Mickey Mouse Baby Set

I finished the Mickey Mouse Baby Set (thanks so much Debi for your help with the booties pattern!) and was able to get it to my friend in time... yay!

She is a huge lover of all things Disney -  even her bathroom is decorated in a Disney theme! She asked me to make her this set and I think it came out really cute:

The back of the diaper cover even has a little tail:

I can't wait to see pictures of her new baby boy in his Mickey Mouse set - she is due to deliver in early May, so it could be any day now. 


Pattern can be found here
I used Red Heart Super Saver Yarn in Black, White, Bright Yellow and Hot Red.

Pattern Help Needed ASAP Please!!

Hi everyone!

I am working on a pattern for a Mickey Mouse Baby Set for a friend, and was hoping to drop it off to her tomorrow. Of course, waiting till the last minute to try to finish it was not a good idea, as I am stuck on the pattern for the booties.

Normally I would contact the author of the pattern, but she has closed Comments on this post and I cannot find an e-mail address or any way to contact her anywhere on her blog.

Here are the exact directions:

Bootie (make 2) with yellow hook size 5 mm
chain 2
row 1: 12 sc in second chain from hook, slip stitch to join, ch 1 turn (12 sc)
row 2 to 7: sc in each sc around, slip stitch to join,ch 1 turn (12 sc)
row 8 to 13: sc in each sc around ch 1 turn, do not slip stitch to join
join the end of the bootie by slip stitch every stitch fasten off
join yarn at the space left were you did not slip stich to join every row sc around repeat two more row
I have gotten through Row 13 with no problem, but now I am totally confused as to what to do next. The directions make no sense to me, starting with "join the end of the bootie by slip stitch..."  Maybe I haven't had any coffee yet today??!!
Can any of you please explain this to me so that it makes more sense?? Thanks in advance for your help :)
