CUTE, CUTE, CUTE, and this is really your COLORS!!! :o) I LOVE IT! (Oh, I almost forgot: I think I got that fabric at Fabric Mart Fabrics. We have so much fabric, we can't keep it all straight!)

I just got this issue and I think you just gave me my first project from it! Great little top, it looks adorable on you - and the fabric is great.

I LOVE version No. 2. That mock binding really sets it off, and that FABRIC is so cute! Does it have little sparkly things on it? And what do you mean by a "mock binding"? Don't mock me for asking! :o))

Meggie LuLu said...
Annette, I added mock piping NOT mock BINDING!! You are SOOOOO FUNNY!! LOL!! Yes, the fabric does have little sparkly thingies on it!! Thanks everyone for the very nice comments.
