Freddy the Faun Baby Deer Lovey it’s a quick and easy to make security blanket that compliments perfectly the 3in1 Woodland Deer Baby Blanket and creates a perfect matching set for a baby’s nursery.
Need a last minute Christmas gift? This adorable deer lovey takes just a couple of days to make and does not require a lot of yarn thanks to the granny hexagon pattern used to make it.
This baby deer lovey is made in warm shades of brown and cream and will make a wonderful gender neutral present for any little boy or girl.
I used the hexagon motif to create the white spots a deer would have on its back, and it almost looks like white snowflakes. How cute is that?
If you want to make it even more Christmassy, sew a red nose on it instead of the dark brown used in the pattern.
