How to make a baby taggie toy

Elliott loves the sound of crunching plastic. Every time I open a packet of something, he quickly looks my way. He also loves his taggie toy from his Aunt and Uncle and so I thought I could combine the two and make a baby taggie and crunch toy in one!

What you will need:

Assorted ribbons
2 x pieces of material in the size of your choice
1 x piece of plastic e.g. old baby wipes pack
thread

Baby taggie toy instructions

  1. Firstly I got some different patterned ribbon and cut them into 8 x 15 centimetre lengths.

  3. I cut two pieces of material into my preferred size square and faced the right sides towards eachother.

  4. For the crunching part of the taggie, I used an old baby wipes package and cut it down to the same size as the squares of material. I put the plastic packaging on top of the two pieces of material, although in hindsight, I should have put it on the bottom of the two material squares to make it easier to pin the ribbons in between.

  6. I folded the ribbons in half and placed them on the edge of the square, between the two pieces of material, with the fold of the ribbon facing inwards. I placed the plastic on top while firmly keeping the ribbon in place and pinned all three layers together through the ribbon. As mentioned above, I should have put the plastic on the bottom so it was easier to keep the ribbon in place.

    Here you can see the three pieces secured together through the ribbons.

  8. Sew around the edges making sure you stitch over the ribbons at least 3 times because babies will chew and tug at the ribbon. Remember to leave a hole so that you can pull the material and plastic through to be right side up. Make sure the hole is large enough for the plastic and the material.
