Crochet Baby Comforter – A great baby shower gift

Crochet Baby Comforter - A great baby shower gift www.yarnya.co (1)Today I wanted to show you this adorable little bunny comforter I made as a baby shower gift for a friend of mine and I’m happy to say that she loved it. Isn’t it cute? I think so and the best part is, it’s super easy to make.

There’s no pattern as such, as you can make one of these using any amigurumi pattern that you have to hand. It’s made by just merging a granny square with the head and arms of any soft toy that you like to make. The pattern I used can be found over at Brittas Ami, but the best part is you can just let your creativity flow – add bows, scalloped edges, a fluffy border – the possibilities are endless!

To get started –

1 – Crochet a square to about 30cm. Use one big granny square, several small ones, or any pattern you like to end up with a shape that’s approximately 30cm in diameter.

2 – Make up the head and arms from any pattern of your choice – bunnys, dolls, aliens, monsters … anything is possible!

3 – Simply sew the parts together and voila! Instant cuteness.

  1. This is seriously the cutest thing I have seen. I have now set my mind to it even though I have never crocheted in my life! Do you think it would be possible to make for a first timer? Also do you think I could put an already made toys head on instead of making one myself? So cute seriously!!

      Thank you! Such a lovely comment 😀 I don’t see why a beginner couldn’t make this. It’s far easier than a complete teddy, plus granny squares are the -perfect- beginner project. And with the right existing head – why not? That is the best part about this design – it’s so versatile. You’d just need to make sure the head and arms are stitched on extra tight so that it doesn’t come off. If you do make it, drop me a line – love to hear how it goes 🙂

      • I definitely will! Is there anything underneath that you are holding onto to hold the bunny head up? I have been googling crochet classes today and they are sold out for weeks! Who knew there was a craze going on? Also what ply yarn did you use (is that even the correct terminology? Thanks for the inspiration :).

        Hey! Yea crochet has got really popular lately, which is good cause there’s tons of help online. I learned using youtube and an awesome book called Unravelled. And nope, nothing is holding the head up, it’s just filled with stuffing and is laying on the floor – and this is a double knit yarn … so an 8ply 🙂 used a 4mm hook. Any questions just give me a shout.

      • Awesome thanks! Would you be able to take a photo of the underneath? Just so I could see how you stitched it? Did you stitch it on using some form of crocheting or just norming sewing like you would use sewing on a button to a shirt? Thanks for the book and youtube advice I might have to look into that if all else fails :).

        I’m sorry, but I don’t have it anymore. It was made for a friend’s baby shower (in the pic)… but it was just sewn on – a lot! Like a button though. Hope that helps 🙂
