The creation of this little number is pretty obvious. Sew strips of fabric around the edges of another piece of fabric. I used a square piece of fleece about 12" by 12" and then stitched a circle in gathering stitch in the middle and pulled tight for the central knobbin.
I had considered making the center have a face, but that seemed a little creepy for my taste. Maybe that would be more appropriate for someone with more advanced embroidery skills...
Anyhoo, as discussed before I think I really decided to make this when I was caught up in the fury of inspiration at looking at availble baby products on Esty and Amazon thinkin 'oh, I could make that, I could make that too!' and I didn't really question how much I liked the project until I had committed to it.
This is the photo I have saved on my computer which I believe is from someone's Esty site. When I started saving inspiring photos I just put them in a folder in my documents (I don't think pintrest had caught on yet and I still don't have a pinterest but this is making me realize that maybe I should if I'm gonna reference other people's stuff on my blog), so I don't have a source for this one, but if you really want it try searching for baby toys on Etsy.
