I was so excited I didn't rully explain. The head of the bear needs to be stuffed and the arms attached. After that I will sew the bear to the blanket. Its not a blanket to really cover with...more like just snuggle with
. Over the past few years I have seen these small blankets get lots of love from their owners (I work in a daycare). I make mine a little bit bigger than the ones sold in stores becasue if the baby falls asleep while holding onto the bear/rabbit etc. you can drape it over them. I have seen them used as a lap blanket for infants. I also like your idea of using it as sort of a play mat. I could add a second one on a different corner using a slightly different textured yarn to spike the infants curriousity! Thanks for the idea Jan
And thank you everyone for the praise
* I will post pics of the snuggle blanket when it is all put together!
