I adore white cotton whenever I see it I think of hot summer days. When the girls were younger a white cotton sundress was the must have item. I would often add a crochet corsage, or perhaps a beautiful scalloped edged hem. Just to make it extra special. The girls are older so I now have to content myself by making something else.
I have so much 4ply and dk cotton I found this granny square pattern from a charity shop.The original pattern was made in some really ugly yarn . I used a different sized hook ,9 motifs later added a beautiful edging .I'm really pleased.I have never been good at lining but I had a go and I must say it has turned out much better than I thought it would. I'm making a back to it ,I want it to be a project bag. Something to remind me of those sticky hot summer days.
