Applique and colour blocked Farbenmix Antonia

applique antonia

I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and try using some colour combos that I'd normally avoid. I also wanted to do something interesting on the front of the top - if I had an embroidery machine I would have used that, but I don't so I drew the daisy and appliqued it to the front.

This top was destined for my little Congo Cart that I have on the Crafty Mamas Marketplace, but my machine was annoying and skipped a few stitches on the applique (it may possibly have been user error......there is an ever so slight possibility I forgot to change the needle to a stretch needle. Shhhh. Don't tel anyone lol). All is not lost though - the top has found an owner who loves it and I have a little more of the Hilco dots and a heap more of the Stella fabric so I can try again. Maybe. If my attention span lets me..........I may just go on to something else.......cause I'm a bit like that :)

The colour combinations looks brilliant. I am sitting at the computer with my seventeen month old daughter and she was SO excited when she saw it. Pointing with glee.
