Making better use of my embroidery machine

I got several plain t-shirts months ago, wanted to some embroidery, but didn't get to do so till few days ago.
Got these cheap t-shirts from Hang Ten, 3 for $10. They only come in black, otherwise I will buy loads of them :> The Piglet and Tigger embroidery patterns are original in the form of outline, and the one on the left is actually coloured, but I only embroidered the outline. I actually prefer the end result of the one on the left.
Hanhan wanted one too, and of course she got to select the design and t-shirt colour. I happened to have a pink plain polo T, so I made a matching mother and daughter set :) I'm now thinking of getting Daddy a plain top too, so that next time we can have a family set :))
More embroidering. Playing with using colour threads to filled up the pic and just using outline.
Loving my embroidery machine, more and more. It's so fun!

I have just bought a Brother Innovis 1250D last year. Didn't know that we can just embroider the outline of the disney character on the T-shirt. I love your creative idea. Thanks !
