Mr. Lovie's niece, Kayleigh, is turning 1 on September 9th. Kayleigh and her mom and dad live several hours away, but they were in town on Labor Day so we were able to celebrate her birthday together. We had a wonderful time. I love sweet baby cuddles.
Of course I had to make Kayleigh a little toy.
Like most babies, Kayleigh loooves crinkle noises and these little taggies you find on a lot of baby toys. I checked out this tutorial before I made it to make sure my idea on how to make it wasn't crazy. :) One side is regular cotton fabric and the other side is a thicker fleece. This is seriously the easiest baby gift ever. You've got to try it.
For the crinkle I used really cellophane, or really loud plastic. I couldn't really find cellophane in the gift wrap section in Target, so I just bought a package of gift bags and the plastic packaging on that was perfectly loud and crinkly. It's layered between the two fabrics.
Happy 1st Birthday, Kayleigh!
