A Waste of Time Knitting

So I found this beautiful, yellow, fluffy, super soft yarn that has now been recalled:
http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/2015/Spinrite-Recalls-Bernat-Tizzy-Yarn/

Before it was recalled though, I made a warm cover for Darth Monkey.
It wasn't even made long enough for more than a few pictures before the recall.  I've been trying to figure out how to salvage it because if any child is going to hurt herself with it, it will be my monkey.  I may quilt it onto a piece of knit with the quilting tight enough to capture all the yarn, but I'm not even sure it is possible to be salvaged.  Such a shame.

I basically made a rectangle twice the width of Darth Monkey's shoulders (top) and the length a little longer than her waist (side).  Then I zigzagged with the sewing machine on the top with the piece folded in half from the sides inwards, leaving enough room for her head.

I'll be making another one, but probably not until it cools again considering that we are already in the 80s everyday here now.

    1. Yes, it is very warm and comfy. So much so that she was wearing around the house like a security blanket.
