I have a horrible problem following patterns. I don't know why, I just do. I've tried and tried and can't follow them at all. So, once I got very confused, I finished it as I thought it would look best without messing it up. There was an extra strip that should have went where I have the purple binding, but I just couldn't make it happen. So..........I think it's cute and adorable. I'll save it for a Christmas present or for the next birthday party E gets invited to.
