I spent about 20 bucks on yarn, cause I was completely out of use-able ones. Umm.. It took me way longer than 6 hrs, because I am an extremely slow crocheter, and I've been super lazy and tired. Also, my ends aren't even, because i'm still learning. A benefit from doing this project is definitely that I learned how to do the simple and cute picot edging and I learned how to change colors! All in all I loved this project! It's super easy and fun!
