    Crochet top - Christmas gift

    Sure do hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas today!

    Ours was great! I made this top for my step daughter-in-law for Christmas & she loved it so much she had to put it on right away. Last year I had made the peace sign puppy quilt for her daughter for Christmas, the year before that it was an airplane quilt for her son for his birthday. Now I'm done making gifts for them. The step son got a quilt years ago, so everyone has something homemade by me.

    I really love your post. It sounds like they LOVE what you make for them.

    I read post where the individuals do not love or appreciate what is made and it makes me sad.

    Please continue to make special items for special people- If they love them- you are a very lucky person.

    Keep up the good work!!!

    Please tell us the pattern name.

    Its beautiful and she is gorgeous! You are so talented. Wished I understood how to make clothing items via crocheting. I can crochet, but not like this. Fabulous!!

    The pattern came from a Leisure Arts booklet titled Pretty Tops in thread by Kathryn A. Clark. I found it one day at a thrift store (69cents) & had to get it once I saw the pattern I used. I knew it would be perfect for my DIL. My DH told me what color to use & helped to get the thread needed. This is my first attempt at making clothing with thread & I think I may do it again someday.
