Happy Friday! I hope you all had a good week. :)
I have been chomping at the bit to make something special for my baby..
Not knowing if it is a boy or girl yet is really driving me crazy, though, as I don't want everything that I make to have to be gender neutral. (I Do love yellow, but once you find out it's a boy/girl you kind of want to make things with that in mind ;)
So I have been
A few weeks ago I began looking for teethers, squeekers, rattlers and plastic crinkle paper to use in my DIY fun..
Boy, did I find it!
I requested permission to name the company and I've gotten no response, so I will wait on that :(
Anyway.. I was feeling the itch last week and threw caution to the wind and decided I would make a teether/toy cuddle blanket.
It needs improvement but it turned out really cute!
(Notice the cute fabric? I won it in an awesome giveaway and I am so excited I finally got to use a bit of it!)
What do you think?
I think it was a pretty good first try!
I just love that teething ring!
If you look close you can see that 2 corners have bumps.
One of those is a push squeaker and the other is a small round rattle toy.
Also, throughout the entire "blanket" is the plastic crinkle paper.
This is one loud toy! haha - Perfect!
The back is minky, it is soo soft!
The sewing needs a bit of work, but I decided that baby wouldn't be looking too closely at that and so it was still useable. lol
I am going to do a tutorial on this cute little thing and I can't wait to share it with you all!
