This is part 2 of the Santa Baby Layette Set. I did not have enough of the yarn that I made the Santa hat and the diaper cover with and it was on back order, so I improvised.  I bought new yarn!  As you can imagine, it was quite a sacrifice…who doesn’t like to shop for yarn!  I found a great deal at Hobby Lobby, all the yarn was 30% off, so I did not feel too bad.  Any chunky yarn and fuzzy/furry yarn should work.
