Before I had kids I used to think the warning labels
on plastic bags "this is not a toy" were so ridiculous.
Who would ever give a baby a bag?
But then I had kids and I understood.
Babies like things that crinkle.
So here is a way to make something cute and crinkly
without the warning labels.
(I am using a wipes package, but clear gift wrap
or microwave popcorn wrappers are also nice and noisy.)
Cut six 4 inch pieces of ribbon.
Pin folded ribbons along the edges with the
folds towards the center of the flannel.
Be sure to leave enough room to turn inside out.
(I started sewing right before the aqua ribbon
and stopped after the brown satin one.)
Tuck in raw edges between the ribbons.
Topstitch around entire square, making sure to close the opening.
I obviously do not have any.
Zig zag is as fancy as I get.
She gives it a big, drooly five stars.
*I forgot to add that I have washed this dozens and dozens of times with the normal laundry and it is holding up just fine. No purpose in having baby things that are complicated to clean, right?
