Sneak Preview!

I've been working on some Farbenmix Lore tops over the last few days. I had been seeing such cute ones on Flickr lately (wanna see? look here, here, and here) and was dying to do one myself. I ordered the pattern directly from Farbenmix, which, for my non-European readers, could not be simpler. They have great customer service, the pricing is fine, and the shipping really is pretty quick. I highly recommend it!

Anyway, I decided to embroider my Lore tops with some dragons from I told my daughter I'd be making her a dragon shirt, and she exclaimed, "FINALLY! You're making me something BOYish!" I didn't have the heart to explain to her that this particular dragon was going to be pink, and there would be flowers and bows all over the place.

I made one for my daughter and one for Cobblestone Park. The tops will eventually be paired with a Farbenmix Emely skirt; I just won that pattern on eBay and am waiting very impatiently for it to arrive!

In the meantime, here is the top:

The skirt is going to be green and orange, with pink trim and, of course, some embroidery thrown in there for good measure.

But since I don't have the pattern yet, my next order of business is to make my first custom order! Hooray! Well, it's for my sister, but it counts. It will be a baby boy's long-sleeved monster shirt, and I'll put an identical one up on Cobblestone Park. The vision in my mind of this is adorable; let's hope I can pull it off. I'll be using some of Bamblue Fabric's hemp stripe, which turned quite soft when washed up. Good stuff.
