Crochet Mama and Baby Manatee

I recently tried crochet stuffed animals for a friend who’s expecting in August. I know one of the popular homemade gifts at a baby shower is a crochet or knit blanket so I wanted to stick with homemade but go a different route. I thought about asking my friend what her favorite animal is but once I saw the pattern for a mama and baby manatee it was decided. It did take me three tries to get the pattern started right but from then on it was so simple! This was definitely one of my favorite crochet projects. :)

What do you think?
