Jessica shares her preferred method for handwork on t-shirts: using a backing made from the same material as the t-shirt as a stabilizer and a wash-away topper fitted into the hoop.

Jessica offers trips and clever tricks along the way as she takes you from tracing a design to hooping up to hand sewing.
