Summer Mini for Maria

My summer mini has arrived at Maria of the The Next Stage Blog
Thankfully she is happy with it
I was discussing the mini with my sister and she suggested I make a bikini
That night the old song Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka dot bikini popped into my head and wouldn't go away
The next morning I heard that song on the radio I had not heard it for years
So that was it I set to work and made a bikini mini

A little while later Travelling Treasures arrived at my house and in it was the perfect bikini fabric
Some reverse sewing took place and this is the mini I sent to Maria
You can view the song here
So pleased Maria liked it
It has been described as Whimsical
