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.

This pattern is worked in the round from the nose to the rump, with ears and limbs worked separately and sewn on. The fleece is also worked separately and fits over the body.
