Cardinals mean so much to me.. My grandma loved cardinals.. Every time I see a cardinal I think of her.. and I thought making a lovey would be fun!! There is some sewing but it is very simple!! The lovey has a wonderful texture to it.. measures approximately 14 inches from point to point. You can do this in almost any color combination.. A blue bird, a parrot, an owl, even tweety!! Have fun.. I hope you will enjoy!! You may sell finished product from my pattern but please give credit to me for the original design!! I have spent a lot of time getting this pattern exactly right!! If you have any comments, questions, or concerns please feel free to email me at email@example.com You must use your own pictures!!!!
