Who doesn't love a lovey blanket? They make great gifts for newborns and are sure to be their absolute favorite!
This little lovey was inspired by my niece who 'was' expecting - and just recently gave birth to - my first great nephew! After making an adorable crochet camo infant bear hat (free pattern here) for her I decided to make a matching bear lovey (I had so much leftover yarn!). And then since I had some different leftover yarn from another project I decided to make one out of that too!
