I used a wide zig-zag stitch to attach the dots in random spots. If you try this, make sure to turn your work slowly to keep the stitches even and the circle well-rounded. I love the way they look.
Warm enough to swing?
Dots on the back, too.
I made a stripe on a piece of fleece using light pink fleece binding. Maya loves the look but the clip I used would have stayed in a whole lot better if she would have let me put her hair in a pony tail!
