Homemade taggie toy

Ok, first, I can't believe it's November already!! I'm glad because I LOVE this time of year, but so extremely sad because Austin's first year is going by so ridiculously fast. So very fast. Right after the holidays I have to start planning his 1st birthday. :(

So when Jackson was born taggie toys (which is what I call those toys with tags all over them- I don't know what they're really called) were all the rage in the baby toy world. I didn't understand why they were so popular because Jackson didn't have a tag affection. Austin, however, LOVES tags. The boy can find the tag on anything and he will chew and suck on every tag he can find all day long! Finally, I understand the obsession over taggie toys and I set out to find Austin some cute taggie toys. I went to every store around and I could not find one single taggie toy. What happened!? 3 years ago I couldn't go anywhere and not have taggie toys on every toy corner, and now they are no where to be found. Well, Austin still needed a taggie toy to feed his tag hunger, so I decided to make one myself with a little felt and ribbon. The whole project only took me a few hours and I hand stitched the whole thing.

Just as I thought, he loves it!!


  1. We got one of these as a gift for Henry, and he loves it, too! It's great for during sacrament meeting because it doesn't make noise. We call it the tag rag at our house :) This one is super cute with the personalization!

  2. Thanks Amy! It's crazy how much they love tags. Jackson never had this fascination.

  3. So... can I place an order for one for Kaden? :)
