Extended the handle quite a bit so it would hang on my granddaughter's bedpost for her 'tooth fair bag'. Sewed the sides up to the handle, and left the middle open. It's just big enough to hold a precious treasure, and the dollar sticks up enough she can see at a glance she had received her anticipated visitor! This worked up well, though a little 'wavy' at first, but that may have been my tension. (I'm used to using a MUCH larger hook) and since it was folded in half, the wavy wasn't overly troublesome. As a Nana, I recommend this pattern for any little girl's tooth fairy visits!
