Today I am proud to show you lovey blankie I made for my baby girl. I didn’t have a particular pattern or design, just an idea in my mind and I added some bits as I went through violet Rico yarn. I started knitting small blanket in basket weave to give it nice texture and finished in crochet picot edge. I still had a small ball of yarn left so I decided to try amigurumi elephant, it was just enough to make head and arms and to sew all bits together. I was really pleased with the effect and my baby seemed to like it too. At some point she couldn’t fall asleep without her lovey.
Without further ado, I present to you Ellie the Elephant.
Ellie makes really nice cuddly toy, can go for a walk as stroller companion or can even keep your wriggly baby warm at night if made big enough. My girl was a bit startled by me taking a photo but still held her lovey 🙂
How about making a lovey tonight?
