NOTE: HOW TO MAKE A CRAB STITCH:

The crab stitch, is made by doing single crochet stitches. With one major difference: the stitches are done in the opposite direction. So right-handed people work the reverse sc from left to right, and left-handed people from right to left.


Strap: 


With CA, ch 36, fasten off. Make knot from both sides.



Pull up the strap through the center of the top.

HOW TO MAKE SNOWFLAKES:
With sew needle and white thread make straight line then X lines.









Attach 3 beads on the long tail inside the bell and make knots between them.



The bell is ready!
Happy Crocheting!!!!!
I wish you all a Very Merry Christmas!
