I love making lovies for baby gifts! Sometimes I need a gift FAST, like within a couple of hours fast, and I just don't have the time to make the little character for the top of the lovey. Maybe that's not your problem, maybe a little person in your life has a stuffed animal that has been loved to pieces and you want to repurpose it. Maybe you don't enjoy amigurumi crochet. Or maybe you are brand spanking new to crochet and you want to make a cute gift but you aren't ready to take on a complicated character for the top of the lovey. The Easy Peasy Lovey is a great solution to my problem and yours.

It does require a specific type of yarn to make the Easy Peasy Lovey, unless you are repurposing a worn out stuffed animal, Top This yarn comes with a little character that matches the yarn and one skein is the perfect amount of yarn for a lovey!!! You will never make a lovey faster than this and there are so many cute characters to choose from. My boy was fascinated with the elephant.
Crocheting kits around $10 or less, excluding shipping!
One thing I love about this project is that the one skein of yarn comes with everything that you need. The one skein is enough yarn to make the blanket and as a bonus the yarn itself changes in textures! There is a soft furry section, a plain color section and a multi color section making it a great sensory gift. The character that is included with the skein has ribbons already sewn in place that you can use to attach it to the lovey. We are talking very minimal work for a very excellent reward. It almost doesn't get better does it?
I hope you enjoy making your very own Easy Peasy Lovey for a sweet one in your life.
