Taggie infant toys-Fun and Easy

Happy Monday!  I was cruising around some of my favorite sites this morning and came across this cute little goody.  I have seen these little "taggies" made commercially and always thought that I would make some the next time I was invited to a baby shower.  Babies love the different textures of the ribbon and trim loops.

    As so often happens with me and sewing projects, I had forgotten about these until I saw this site and now I have two sweet new twin nephews to spoil so I hopped to it and whipped up a couple this afternoon.  The instructions are on Cucicucicoo.  Lisa, the creator, is a dedicated upcycler with loads of great ideas.  
    I like the fact that this taggie toy has a crinkly paper in the center so baby will have lots of stimulation.  The best part is that Lisa uses cereal bags for the crinkly center because they are food safe and don't have anything in them that could harm the little ones if they chomp on them.
    I followed the directions just as they are on the site....something that I don't always do...because they were excellent.  If you would like to make some for the little darlings in your life, click HERE.
You will love crinkling these clever toys.  Here are some that I made.  I used soft fleece on one side and cotton print on the other.

Wouldn't these be great for baby's Easter Basket?  Enjoy!

Thanks for linking to my project, Barbara! I love your taggie toys! I'm sure your nephews will love them! :) Lisa
p.s. If you use Flickr, why not post your pictures to the Cucicucicoo Creations group? That way more people can see them!
