My 8 month old nephew visited early this week and had a fondness for tags. I can see why babies really enjoy the Taggie brand toys available. During work one day this week I drew up very simple design/ directions for a new small toy for him. It was super easy and I finished it in one sitting after work. I used a very soft brushed cotton as the body, tucked the center once I finished stuffing it and finished it off with a small patch of felt embroidered in place. He'll get to play with it next Monday when he travels back through the area on their way back home from vacation.
I also want to share a new blog with everyone. Lately I have been having some great new people stop by and comment and most recently LollyChops has shared this free template along with several others.
She has a thing for sewing, beads, and birds. Something most of us have in common. :) I signed up for her Pay It Forward offer. I have seen this all around blog land and finally decided to play along. And I announce this because I am required to, well, pay it forward. So look forward to an upcoming post about that.
