DIY Baby Soother/Blankie

Happy Friday, everyone. I hope you all are doing well. I've been working on a few small projects for the baby, one of which I'm going to share today! I love the little baby soothers that have a small stuffed animal head with a blanket draping from it. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find one I really like. I decided to just try to make my own.

I received a set of 2 fox stuffed animals at the baby shower (thanks, Deb!). There is a mama and a baby fox, and they're from Ikea. Anywho, I figured out that the baby fox would be the perfect size to make into a soother! I didn't want to decapitate baby fox, so I just incorporated all of him. 
It was such a simple project. You could make one of these with any small stuffed animal! 

Here's what I did:
1. Sewed a small blanket out of fabric scraps. I used a piece of baby snuggle fabric from Joann's, and a piece of satin. I've heard and learned that baby's love satin. I basically used the same method Kayla and I used for our larger baby blankets.
2. Using a needle and quilting thread, I hand stitched the blanket together in a little bundle on one of the corners. I then stitched that to the inside of the fox's paws.

Super cute, right?
I sure hope our baby boy likes it as much as I do. :)

Do you guys have any tutorials for easy baby sewing projects? I'm pretty much glued to the couch or a chair at this point, and I need things to keep me busy. Share your projects in the comments, and I will definitely come check them out!

Have an awesome day,
