The other day I said I'd show you the toy I made for Kyle. So, here it is-- a little taggy cube, made from inspiration I found at this site. Camille's blog is a treat for the eyes and is full of quilty motivation. She chose to quilt her squares before she sewed them together to form the cube. I didn't. I just used six 5" squares from one of my favorite fabric lines--Pampered Pooch by Moda--stitched together as is.
The whole idea is that babies love tags, thus the tags of various textures sewn into every seam. For Kyle's I used satin ribbon, ric rac, grosgrain ribbon, elastic, velcro, and velvet ribbon. And true to form, Kyle took to it like a duck to water. Have I told you he's a fast learner?
I had so much fun making this that I grabbed up another set of squares, cut some more ribbons and ric rac, and started another one. Is there a baby in your life who might enjoy a cute little taggy cube made from my favorite vintage children's prints? If so, leave a comment and I'll enter you in a drawing to win the second one.
