Another Christmas gift completed for my 2/yo grt-GD "Cookie".

"Bunny Lovey" in Caron Simply Soft; Soft Pink, Aqua Mist and White with a H/8 hook, 24" square granny. This gift is so appropriate since she is a "hugger", hugs everything and everyone. I made a few minor changes on the ears and arms, no biggies.

Pattern courtesy of: The Stitchin Mommy

That is SO cute!  She's going to love it!  Does she have the "Pat The Bunny" book?  It'd be perfect with the lovey.  :)

 

I'm collecting yarn for an elephant lovey for my grandson, due late March.  (No working on baby items until I get Christmas gifts done.  LOL)

Thank you for commenting. The grt-GD loved it, carried it every where and insisted carrying it on the flight back home.

ETA: I failed to mention how easy it was to make and I made it in about 6 hours.

Thank you Krys. The Lovey's are such sweet gifts, so easy to make and my great grand daughter adores hers. My grnd-daughter says she won't let it go and had to draw the line when the little one wanted to take it in the bath with her.

I saw another one on Ravelry called Rainbow Zebra Lovey, so bright and cheerful. Or maybe a Lamb Lovey for her baby sister. I just can't make up my mind. So much to do and never enough time.

Thank you Reni, That colorful Zebra is very cute too:).

I almost laugh when I read about your little granddaughter Lovey and that bath together:).. That is really funny.

 

Happy Holidays!:)

Glad you chuckled Krys. This granddaughter is very funny. She asked me why I "poke the string" (crochet) so much. I told her,  "Because I like it a lot. Her reply, "Must be like ice cream the-! The really gooooood one!"

Wait until she grows up and finds out that it's better than ice cream, because it's the stress-reliever without the guilt!  :)

So true. Wish they were closer so I could teach her and her 2 sisters.

My grandmother didn't live close.  So, she usually came for a week long visit and a couple of times 2 weeks.  I was 8 when she taught me during one of her visits.  It didn't stick at the time, but when it came time for me to make my kid's baby blankets  I remembered most of what she taught me.  I had spent so much time that visit making chains and granny squares, that all those years later I was able to pick up a hook and yarn, practice and then make a baby afghan.  If those girls want to learn, it'll stick with them, even if they only do it while you're together.

Blessings on our Grandmothers! I had a wonderful, talented Grandmother who was a professional seamstress and as a young woman, had her own clothing line (1940's). She could knock out a woman's two piece suite as beautiful as anything from house of Chanel. Both she and my mother taught me to crochet, but, it was my grandmother that made me the sewer I am today. I owe that all to her. I would spend a month each summer when growing up and had her all to myself. Great times between the sewing and crocheting.
