My cousin recently gave birth to a baby boy, so I put together a special handmade gift for him.  I started making the blanket when I first found out she was pregnant, but the rest of the gift I made this past month.  The blanket was knit in three different stitches, stockinette, reverse stockinette and seed stitch.  It's reversible.  Then I crocheted a hat and knit some booties to match.  They are all made in a seafoam green color cotton yarn.  I still did not know the sex of the baby.  Then the baby was born, and I found out it is a boy, so I knit a blue teddy bear.  He has a little grommet in his ear with a blue ribbon passed through it.  This way the bear can be attached to a stroller or a car seat and will not get lost.  The ribbon has a snap fastener on it.   Here it is all photographed together...



And here is a close-up of the bear's head.  You can see his embroidered eyes and the ear....

The grommet/ribbon idea is BRILLIANT!

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

I made this lovely little bear too!  I am completely enthralled with the pattern.  I'm sure I'll be making many more.

That's a different pattern than I used, but it does look similar.  Aren't they great?

Wow! What a really cute idea for the bear.
And I love the color you chose, good for either gender (I would think, anyway.). Smiley
