For those of y’all that saw my other, full sized car blanket (find that pattern here) I mentioned that I would be making a smaller version of it for a special friends little boy who loved the other blanket that I made for his soon arriving brothers.

Well, I just finished it and I love it! I know that her little boy will love it because she told me that he has still been mentioning the other blanket and was hoping that his little brother will share it with him ❤️ ❤️ ❤️

I decided to make his smaller because I know that he has a smaller, greenish blanket that he carries a lot with him and I’ve seen it multiple times. I’m hoping that he will take a liking to this one and wag it around with him.
