Looking for a quick project for that baby shower that appeared out of nowhere? Sure, you could make a full-size baby blanket, but a lovey will be twice as cute and take half the time! This class will teach not only a basic Granny square (session 1), but also the very basics of amigurumi stuffed toys (session 2). You’ll walk away with a quick, unique project that will stand out in the piles of onesies and toys.
