DIY Baby Toys: Gifts for my new Nephew!

I love DIY projects and I'm always looking to challenge myself with creating something new.  Handmade gifts are the best and these 2 DIY projects were fairly easy!  

 I enjoy sewing and while I'm not very good at it yet (I like straight sewing lines!) I decided to try out some new projects for my newborn nephew, Nate.  My sister just had a baby boy (first grandson in the family....lots of little girls so having a boy is pretty exciting!!)  I searched out Pinterest for some easy beginner sewing toys to make for him.

First is the taggie blanket toy.  This is a small square toy with ribbons around the edges.  I knew I'd be able to make this one as it's all straight lines and pretty easy.  I found some awesome blue minky fabric and also used some lime green cotton. (the nursery colors are blue and green)  I also used some cellophane inside the square so it makes lots of crunchy noises when played with.  I had been hoarding my StarWars ribbon for quite some time, waiting for the perfect project to use it on (my sisters hubby is a big fan!) So why not use it on this cute toy for their new son!

  I also wanted to make a stuffed animal.  I knew it couldn't be too complicated as my sewing skills are at a beginner level.  I found a cute dino pattern and tutorial that I thought I might be able to pull off.  I think it turned out pretty cute!
