Monorail Blue


Well my husband is a huge train fan, and an even larger Monorail fan. I think at this point we have ridden most of the Monorails on the planet, multiple times. So for his newest blue striped shirt that I made him he said he wanted a Monorail on it. The Mark VII Monorail Blue from Disneyland to be exact.


A Monorail?


Was he kidding?


Did he think I could just find a Monorail embroidery design on the internet somewhere, download it and just stitch it on his shirt? No, you cannot. So I decided I would need to digitize one to use from scratch. It’s painstaking work. Which would probably take longer than it took to create the shirt in the first place.


Oh well, he can never make things simple, but I always enjoy the challenges he puts in my path to create something cool, new, and most of all fun!


So I went through my Disney Pins and found one that had a suitable Monorail on it that I could use.


There was only one major problem with it. It had Tinkerbell on it and he greatly dislikes Tinkerbell. So I decided the only thing to do was to use the pin as the basis of my design and figure out some way to remove the Tinkerbell from it.


This was not easy. Since Tinkerbell was going, all of the fairy dust she was sprinkling on the pin had to go too. That wasn’t easy to remove either.


It might have been quicker to just redraw the whole thing by hand.


But in the end I think it turned out ok. What do you think? Did it turn out ok?

  1. I think it turned out awesome, but I think you should have left the fairy dust. All you have to do is think of a wonderful thing and a little bit of pixy dust. He could have been flying all over the house by now.

  2. I have been looking everywhere for a monorail design for my monorail-crazy grandson. Is this for sale? It is perfect.

    • It is not available for personal use no. It is available for purchase for commercial use through Disney. You might want to take a look at my other blog posts that I have done on how to digitize your own designs.
