Some things never change. Little kids always love to put their toys to bed. With this beloved activity in mind, I decided to revisit the original Wrap-Me-Up Puppy from my book, Itty-Bitty Toys. I often bring this toy with me when I teach and the students in my classes fall in love with the sleeping puppy wrapped up in a blanket. I have always wanted to rewrite this pattern in a seamless version and in a heavier weight yarn. Plus, I’ve always wanted to add some new friends to the mix. Now we have a Wrap-Me-Up Kitten, Lamb and Piglet to go along with the Puppy. The more friends to say “night-night” to, the merrier!
