lilac dinosaurs

The reason for my choosing to visit The Natural History Museum on our last trip to London, was because our young friend Hannah loves dinosaurs. This is the scarf Toby knitted for her as a suprise present. He played around in photoshop and then printed off these Triceratops, in co-ordinating lilac, onto image transfer paper. Toby then ironed it onto fabric, hemmed and sewed them onto the scarf.

what a thoughtful gift! that is amazing. the colours of the knitting sits so nice next to the triceratops. when i was little i had a plastic triceratops and one of them long necked ones. we had collected the tokens from weetabix boxes and sent off for them. dx.

Hannah loves her scarf - dinosaurs are her favourite things in the world - and no-one else at school has anything at all like it!! Thank you Toby.
