Another favourite homeschooling blogger of mine, Lisa at 5 Orange Potatoes, designed these adorable Get Well Gremlins for her daughters when they were down with the flu recently. They are little cuddlies with a pocket for holding a cotton ball with essential oils that help to soothe or calm cold and flu symptoms. I thought they were such a good idea for the winter season ahead, that I wanted to share them with all of you (and I am making some myself!). Lisa has kindly offered a free downloadable pattern and instructions on how to make them. The picture below is of one of her finished Gremlins.
She made hers from thrifted sweaters, but I decided to make mine from scratch (mostly because I felt like knitting and had nothing to knit!). It also means I can make little Gremlins that will match the boy's bedroom decor (these also happen to be their favourite colours!).
