First one up for your perusal is the Love Bus Antonia. This shirt is going to be a gift for Moo's best friend.
I LOVE this shirt.
I thought Moo needed something she could have that was similar to her friend's shirt, but not the same. So I made her a top with a peace symbol. It's from the same embroidery set as the Love Bus, Love & Peace by Luzia Pimpinella.
The first time Moo saw this shirt she asked me why I made her a shirt with a steering wheel on it.
This last Antonia was influenced by Andrea of Jolijou. Andrea uses blue and red together quite often, and I really like that colour combination. I wanted to use another one of Nic's embroideries, but I thought the design was too dense for stitching out directly onto the knit, so I embroidered onto a piece of gingham. I then sewed that onto the shirt with a decorative stitch and then added some buttons and ribbon. Now before you say, "Oh Sara, you are so clever", I must tell you that I am not. Nic did something similar with her fabbo gnomes embroidery.
I also realised that in my insane state that I didn't say when a winner of the fabric would be drawn. I'm thinking Saturday because even if I did something before then, there is no way I'm making it to the post office before next week. Hopefully I will be able to still do my Monday morning coffees. The cafe where we have coffee is conveniently close to an Aus Post outlet.
