This little boy loves his new snuggle bunny.
I’m not surprised- I designed it just for him.
He loves the texture of his puzzle blanket (the one he is laying on in the picture) and loves to have it up against his face (don’t worry, we supervise this and never let him sleep like that!). He also loves to hold on to his burp rag.
When I was little and went with my dad to milk cows, he would make us paper towel dolls. They were just a paper towel with a little twist. That was my inspiration for this lovey. Super simple, made to look like a knit washcloth.
When I showed it to Spencer when I was finished he said it looked like a paper towel doll. I knew I had done it right.
