{Reader Tutorial} Sunshine for babies – handmade baby toys


Deby of So Sew Easy says:

Don’t we always joke that if you buy a child a toy, it spends more time playing with the box than with what’s inside. Somewhere along the line, moms started to notice that babies enjoyed the feel of the labels on their toys, and the ribbons, and so those started to become a feature of the toy itself. Such as the satin binding on the comfort-blanket.

This simple template and tutorial shows you how to create a soft and snuggly basic baby toy with ribbons.
