Teething Cuddler

Don't you just love those little tag Cuddlers?  Me too, but they are so expensive! So I decided to make my own but to put my own spin on them and add some teething toys on! These are super easy and take less than an hour.

Materials needed:
2 14X14 squares in 2 different textured fabrics. (I used a furry fleece and a long john material)
16 peices of  5 inch ribbon
3 teethers
sewing machine

First you want to just cut all of your ribbon and your fabric to size.
Next take one fabric square and pin the ribbons around the outside, toward the middle, 4 on each side. Make sure to attach the teethers onto the ribbons now. Also make sure that you sew them to the front of the fabric, not the back.

Now take your zig-zag stitch and go all around the outside. We will go over the ribbons multiple times to ensure that they don't come off in your little one's mouth!
Now take your other square and pin it on top of the ribbon square, wrong sides together.  Make sure all ribbons and toys are tucked inside.
Now use a straight stitch and sew around the outside edges.  Make sure to leave a hole big enough to fit the toys through!!
Flip the toy right side out.
And once again sew around the edges of the entire toy to close hole and to get one more stitch through the ribbons.
And now give it to your little lamb so he can slobber all over and LOVE it!!
