Infant Puzzle Ball and other bits....

After a long break I'm hopefully finally back.  I'm finally starting to feel human again after two weeks of solid coughing.  Poor L is on spring break and I've been completely useless.
Anyhow here is my first "baby stuff" post.  How exciting.  First off I have to mention one of my new favourite blogs.  Little Red Farm has been such a wealth of information and inspiration with tons of tutorials.  If you have an infant or toddler be sure to check it out.

The first baby project my mom and I made were these Montessori infant puzzle balls.  Not only are they cool to look at but have little hand holds for the baby to grasp.  We used the tutorials from Little Red Farm and The Secret of Childhood.
I have to say I do not sew and would never have attempted these without the help of my mother but they are fun to make and the results are stunning.

We also made this little ribbon blanket.  The ribbons are all different textures and the blanket is made out of lovely soft fleece.  So super easy to make.  I cut out all the ribbon pieces and two squares of material and then my mom sewed it all together. 

With some left over fabric we made this much smaller little rattle for the baby to be able to grasp before the puzzle balls.  It is so light and perfect for a tiny hand to grasp.  I also put a bell in one end.
