4 Square Top tutorial

Spring is in the air and I've got just the top to welcome it here...


I couldn't resist making this top after I viewed a similar top by Free People (the free people top is no longer on their site).  It's super easy to make and only requires 1 yard of fabric plus some bias tape or ribbon for the shoulder straps.  It's made up of (4) 18" squares.  Here's the tute...

I'd like to try to crochet the edges via this tute on my next 4 Square Top.  Maybe pop some random color with the crocheting?  I'd also like to try a lace fabric.  Oooh... maybe crochet the edges of a lace fabric.  That's what I'll do!

Anywho, if you make the top, please share your pics on the Pretty Ditty flickr group.  I would love to see it made up in other fabrics.


Cheers,

Jamie

So cute and looks so easy! I was thinking of making my pieces longer and making a dress out of it? Think that would work?
