TUTTI FRUTTI SQUARE BORDER PART 2
The Tutti Frutti Square Border Part 2 is the second part for the border for each of the 9 squares made in my Mystery Make Along.
Join me in the magical, surprise crochet journey of a mystery make along (MMAL) which is a similar to a crochet along (CAL). The difference is that you do not know what the end project will look like. The Tutti Frutti Baby Blanket is made up of small, fun to make squares, that will then be joined together and with a border added.
