Ch 14 to handle bags.
This pin can also be made using any yarn of your choice. I recommend using a width yarn 2 or 3 and slightly smaller hook than what the yarn calls for, I used a 1,3mm for mine. Use sewing or embroidery thread to attach to button.
If you use floss I highly recommend unwinding your skein of embroidery thread onto a floss divider 1st to keep it from tangling as you work.
Sew the pieces together as it looks like in the picture.
Sew a pin back to the backside of the bag. Attach a brooch pin if you want to have a brooch or a pony tail if you want to have a hair scrunchy.
It may also be bag for dolls.
♥ Enjoy, and Happy hooking!!!
These necklaces are very easy to put together and not only are they stylish but also functional.
The point is for the baby to have something to play with while he or she is nursing.
They appeal to babies sense of vision and touch and can also be used as teethers (as long as the right materials are used and under constant supervision).
You can just hand-wash the necklace in warm water if it gets goopy from baby drool
You want to try to find non-toxic, natural materials
- Unfinished wooden beads in 3/4 inch and 1 inch sizes.
