Cyndy from Hastings, Minnesota, made this sweet top for her granddaughter, Emma. The pattern is “Fancy Free” by Denise Bakes, from Australian Smocking & Embroidery magazine, issue 96.
“The fabrics are 100% cotton that I bought at Hancock fabrics. The pink floral print is accented with a 1/4″ black and white gingham check,” said Cyndy.
“I paired this top with some leggings, but it could easily be paired with jeans too.”
Cyndy is currently the president of the Lakes & Prairies chapter of the Smocking Arts Guild of America.
