Peace, love and happiness

A friend of Mollie's had a birthday back in December.  I made her a top.  I really wanted to make an effort to make a gift because Moo's friend was moving up to Queensland.

I used an old favourite, the Farbenmix Antonia pattern.  I didn't have enough of the pink daisy fabric for the whole top, so I used a matching green knit for the back. The sleeves and "ribbing" are a rainbow stripe knit from Crafty Mamas (love those Gala stripe knits!).   I also put a Love Bus embroidery on the front.  I enlarged it, but I think I should have kept it the standard large size.  Unfortunately you can't buy that embroidery design any more.

Sara, your kids friends are lucky I reckon! You really have the knack of pulling great fabrics together. I have this pattern- it's in the haven't made it up pile that makes me cringe. Happy New Year! Hope 2013 is a good one for you x
