My Buck-a-roo LOVES tags... and crinkly noises. His wipes package is his favorite toy... go figure.

What a great idea! Thanks for the tutorial! Its great making baby toys ourselves, then we know what's in them!

Amy Hodges said...

Such a great up-cycle project. My daughter loves those blankets.

Tiffany said...

I love to make these using fleece! I make mine 18" square and put 5 ribbons per side cutting them 3" long. No crinkly inside but I might have to steal your idea! These are a HUGE hit too! Super fast and easy to make in a pinch. :) Great job!

I made one of these for our baby for Christmas, but I didn't think about adding the wrapper for the crinkle effect. What a great idea! Thanks for sharing.

Stephanie Lynn said...

My goodness - I can't tell you how many of these I actually purchased when my little guy was 'little'. Great tutorial - thanks for sharing!!

Such a cute idea--I love the insert idea. I think this would make a great pet toy, maybe in a little smaller version! Thanks for sharing,

So cute. I might make one for our friends that just had a baby. Thanks for the idea

Andy Porter said...

My mil made one of these for one of my babies with ribbons on it, I really like the idea of making it crinkly too! Baby toys are so expensive and this is something that they could grip for a long time! Thanks for the idea!

Have a great weekend;)

This is adorable. You are very clever. This kind of toy was my boys' favorite one when they were teeny. I saved them with their baby stuff!

Thanks for the tutorial!
This is my first time visiting. I found you from SNS at FJI!

Very cute! How do you wash it with the plastic bag inside?

free indeed said...

I was wondering what you used! Good idea! Does it wash and crinkle still? I'll have to try one and see.

Lacey said...

I made this blanket without the crinkly stuff for a "sleepy blanket." Both of my girls have a snuggly toy that they sleep with, so I just made one for a friend that had a baby this week. I REALLY wish I had taken good pictures because I'd like to blog about it and like to your tutorial. It was PERFECT! Thanks for sharing!

Whitney said...

How does this wash with the wrapper in it?

Can you wash this?
Thanks for this fantastic tutorial!

Alyssa Frantz said...

I was wondering how this washes up? Can you put it in the washer and dryer with the "crinkle" in it?
