I am trying to make these for my DD, and I cannot figure out how to finish them off. Any ideas? Anybody?

Just the finishing part...? You would leave your stitches on the needle, cut the yarn leaving about 18", and using a darning needle or crochet hook (instead of making an extra loop) pull the tail through the stitches like a drawstring and pull them snugly. I use this for the top of a hat or mittens and usually pull the tail through twice to make sure it's secured.  Then do a slip stitch to seam the edges together.

Slip stitch is done with the crochet hook.  If you need help, maybe watch this video?

Right, crocheted slip stitch, not slip a stitch like in knitting.
