Kids Clothing Foxy Top Featuring HeatnBond® Soft Stretch Hem Tape

Fox Top

I am in love with all of the beautiful Girl Charlee knits that they carry in their shop, there is something for everyone.  I bet you will have a hard time picking out a favorite.  Here is another top that I made for daughter to help her finish out the school year.  I knew when I saw the awesome knits from Girl Charlee that she would love another top with these cute little foxes on them.
