    I love this idea. So elegant in its (apparent) simplicity.

    Great idea!  I think I would add beads, too!  Can't wait to try it!

    Beads are a great idea! Would love to see that...

    so cute! I love re-fashioning the old things and I find the embroidery is amazing for it. If you are bored with the design, you can take it out and start new, and embroider the new design! So cool!

    Yeah, totally. I think it adds a simple wow factor too...

    Love this!! I love a good tank in the summer and this will make them look so unique!

    Me too! I can live in tank tops in the summer & this was you look DIY in your own colors...

    Amazing! I love how you made such utilitarian stitches look feminine and lovely. And the color combination is adorable!

    Is there a needle you recommend for sewing on these light knits without snagging?

    I usually use a size 7 embroidery needle. I didn't have any snagging problems just getting the tension right is hard with stretchy fabrics.
