|Hooped through the arms|
My daughter asked if I could embroider a couple of t-shirts for the kids to wear on Halloween. My grandson's costume, a traffic light, was not very conducive to wearing during the school day. He wanted a skeleton on his. I didn't have any I liked in my stash of designs, so off to Embroidery Library. I found a cute one there.
To hoop his shirt, I put the arms of the embroidery hoop through the arms of the t-shirt and then made sure the bobbin arm went through the neck opening. Some iron-on mesh stabilizer on the shirt and a piece of tear-away floated under the shirt provided all the support needed.

My granddaughter didn't want a costume, just a shirt with a Jack-o-lantern on it. She had seen one that had eyelashes and a heart shaped nose. Again nothing in my stash of designs. I found this build a Jack-o-lantern at Embroidery Library. I just used iron-on mesh stabilizer on her shirt because the fabric appliqué helped to support the stitches.
I built the Jack-o-lantern in my software, choosing the eyes with eyelashes and a pretty lips mouth. Because her design was taller, I hooped her shirt with the arms of the embroidery hoop through the neck and bottom of the shirt. Then the bobbin arm went through a sleeve.

They both liked their shirts. My grandson liked to pose like the dancing skeleton and my granddaughter really liked the fancy eyes and lips on her Jack-o-lantern.
