Cute Baby Toys Tutorial!

Hi all,

I have really been getting into sewing lately and even though I still have no sewing machine...I've been tearing it up with some sewing fun...HAND sewing that is!

Here are a few of my first handy-works...not too shabby if I do say so myself.

The yellow and denim toys are show cased on SSB's Mad Skills Monday! Head over to check it out and participate! Its gonna be fun!

Here's how to make the larger loopy ball...lots of fun for you to make and baby to play with!

Here's what you need:

material (I also used some scrap felt), scissors, needle, thread, and lots of ribbon!

Cut out a pattern in the shape of a football and cut your desired fabric. You'll need 6 sides.

Pin your pieces, wrong sides together, with the ribbon in place (in between your fabric). Keep the ends of your ribbon on the outside so it will loop when turned right side out. Stitch together.

Finished stitching all the way around, turn right side out and stuff! Stitch up your hole and you're all done! Ready for playtime!

See my tutorial for a loopy blankie here!! Don't wanna make it? Contact me for a custom order!

Felt Accessory Tutorial!

Phew! It's been a while since I've been poor kiddo's were sick :-( But all better now!

Here is my first tutorial! Yah! I'm gonna show you how to make Felt Accessories! See a few here...
Here's what you need:

felt (any coordinating colors)
needle and thread

Then, choose an accessory to make...a cute head band or a pin...I chose to make a cute hair tie.

Cut the felt in your desired shape.
You can do a flower, circles...whatever you want. I chose to do a cute little teardrop design...

Now sew it secure with a coordinating button. I chose to use a bright blue thread for a punch of color...(sorry pic is a little fuzzy)

Cut a little rectangle of scrap felt and set warm up your glue gun!

Glue down your tie (or whatever you choose to make).

Add a little more glue and place the rectangle from scrap over your accessory to secure it. Be sure to tuck around the edges tightly.

Let dry and all done! Now you have a super cute accessory to accent any outfit!

Happy Crafting!
