The author's son, who likes to call himself “Flufy,” has Cozy down to a science. Wherever he happens to be, if there’s a couch with a blanket, he’ll crawl underneath and make himself right at home.

The project in this ebook is the exact blanket the author made for Flufy. This is a great do-together project, if the recipient is old enough to follow a few simple color-choice rules.
