For the cover I made 12 squares. I whip stitched them together in 4 rows of 3 squares each.

I placed a smiley face button at the joining of each 4 square group as a reinforcement and decoration. Since this is for a 4 year old little girl, I did a plain edging of hdc. I worked 3 hdc in the center of each corner and 1 hdc in each stitch around. I worked a dc cross stitch over the seams of the row ends.
