Chuck’s mom is fabulous at sewing. She asked me to keep my eye open for ideas for her to make things for Maddie. I suggested a Taggies blanket. Maddie is obsessed with tags on her toys. So Linda made these for her.
This little one has bells inside.
Which made me want to try making one. This is how mine turned out.
I actually made an identical one to the one above for a friend, then thought it was so cute that I made another for Maddie. For this one, there is a rattle inside it that I took out of an old stuffed animal I had when I was a kid.
Then I thought….these would make cute gifts for some other friends. So I made some for a couple friends of mine who just had babies. This is how they turned out.
And this one, I took pictures of, but I hadn’t sewn it together yet. So this one has pins in it.
I put buttons inside them so they make noise. Maddie loves hers, so I hope my friends’ kids like them when they are a little older. I think these are going to be a go-to gift for me to give to new babies!
Now, Chuck’s mom also made some balls for Maddie with tags on them. She is already playing with them and chewing on them. How cool are these?
And she even has another project in the making for her and I can’t wait to share it with you!
