"Cuddler Blanket" This version Copyright Beverly A. Qualheim 2017
Thanks to Doris Moudy for help getting it started! This
easy to crochet little blanket is the perfect cuddler toy for all
children, but especially wonderful to give to your local police and
fire depts to give to little ones who have been in a trauma situation.
Great for family shelters, domestic violence shelters, perhaps even
pediatric wards in your local hospitals... be sure to call and check to
see who needs these.
