VW Camper van

My brother in law is crazy about camper vans, It was his birthday recently so I thought I would make him something. I’m sorry to say I bought the t-shirt but I made this before the pete pattern was available, maybe next time I will make the t-shirt too. I was inspired by Kasia26 and her embroidery on her naomi, after lots of practice and patience I finally did it. To make it more personal, I decided to put my brother in laws initials and year of birth as the registration plate. It is very time consuming but it is worth it in the end.

Material Notes






Kasia26 for the inspiration

    Love the freehand look to your design. Gives the feeling as if the camper is bouncing down a road.

    Hi Antigone, Thanks for your comment, i hand drew the camper onto a piece of tracing paper which i then taped to the garment. I then removed the foot on the sewing machine and attached the embroidery plate over the fabric feed and start stitching.

    This is amazing! I am quite impressed. Did you use any kind of pattern or guide, or did you just freehand it?
