My cousin is having a fall baby and her boyfriend mom is making a blanket so I didnt' want to make her one but I thought I could make a lovey for the baby and a layette. I have a few layette patterns but not any for the lovey. What kind of animal do you suggest and do you have any patterns for them? I want something the little one can carry round with him/her for a long time. Thanks.

Here's a link to a cute teddy bear pattern. In the picture it shows the bare dressed in girl cloths, but there is a link at the top for a pattern to make boy cloths for it. Cute little overalls and a cap.

Cute book, Empress!!

I also have this one is my collection, I've made the monkey pattern myself and I've seen the giraffe and elephant done by others - all turned out very cute.

For a kid born to more modern parents, you might make one of Roxycraft's amgurumi critters.

Here is a bear on Bernat. It is even listed as an easy pattern. I have not tried it yet but it is on my to-do list.

This is easy. ;)

Lovey the Octopus.

If you can do that, you can make a sort of caterpillar (or segmented worm, if you don't want to make legs)...Just follow the directions for the octopus without making the legs...Do rounds 1 - 16, then do two rounds of six sts each, then rounds 2 - 16. Continue on in that manner (always with 2 rounds of 6 sts) until you've got four or five segments--always stuff as you go, btw, stop at about round 15 to stuff--, then finish it off as described in the octopus pattern. This makes something similar to what you can see in the photo here.

One thing: you want to stuff your toys pretty lightly, so that they're squishy. This will make them easier for a little one to grab onto.
