Crinkle Taggie Baby Soother – Tutorial


ok then, remember these noisy toys?

In a previous post I showed you how to insert the jingle bells into the taggie plush πŸ™‚ 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 7×7 inch fabric squares
  • 1 7×7 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
  • Pins

Mark one of your pieces of fabric like this, marking your 1/4 inch seam allowance and then dividing the rest of your square into 2x2inch grid, this is to help you place your ribbons.

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 πŸ™‚

turn everything right side out, top stitch and you’re done!! instant baby joy! (or I hope!!)
