Amir loves hugs and cuddles. He’s super soft and sports a beautiful blanket designed and made by my daughter, Vada. Vada also came up with the idea to make an elephant for the Softie CAL. Amir would make a great gift! I have included details on making the blanket with a Cricut, along with how to make a fabric inner lining if you are concerned about stuffing poking through.
