I made this little guy using the leftover fleece I bought for milo’s halloween costume.
And I have so much ribbon laying around from my card-making days.

After I was done I wanted to make a ton more! Its was really easy and super fun. And sewing with that microfleece is like butt-a! I have a little more left, so I’m going to figure out something else to make with it. This might just be my g0-to baby gift for the future…

I found the tutorial and pattern here.   The only thing I would do different next time is make the ribbon a little shorter. She suggests 6 inches; i made mine 5 and they were still a little long when i folded them over… But otherwise I think it turned out really cute!

Fourth of july is THIS WEEK! what?!!! How did that happen?  We have plans to check our our neighborhood parade, so I whipped up this fun little wand for milo to wave around.

And added bonus – after the holiday use it as a cat toy 🙂
You will need:
1/4 inch dowel rods
red white and blue thin ribbon
yarn
screw hook

Cut your ribbon to size. You want them to be nice and long so when you wave the wand they twirl around.
Screw your hook into the top of the dowel rod.
Loop your ribbon through the screw hook and tie.
Wave around!
