okay. it’s really not that hard to say five times.
but as unhard as it is to say.
it’s even unharder to make.
(i’m trying to say that this baby taggie toy is easy to make)
i was in need of a little something something to put on my baby present. (THESE canvas prints)
and it was saturday night.
and i decided to be scrappy.
it’s a great scrap buster..i hoard..everything. but ribbon especially. so it’s fantastic to get rid of random strays of ribbon.
i did a basic circle shape and pinned them all around….
i sew the ribbon around first to keep them in place.
then i added the button (i TOTALLY triple secured this sucker. i didn’t want any choking hazards) i might of even hot glued it on the back.)
then laid the other circle (right sides in) and pinned it around.
sew around leaving an opening to turn it right sides out. then i stuffed it with a couple walmart bags and the leftover scraps from cutting the circle. it’s soft and has a bit of crinkle sound.
it’s cute and easy and i didn’t have to buy one thing.
if you are bored you should pinterest baby taggie toys. there are sooo many cute little ideas out there!!!like…………..
just to name a few.
I’m going to have to show this to my husband and say “See what I can do with all of those 2-4 inch piece of ribbon I’ve been saving?!” =D I also hold onto little scraps of….everything. Oh wait. I forgot I’m a hoarder. =)
It brought back memories of my using my stash to make baby gifts. It seemed everyone I knew or almost knew was having a baby and I didn’t have the $$ to buy so I made. My specialty was ugly dolls for the kids to chew. I called them ugly but they weren’t creepy ugly, just, um, rustic I suppose. I stuffed them just how you did, leftovers and something that crinkled. One mom told me a few years later that her kid loved the ‘ugly’ doll, so that was nice to hear.
I’m glad you addressed the button…I was concerned, like did you like the kid? Good idea for gluing it also.
Now I know how I can make one for the newest crop of babies at church. Thanks for the idea!
What a cute idea! My son’s older now and wouldn’t find much interest in it, but I will definitely keep this in mind for friends or any future babies we have. Thanks!!!

I was wondering if the toys are washer and dryer safe because of the walmart bags?
I probably wouldn’t put it in the dryer!!
