Weave in all ends. I closed the back of the dress with ties that are just tied in bows because they are for dolls not babies.

Ok, I used an I hook and ww yarn in grey. Here's how:
- Ch 2; 6 hdc in loop; join with ss
- Ch 2; 2 hdc in each st; join with ss
- Ch 2; 2 hdc in each st; join with ss
- Ch 2; 1 hdc in each st; join with ss
- Ch 2; 1 hdc in each st; join and fasten off.
With color of your choice and an H hook, ch 35 (I used Peaches & Cream in a green and white verrigated).
Ok, my dollars needed some change to go with it so I made a penny!
Ok, I thought I would make a set of coasters that used the sewing machine because I have tons of felt and I was wondering what to do with it all. So, here is one project. I will try to get the construction too.
I made these after a joke my mother in law made. I was making a flip flop coaster and started posting pictures of them. But there was money in the picture. My mother in law asked if I was crocheting money, so I said, "Nope but give me a sec!"
