In a previous post I showed you how to insert the jingle bells into the taggie plush :-) Now I'm going to show you how to make the Crinkle Taggie Soother.
The Internet has told me that babies love things that crinkle, and things with ribbon loops/tags, and this is my response! err... unfortunately I have no way of verifying this information at this point since my lazy baby still isn't here! and even when (s)he does arrive, I hear tell that they don't do much except cry, sleep, feed and wee for the first few days.
Anyhow, click here for the printable -step by step tutorial - for how to make a Crinkle Taggie Baby Soother!!
Click the read more link to see some work in progress pics and take a quick tour of the construction process:
You will need:
- 2 7x7 inch fabric squares
- 1 7x7 inch square of cereal bag plastic
- 3 different types of ribbon, each one cut into
- 4 lengths of around 4 inches each.
- Sewing machine
- Method of fabric marking
Pin your ribbons in place like this:
baste your ribbons in place (on right side) , baste the plastic to the other piece of fabric (to the WRONG side) and then layer everything like this (right sides facing) and sew :-)
turn everything right side out, top stitch and you're done!! instant baby joy! (or I hope!!)
