Shirts for Thomas

Beth requested a couple shirts for her nephew, whose first birthday was this weekend:
 First, an adorable tie shirt:
 The neck tie applique design is from GG Designs. I added his monogram to the bottom of his tie. (I don't have a link for this monogram set -- I've had it since I received my machine and wasn't keeping track of that info yet!)
Next, a little dinosaur shirt:
The dinosaur applique designs is from Lynnie Pinnie. I added "Thomasaurus" with Embird Alphabet #18.
We also put "roar!" on the back:

so cute! Love the additional Roar! What size of hoop or kind of hoop did you use for them?

Staci, I use my regular hoops. My 4x4" hoop is actually 126x110mm which is so nice, I can use 4x4 designs and have room to add a name, love that extra inch in one direction!
I use a hoopless method though... so I hoop polymesh cutaway stabilizer, spray it with adhesive and lay my shirt down on top (and pin outside stitching area for extra security). That allows me to put designs so close to the collar. :)
