Monogrammed Sweatshirt

Several weeks ago I shared my monogrammed sweatshirt, and while I had lofty intentions of monogramming all my blank shirts, it hasn't happened... YET. But I did manage to monogram a sweatshirt for Amy, and decided to put Jolson's Interlocking Floss Stitch Monogram to use.
I like the look of this font, and it comes in several sizes.
A quick word of caution, the way this is digitized there are several jumps within each letter. I'm not exactly sure why, IMHO they could have been minimized. So if you are like me and don't have a machine that trims every jump within a color, keep an eye on it as it stitches. This won't keep me from using it again though, I really like the hand stitched look!

Hi! 3rd try getting comment to go through...What stabilizer did you use with the monogrammed sweatshirt? Did you use anything else? Thanks! Angela

You got it! I have used the same font from Jolson's twice. The first time I used a sticky stabilizer and it made the embroidered space too stiff..the paper would not wash out. On the second shirt, I used tear-away. It would not tear-away from the stitching, so I trimmed it close to the stitching lines. There must be a better way! Thanks! Angela

Angela, I used a fusible polymesh. I use cutaways on tees and sweatshirts -- more stable.
