Baby Tag Toy DIY

Baby Tag Toy DIY

I actually made three of these in one sitting they are that easy to  make. Two for my cousin who is having twins (see Forest Friends Baby Shower) and one cousin who had a little one last summer. I know of a few more babies this spring and summer so I imagine I’ll be making more of these here shortly.

Supplies needed:

fabric (fat quarters or scraps work well)

crinkle material (optional – I used a clean cereal bag)

Ribbon

basic sewing supplies

How to:

Start by cutting your fabric and crinkle material, I chose 5″x5″, you really could make it larger or smaller. Also cut your ribbon – I went with 4″ pieces folded over to 2″ pieces.

Create a sandwich with your fabric and ribbon. Fabric right sides together with the ribbon between the two, add crinkle on top of sandwich.

 

Sandwich like this!

 

Next, sew all the way around your square, leaving an opening (~3″) to turn the project right side out.


 

Trim your corners to easily turn the fabric.

 

Stitch the opening closed once you’ve turned the fabric and top stitch 1/4″ all the way around.

 

I added chains to the gifts so they can be attached to carseats or strollers.
