Melly Teddy Ragdoll Graduate Grace

The Melly Teddy Ragdoll Graduate Grace is a fabulous cross between a lovey blanket and a soft toy and perfect to crochet for babies and small children.  They are fun and easy to make and are soft and snugly, perfect for cuddling and great yarn busters. 

The pattern includes instructions to make a BOY GRADUATE. 

This pattern was designed especially for Grace and in honour of all the other graduates of 2020 who will not be able to attend their own Graduation Ceremony.

When I was a little girl, I had a Bunny Ragdoll that literally went everywhere with me.  My dad used to call it Melly’s Teddy.  I designed my first Melly Teddy about 4 years ago, making a sleepy bunny for my little girl.  Friends saw it, liked it and ordered them from me, and eventually I took the plunge and wrote a pattern for the bunny.  I released my first Melly Teddy Ragdoll “Sleepy Bunny” in June 2019, followed quickly by “Eliah Ellie”, “Rainbow Unicorn”, “Snowman Family”, “Giant Panda Bear”, “Fireman Fred”, Bonnie & Clyde Horse and the Mermaids.

Graduate Grace is the 9th member of the Melly Teddy Ragdoll Family.
