A Venture

I decided to use my craftiness and see if I can earn a little extra cash. So here is the product - Snuggle Tuggers - a tag security blanket. It measures 12'' x 12'' excluding the ribbons. There are 5 coordinating ribbon combinations per side, looped in various ways, some doubled, curly cues, etc., the ribbons have different textures and are triple stitched for security. Material used: front - designer 100% cotton, back - minky that is so soft to the touch.
This would be a great babyshower gift! I made one for Harper and he loves it - I am sure any baby would get hours of entertainment out of it.
Here's the kind I have made so far, it is unisex, the minky can be orange instead of blue. The price is $16 plus shipping, which I cannot imagine would be more than $2.50. I am in the process of setting up an Etsy account and a new blog account, until then, if you wish to order, contact me at masha_gul@hotmail.com.

Masha, I am trying to figure out what these are. I guess I am ignorant because I don't have any kids. They look really cool.

To answer your question Jules. It's a little blanket that functions as a toy. Most of the times when you give a baby some kind of plush toy, they end up playing with the tag on it. This blanket has different kinds of 'tags' of different textures/colors/combinations that should be stimulating for the baby. I made Harper one and he really likes to play with it, tug on the tags, chew on them, etc. I hope that answers your question.
