Dom's favourite toy from babyhood has been "Pigly". We bought it when we found I was pregnant - one of those lovely soft things you can't resist when the hormones are rushing about.
Charlie's favourite is "Snugs", a square of soft chenille with satin and grosgrain ribbon tags attached to the sides. I bought it when he was a baby from ELC in Chadstone and it cost around $40.
Now, to be fair, the ribbons are all custom made and there is appliqué and they are actually called "Taggies"
I decided to have a burl at making some "Snugs" of my own
This is my first take on it. She wanted a New Zealand theme seeing the poor little bugger will be inundated with all things Ocker all his life (sorry, lovely Australian friends, we love you and your beautiful country, but there is so much green and gold)
This one has a Rainbow Theme
They make pretty nice gifts for a baby and are dead simple and cheap to make.
