A baby shower gift, it's a CHIQ changing pad the folds up like a purse and has a pocket for a diaper!

I just LOVE the puff stitch!

I played with this flip flops trying to decide which stitch would look the best

Row 2-turn ch2, 1dc in the first dc, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the next,skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the last dc of the row

Row 3 until the the last row- turn ch 2, 1 dc in the first, *skip 1, 2dc in the next* repeat until the end of the row.
