Do you remember the super soft Amigurumi Owl I posted about few months ago?
Well, I happened to have some yarn leftovers from that project and since this yarn is soft and perfect to create safe and cuddly items, I came up with the idea of crocheting a baby safety blanket!
Everyone knows how much babies love to have something familiar and comforting in the crib, to help them fall asleep and feel safe.
Beyond the nice and soft touch, the safe baby blankie I've designed works perfectly as a crib toy thanks to bunny head applique!
So, are you ready to work with thew softest yarn and create a unique and sweet friend for your little one?
Here's the free crochet pattern!
