Hello, StarSunflower Studio Readers!

How’s everyone doing?

It’s FALL-icious around here in Northern Indiana.

I love all the changing colors!

Anyways, let’s get down to business…..

ha! I sounded so official for a second 😉

My name is Jill and I’m from Jaihart just lovely designs.

I love to do quick and simple projects.Here’s a toy I made I thought I’d share with you

My husband and I went out the other night and my Mother in law watched my children.  I have a 2 year old son and a 5 month old daughter. When we got home my mother in law said that my daughter loved chasing around the wipes package. It was a Target brand wipe package, really plasticky sounding.  She said that she just loved the noise.  So my wheels started turning and I thought I should make my daughter a toy somehow using plastic. I forgot about it until we were in the living room and she started to do it again.  We have a container of washcloths in the living room as well…  for spit up purposes. I decided that the two should go together. Here’s what I came up with:

My daughter just loves it!

It makes the scrunchy sound she likes,

along with different textures,

so she’s just in heaven!

If you don’t have a child of your own, they make great gifts!

If you’re interested in a tutorial follow along!

1. Gather supplies: plastic bag, 2 washcloths, pins, and ribbon.  I just chose to use 3 ribbons, but you can use as many ribbons as you like. It would be so cute to add more ribbons around the whole washcloth!

2. Use your washcloth as a template and cut the plastic bags in a square.  Then pin everything down.  Put your ribbons in place, pin them down along with your plastic bags, and the washcloth on the other side.

3. Sew all the pieces together. The plastic bag will be sticking out from the side, it will tear off easily or you could use scissors to trim the plastic.

 4. Enjoy!

This is the way that I made this toy.  I’m sure there are a million ways to make a toy like this, so if you have any suggestions, let me know!  I’m just a beginner sewer and would love any tips!

Have a great day!
