Pattern incoming

So, a couple days ago my littlest got a very special toy from the thrift store (op shop/charity shop) and I noticed that it was missing something…
So since I’m very extra, especially when my interests and my kids interest merge, I took the time to figure out how to make this cute little mini blanket :eyes:
I checked for existing patterns and came up empty handed :pensive:
But
I think I nailed it :sunglasses:

That’s so cute! I’m looking forward to this blanket. Making my gma a lovey my gpa requested for her and been looking for a good blanket to add!

Is this going to be a free pattern or a paid one?

Probably free. It took almost no effort to figure out… I’m in a tight spot though so I’ll probably put in a tip link or smth.

He’s a bit off looking, that’s for sure! Luckily he doesn’t look that creepy all the time… it’s just when he’s still.
I’m curious as to why the plush company picked a thick deep pile plush fabric for an apatosaurus though :rofl:

Who knows but it is interesting to learn and understand what they want to see if we can make it.

To make it more appealing to hug and snuggle. XD It’s a kid’s toy first, ya silly.

Aww Littlefoot! Very cute, my daughter watched that movie so many times in her obsessed with dinosaurs phase.

I’m still obsessed with dinosaurs, BECAUSE of that movie series, and i’ve watched most of them. ^-^

I really do love the tree star motif. Maybe you could release it free for a day or two then paid? Or sell the final product if you make more? I bet it’d go for a really nice price.

Oh that’s a good idea… do a limited free release :thinking:
I definitely do want to sell the blankets though, I just need to find a pretty yarn for the (optional) water part
Glad to know there’s a market for it :smiling_face:

That’s exactly what my spouse said. He also expressed regret that he wasn’t able to have it as a kid :sweat_smile:
I did let him know that he’s welcome to snuggle with Littlefoot whenever Smol wasn’t doing the same :rofl:

For the water part, you could handle it ami-style, make it like a stuffed central bubble that bows out the bottom of the leaf, maybe? Then it’s a pillow-blanket!

I’ve seen something similar done by crocheting two pieces and just crochet it to the inside loops of the blanket a little further out than you think you’ll need
