To make it easier for both of us to identify which sweatshirt jacket belonged to who, I embroidered a design on the front and pockets of mine. Trust me, Mr. Pirate is much too "manly" to wear an embroidered sweatshirt. :-)
To embroider on the pockets, I removed the top-stitching from the top and side edges of the pocket so I could open it up semi-flat. I must admit that it was a little tricky getting the stitching into the corner of the pocket, since two edges of the pocket was still attached to the sweatshirt.
The motifs used were designs '06-1001a' & '06-1001b' from Skeldale House's Pearl Parfait Lace Quilt.
