Kirra Lovey

I've been on a Koala kick recently!

First Kirra came along, and you can find the blog post about her here.

And then I was asked if I made a 'lovey' version. So I made one! If you aren't sure what a lovey is, it's a cross between a blanket and a toy, like a little security blanket (the term can really be applied to any item a baby bonds with.)

Kirra Lovey is made with a chunky yarn, and does not include safety eyes. Despite the name, it is best practice to keep them for older kids.

Both original Kirra and Lovey Kirra are raising funds for the AREPH for the month of February. $2 from each will go to the hospital.
Donate directly to the organisation here, or find out about what they do.

Last month I was able to donate $60 to the AREPH and $60 to WIRES. I sold just under 60 copies of Kirra, but rounded it up!

I did mention in my newsletter (sign up if you aren't already receiving it! - read this blog post why you should!) that one of my testers has raised over $300 auctioning the koalas she has made from the patterns, and that is quite an achievement! Congrats Sara!
