Something about the birth of a baby just makes me want to sew. Maybe it's because I really got into sewing just after my son was born. Maybe it's because sewing for baby is quick and easy. Maybe it's because I know there won't be any more babies in this house, but I just love sewing these little projects.
While I love sewing little dresses and shirts, there's something wonderful about sewing that special toy that the child will snuggle and carry around for years to come. My baby boy is 8 and flat puppy is still his favourite toy to cuddle. He's looking well-loved now and has been through the wash countless times, but that rag is one of the most precious items in our home.
