Latest special order

My cousins daughter asked about a special order shirt for her daughter's first birthday.  She bought the shirt, fabric and had the number designed already done,  I think it turned out pretty cute.  I have never done applique like this before

Please ignore the photography, that is definitely not my strong suit.  I think if I ever do something like this again I'm going to suggest using 2 different thread colors.  Maybe a lighter color for the outline of the number and a darker one for the lettering.
But overall I'm happy with how it turned out, I put Floriani No Show Fusible Mesh on the back to help with the scratchiness of the embroidery.
Well until next time,
