Pattern Description:

My best-selling pattern! Four designs included.

A sweet little animal face attached to a soft blankie body makes a perfect first toy for babies to hug and hold! This pattern gives you instructions to make adorable kitty, bear, bunny and puppy lovies that make great handmade gifts for new babies. Lovey Dovies are easy and quick to make and fun to customize. They are sure to be the star of your next baby shower!

This sewing pattern includes step-by-step photos, clear written instructions, and full-sized templates. You'll be able to make an adorable Lovey Dovey with ease!

This project comes together with just a little bit of fabric and a little bit of time, and the results are so adorable. I think you're going to love this toy!

I recommend using fleece for this project because it is soft, a bit stretchy, vibrantly colored, and inexpensive. Other fabrics may be substituted, but fleece is recommended.

Thank you and happy sewing!

Excellent Easy and adorable new-baby gift  April 23, 2013

I previously made the elephant from the second edition of the Lovey Doveys for a cousin's baby, and the bunny is just as great, and a little easier (no trunk!). Easy to sew, looks cute and cuddly, and lots of personality in its little face.
