Mom came over one day last year to show me a project she was working on to use up some leftover fleece. The simple doll is called a "burrito baby" and she brought a mock up, a sample to get my thoughts (I love that she wants my advice when truly, her wisdom and knowledge far exceed mine). Loaf became instantly attached.
No matter that it was meant for someone else, hair was still to be applied, and Loaf already had a plethora of other dolls she knew grandma had made the perfect doll for her and she was not giving it up. She cried and cried when I handed mom the doll as she was leaving. Of course Grandma quickly gave it back, Loaf with tears is hard to resist. It has been a favorite ever since.
Loaf is so pleased to show off burrito baby fresh from the laundry.
Burrito baby (no other name was required, she immediately called it Burrito) has endured more washings than one might imagine, especially with kisses like this which are not usually as clean. Burrito has been literally dragged everywhere and it a treasure to be found at the bottom of the toy bin or under her bed.
I might have to make a few to donate to the Humanitarian center, if Loaf loves it this much I can only imagine the joy it could bring another baby girl. Who knew a simple piece of fleece could bring such joy!
