Shark and lavender embroidery patterns

During our big pre-Christmas tidy-up on Sunday I found this plain grey t-shirt in my to-do pile. I had put it aside to embellish for Mil in some way, but until now I had not got around to doing anything with it. Last night I fancied some mindless stitching in front of the TV, and this morning this is what he got. I have added the pattern here in my free downloads.

I was really struck when Mil first put it on this morning, as he immediately began tracing his finger over the lines, which is exactly what I am compelled to do with embroidery. Do you do that?!

I've also added to the free pattern sheet, my lavender embroidery pattern. I'm not sure how many of you are doing lavender related embroidery in the depths of December, but maybe for next year!

My youngest son has always been very tactile. Whenever I get fabric postcards sent to me in the post, he is always running his fingers over them. I have always found embroider to be tactile, so I can't blame him
