Embroidery, The Wizard of Oz

The Wizard of Oz embroidery!
I have been on a Wizard of Oz kick lately. I am working with a fellow teacher on setting up a successful show for our students. A lot goes into a show and instead of kicking and screaming it is best just to embrace it and fall head over heels. I searched high and low for the perfect embroidery design for our show, The Wizard of Oz. I wanted only the title so I could place it on the lapel of any polo shirt. We will have t-shirts made too, but I wanted polos shirts for the adults who help. This design is from EmbroideryDesigns.com.
It worked perfectly! It is a little dense, so I used Pellon 808 craft fuse for my stabilizer. I didn't want the stitches to move around and get all yucky. If you do use craft fuse, remember to leave the fuse side facing up when embroidering the design.
Now I just need to find a pair of ruby red slippers. Any suggestions on where to find them?

Shoes for you? If so and if you wear Keds type shoes, you could probably paint a white pair sparkling red.

Yes shoes for me. I am the crazy teacher that really gets into my work. Keds! That is a great idea!!! Then, they will be comfortable too!
