This week on STT, Teresa walks us through her latest sewing project: how to make a lovey love with Cuddle® Minky! She'll be teaching how to make a Lovey Love by Melly & Me - the pattern can be purchased here: https://www.mellyandme.com/product-page/lovey-love-e-pattern
This project is an adorable "Lovey Love" mini blanket in the shape of an adorable bunny. It's SEW rewarding to make something for precious, tiny hands! This is a quick sew project for a baby shower or for a visit to a new mom's house. Handmade gifts are always so memorable and heartfelt and this is a project that both beginners and intermediate sewers can handle with ease. The completed size would be approximately 12.5' (32 cm) long.
This project is a great way to blend cotton and Cuddle®. Folks who are interested in learning how to make toys will love learning how to make these Loveys; it's also the perfect project to put those extra scrap materials to good use. Projects like this one are perfect as gifts for new moms and their babies because of the comforting feel the material provides. We absolutely LOVE the grey and cedarwood color-scheme!
The Lovey Love in this episode of STT is made with these fabrics:
