Have a baby?
Know a baby?
If so, you might have a new project to start on.
Go ahead, let your kiddo (or a kiddo you know) chew these to death. It won’t hurt a thing. And if they get oozy and stained……pop them in the washing machine. Presto…all clean.
Start by sewing the strips together in half, lengthwise.
Then turn them right side out……
…………..and start stuffing them with the batting. You’ll want it to be full but not too full. You still want the ring to be semi-flexible. Use a pencil to shove it down in there. (Be patient with this part. It helps to bunch up pieces of the batting and then shove them in.)
Make sure that the batting doesn’t go all the way to the ends. Sew one end closed, about an 1/8 inch away from the edge.
On the other end, fold it down about a 1/4 of an inch to the inside.
Then slide (or maneuver) the sewn end into the folded end. Sew along the fold.
Then do the same with your next ring but before closing the ring, slide it through your first ring and then fasten it closed.
Attach as many rings together as you’d like and toss it on over to the baby.
And let that baby munch away.
And no worries, I have run out of time, but I’ll show you how to make the cloth blocks tomorrow. Stay tuned………
