CRINKLE TAGGY TOY DIY | Sensory Crinkle Blanket for Babies | Best DIY Baby Gift | Baby Essentials

Are you or someone you love expecting a new baby? Today I’m sharing with you my favourite DIY to make for new babies. I love giving these Crinkle Taggy Toys as baby shower gifts or gifts once a new baby is born. These Crinkle Blankets are so easy to make and you can use scrap fabrics, scrap ribbons and even create the crinkle noise with a special recycling tip – you’ll have to watch to see!
Baby’s love the sensory stimulation that comes from these Baby Paper Tag Toys. They have high contrast colours, different textures and make a fun sound. Once a baby is around 8-12 weeks old they’re starting to try to grasp and this is a perfect first toy to give them to practice that skill. You’re going to love this one!
Let’s get making!

Welcome to My Mum Makes! I’ve started this channel as a creative outlet to share my sewing projects online. I’ve loved to sew since my Mum taught me as a little girl and I find it relaxing, productive and fun. I love the chance to make things for my kids, myself and our home and I want you to feel motivated to give sewing a try and get creative. I think creativity is good for us especially as Mums. We can get so stuck in our everyday repetition, but spending some me-time creating something is a great way to unwind, prioritise our needs and use our brains in a different way to the everyday. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram @mymummakes.marie to see more of what I’m up to.

* Where are you from? South Australia
* What sewing machine do you use? Janome DC2150 – would definitely recommend Janome, can’t go wrong.

    How would I go about making a cube with the crinkle paper?

    Made a nursing pillow and baby blanket for my cousin. Had a lot of large scrap material from each. Thank you, this was such a helpful video. I Loved it, was fun to make and it really tied the two pieces together. (The baby blanket was supposed to be another cover with a different theme but it was too short to get a full pattern out so I turned it into a fluffy blanket. It really didn’t match the cover at that point.)

    Just what I have been looking for, my 2nd great son arrives in September the crinkle toy is great, thank youx

    I just NOW watched your video and I am going to give it a try since I am a beginner level. I have two quick questions to ask you if you don’t mind?

    1) For my clarification, did you say that these taffy toys are NOT machine washable?

    2) I was wondering if it is okay/safe to use a dryer sheet instead of cereal plastic bags?
    I have used dryer sheets (after it was taken out of the dryer) for homemade dog and cat toys.

    Thank you for your time and sharing❣️

  8. Delilah Carbajal on November 3, 2021 at 11:37 am

    Great idea and video! Can these be washed and dried? Or flat dry best? Thank you

  9. Fly Mommy Fly on November 3, 2021 at 11:44 am

    My cousin and I are both pregnant, she is due just under 2 months before me, and we are both having girls so will make double of these haha 1 for me and 1 for her baby shower gifts

  11. Erica Smith on November 3, 2021 at 11:46 am

    Oh, it’s "Weet-Bix". No "A" in the middle? When I hear it mentioned in British shows I always thought it was Wheatabix.

  12. AvieMare on November 3, 2021 at 11:51 am

    I appreciate your videos and love your style. This video went a bit too fast for my old, slow self. Still, I got the jist of the project and will be making them for my 9th grandchild who arrived last August and my 10th grandson who will arrive this coming July.

    Thanks alot for sharing this.

  14. Stacy Walker on November 3, 2021 at 11:56 am

    Where did you purchase your crinkle material? The link is not working. Thank you

  15. Mariette Forget on November 3, 2021 at 11:57 am

    Beautiful and well made taggy blankets, thank you! If I may suggest to slow the speed when you show them so we can see them better. 🌸🌸

  16. My Mum Makes on November 3, 2021 at 11:58 am

    What is your favourite gift to give at a baby shower o r to a new baby?

  17. Hati Francisco on November 3, 2021 at 11:59 am

    Hi Mum, hope this message finds you and your family well. I just have a question, the plastic or the cereal packages you use, do they dry completely when you wash them and not put in the dryer? cause i was thinking that if they do not dry completely they might grow mold inside. Have you tried putting them in the dryer?

  18. L S on November 3, 2021 at 12:01 pm

    great video! thank u! so glad i found your channel!!

  19. Jenifer Alvarez on November 3, 2021 at 12:04 pm

    What type of fabric is the polka dot fabric? And what did you mean by high contrast fabric on one side? Also, what else can be used in the middle than the polar fleece?

  20. Meagan The Mama on November 3, 2021 at 12:04 pm

    These seem so simple! I can’t wait to make some for my baby. Thank you.

    Made it. Loved it. Thank much

  23. Cornelia B. on November 3, 2021 at 12:08 pm

    Great idea to use the cereal packaging, I need to try that. I read somewhere that these toys can be a bit of a suffocation hazard (no problem when only used supervised), so what I do is I cut a bunch of holes into the plastic and do a "breathing test". Just a little tip to be extra safe.
    Have a great day! I enjoy your videos a lot.

  24. Kiki Kenny on November 3, 2021 at 12:09 pm

    What kind of fabric did you use

  25. O Sew Hoopy on November 3, 2021 at 12:10 pm

    What fabrics do you use most for these ~ Thank you!

  26. suzette adlem on November 3, 2021 at 12:11 pm

    What material did you use that you attached the tags to?

  27. Ruby Cornista on November 3, 2021 at 12:12 pm

    Thanks for sharing this video. These are cute taggy toys. I’m afraid to sew around the pins, you made it look so easy.

  28. Anna Block on November 3, 2021 at 12:12 pm

    I love this video. Great explanation. Thanks for this tutorial.

  29. Michele De La Cruz on November 3, 2021 at 12:16 pm

    Wonderful! Have a blessed weekend everyone.

  30. Sheryl DeMott on November 3, 2021 at 12:16 pm

    Thanks for the video. I can’t wait to make one. I ordered some teething rings and thought I’d loop one of the ribbons around it. I also ordered the crinkle paper so I can’t get started on my toy today but can’t wait to make one for my grandson.

  31. Trina C on November 3, 2021 at 12:17 pm

    Thanks for sharing.

  32. Cheryl Steverson on November 3, 2021 at 12:18 pm

    please slow your video down, your taggy is wonderful but you go through all the steps way to fast for me to carefully watch how to do them.

    My mom is going to have a baby

  34. OCD for OCC on November 3, 2021 at 12:22 pm
