R1 Find the center 4 sts right above the center pleats on back row, (where you join rounds). Attach yarn to the last row (top sc row) back loops right above the pleats, ch3, dc in next 3 sts, (all 4 dc should be directly centered above the center pleats).

R2 Turn, ch1, sc in same sp and next 3 sts. (4sc)

Sew button to the other side in the center, above the pleats on R16. (the dc row)

Straps~ Here you make 2 straps, 1 on the front and 1 on the back. It is the same sts as the Loop. Just center the straps in place on either side of the pleats.

R1 Attach yarn in desired location for the strap, ch3, dc in next 3 sts. (4 dc) (I went 12 sts to the left of the center pleats, attached my yarn and made my 1st. four sts here. Then when desired length of strap is achieved, attached to the corresponding # of sts on the right side of the pleats. So they are centered on either side of the pleats.)

R2 Turn, ch1, sc in same sp and next 3 sts. (4sc)

R3 Turn, ch3, dc in the next 3 sts. (4dc) Repeat R2 and R3, as many times as needed to get the desired length of strap. Finish off, leaving a tail long enough to sew the strap onto the other side of the pleats. Repeat on the opposite side.

You all have a Fantastic Friday.
Remember … be thankful for all… good and bad.
Count all trials a blessing!!!! Yes… trials are blessing! You would never grow and learn if not for the trials in your life.
So .. the next time your riding mower breaks down and you have to push mow 4 acres of land… be thankful the 4 acres are grass and the other 7 are woods.
The next time one of your children fall and split their head open requiring staples… be thankful its only staples and not major surgery.
The next time you find your life stressed… be thankful you have a life. You have a home.. a family…friends… food… etc…. and you’re not living in a box house with mud floors and the streets outside your door are covered in waste water.
And the next time you find everyone piling their own burdens on your shoulders and you feel you cant hold another one… due to your own life issues. BE THANKFUL you are trusted so confidently by others to hold their burdens for them… that you are the one they can come to because God knows and trusts you with their issues knowing they cant hold them and you can.
Be Thankful God loves you!!!!

Huge hugs…. Lots of love… and bountiful blessings to you all,

**When you go through deep waters, I will be with you.
~ Isaiah 43:2**
