Tee Shirt Designed and Stitched by Anna Mastropolo 

(Click here to learnn about Anna Our Kids' Project Creator!)

This tee shirt was embellished by Anna for her mother' friend, Laurie's daughter, Radhika who really likes the color black. Anna used a blue color scheme for the embroidery and decorated it further with silver rhinestones. Anna says, "For Radhika's Tee shirt I chose black because it's her favorite color in clothing. Radhika's parents are from India so her black hair and skin tones would look pretty with the very sparkly and bold colors of Snow in Sky Blue and Rachelette in Lavender Rose. I wanted to use the rhinestones for the same reason. I also thought the shades of blue would be pretty to wear with jeans...I liked blues with the black shirt."

Watercolours 127- Crystal Bay - about 36"

Rachelette - A 7 - Blue Black - about 36"
