I made this hand tied flannel snuggly for Grandson Oliver to use in his pram or car seat and later maybe it can be a small comfort blankie.
Obviously, I'm in America and Oliver's in Spain but I wanted to give him something that's a little piece of our heritage, England.
Finished size 20 "x 20"
Red Flannel - Darcel Phillips for Robert Kaufman Nordica 12095
Berisfords Ribbons - The Best Of British Art 13605 Soldiers and The Best Of British Art 13603
East of India Union Flag Ribbon (it's actually sold under my pet hate name 'Union Jack' >:( )
Red satin ribbon - in stash for more years than I can remember
A few sneaky pics of the snuggly in use - and a little peep at Oliver!!!
Mum, Ana, with Auntie Katie holding Oliver.
The snuggly's the perfect match for Oliver's pram.
Oliver making good use of his snuggly already.
So the snuggly's a big hit, I think my middle son, Uncle Joe, would like one of his own - at 6' 3" absolute proof that you're never too grown up for a snuggly!!!
