DIY AwesomsauceAnyone know of a DIY Addicts group? (No joiners, no quitters). Guilty party, hand-up, right here. I know I’m not the only one. We’re flux in a heavy trend of all that is DIY right now. Arguably, Pinterest is the leading cause of this, but I would venture to say that the creation of Pinterest was inspired by the DIY sub-culture.

Us DIY’ers? We are taking over the world; one recipe, garden terrarium, anything mason jar related, baby gear tutorial at a time.

I’ve curated this sweet little round of baby toy tutorials for the crafty mommas out there. These are all pretty easy and no one has to be a pro on the sewing machine to accomplish these projects. Enjoy!

DIY: 12 Simple (Free Tutorials!) Baby Toy Projects

Fabric Beach Balls

A relatively simple tutorial, with lovely pictures. My 11 month old adores playing with soft balls of various size, contrasting colour, pattern and texture. You could add folded ribbon to make tags, and/or rattle or jingle bell inserts. At least that's what I plan on doing.
