I went through all of my squares and chose what I thought would be nice for her. I decided on lighter, springy colors and left out all of my deep red and gold and dark gray squares. Then I just laid them all out on my table and started putting them in groups.
Just trying to keep colors separate and spread it all out nicely. Decided on a 3X3 pattern. So 3 squares up and 3 squares across. :) Also 3 for each side and 3 for the bottom.
I pieced them all together yesterday and made a fun flirty border on top-
I'm working on the straps now. I'm thinking white like the border and then maybe 1 or 2 single crochet stripes of some fun colors from the bag. Blue? Green? Still deciding! Then this weekend I'm shopping for some fun fabric to make the lining with and I'll hand sew that in next week. It's a pretty quick project once you have the masses of squares completed, haha. I think Mama will love it.
