The birth of Flavigham

My first niece is here! But she is in Bombay thousands of miles away so I wanted to make her a buddy that would do in my absence. A small playmate that would calm her and tell her bedtime stories just as I would have if I were around. A beast pillow I saw on Etsy gave me my flash of inspiration.
I had some organic merino yarn in complimentary colours which I used in a stripy combination.

Two sides of the body and some limbs later I had the bare bones of Flavigham.

This jazzy sleep buddy then got an internal structural lining made from handloom voile material from my stash

I then filled his viscera with organic baby cotton and some lovely home grown and dried lavender.

Now stuffed to the brim with sleep friendly lavender, I attached his limbs so he could do a little dance…

…but Flavigham was so stuffed with lavender that no sooner was he alive he fell asleep!

A perfect little buddy for the cutest little girl.
