A Bath Mat for Simone
Clara and Simone are dolls approximately l11” in height. In the HP Craftalong, my daughter and I have been crafting for these dolls. She made a beautiful bed, mattress, sheets, pillows and cases, as well as throw pillows. I made clothes for Clara and an afghan for Simone. It is time for both girls to have a throw rug… either for the bath or bedside.

Crochet thread (I used Peaches and Cream 100% cotton for weaving for the white mat)
A yarn needle (to weave ends in)
