My daughter loves crackly bags. I mean LOVES them. I would let her play with them in a pinch for entertainment but I was always afraid of her hurting herself or digesting strange substances or something.
So I came up with this!
A Taggie Crinkly Blankie!
I used a Hershey's kisses and a butterscotch chip bag and cut the rough edges off.
Then my fabric I wanted to use was too thin so I cut out 4 10 inch squares 2 of white for the inside and 2 of pink for the outside.
I sewed them together somewhat like a pillow but in the corners, I added a little scrap of ribbon folded over to make the "tags."
I turned the whole thing right side out.
I left about 3 inches on one side open so I could stick the bags inside then smooth them out on the inside of the "pillow/blankie"
To keep the bags in place so it could be washed, I sewed an X through the whole thing then along the sides which also sewed my hole shut at the same time.
Emily LOVED it! I'm really glad that I added the ribbons because she probably wouldn't have figured out the crinkly aspect without them. Oh and guess what! One side smells like chocolate and the other of butterscotch! Gotta start my little girl out right!! :0)
The only thing is, you do not want to throw this in the dryer - I don't know if it would melt the plastic inside or not, but I don't want to find out!
By the way, this is actually her Christmas present but that's the beauty of babies, you can give them their presents more than once and it's still just as exciting!
