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.
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!
I wish you all a Very Merry Christmas!
