Silly String Top

Just finished this top.  Gotta love red and white..  Gotta love scraps..
 Found this old goodie in the stash...perfect for the back.
 It all started like this.   I found a tute from Rachel on making Chevrons with legal size computer paper.  In May, I decided to just use ordinary computer paper with my red and white string scraps.  Bad!!  I did not like tearing off the paper and I did not like the Chevrons, so I put it away.
 I almost threw it away or donated it.  Taking it out months later, I chose to play with it... medallion style to see how I could make it work.
I am glad I did.
Time to pull a bit of holiday fabric for tissue covers...Time to relax and get ready for the season with little things with great love..
