaurs, bubble gum machine, baseball blue jay logo & Giants and countless more boy stuff! Last but not least is the logo for my son's alternative rock band Dexter Danger. I applied the DD emblem to my jean jacket for their last show 10/06. The guys of the band and kids loved it. Their last show was a hit at the Bottom of the Hill in SF, packed from wall to wall. One of the photos is of my younger son (as a baby in Mickey Mouse shirt) and their show. The knitted furry like scarves are the 'brainless' projects you need when waiting in doctor or dentists offices or to pick up kids while waiting in the car. Everyone needs a simple project that doesn't require counting. The back of the jacket displays my son's Dexter Danger logo.
