Cuddly Crochet Koala Baby Shower Gift Idea

"Make this crochet lovey pattern for your favorite little marsupial. The koala works up quickly using only one skein and some scrap yarn, which makes it a perfect baby shower gift idea. Instructions include a bow that can be used as a bowtie or a ear bow, making this crochet toy totally gender neutral. Add this cuddly koala to a new baby's gift basket or just keep a couple on hand to give to friends' new little ones. This lovey pattern is quick and affordable enough to make a great charity gift too!"

It has been years since I crochet and have been wanting to get back into it. This cute cuddly crochet koala bear may just be the one to get my started back. It is so cute and just the right size for a little one. A good tutorial to follow. This looks easy enough for a beginner too. I love the bow or bowtie because that is where you can add color. Thats for the inspiration to get back into crocheting.

This is a cute little lovey that is quick to work up. It is just the right size for a little one to play with. I personally would not add the fur type yarn to the ears if making this for a baby. Babies put everything in their mouths, and some of these yarns shed.

Oh my goodness, this is the cutest little crochet pattern I've ever seen! I definitely want to make one of these for my cousin's baby.
