Fleece Navidad the Alpaca

Fleece gets her holiday vibes from her red and white striped bias scarf. A nicely textured yarn gives her a curly appearance. She is shaped with simple increases and decreases, and worked in the round in several pieces that are sewn together.

Lily Lamb Tote

This lamb softie does double duty: she’s a sweet and huggable friend, but when you “shear” her by removing her fleece, she becomes a tote that’s perfect for Easter egg hunts. Once the hunt is over, just tuck in her handles, slip her fleece back on and she’s all ready for cuddles.
