  1. What is a ‘picot’ edge?

  2. Oops – meant to add that if you use a small pearlized button instead and sew it down tighter, it’ll look more like a real flower too if you can’t find fancier buttons.

  3. I’m sorry but I had to make one correction: It took me a while to figure out you meant ‘picot’ edge, not picket (which will cause confusion). Otherwise, very cute pattern. :)
