Baby sewing is in full swing! For my own baby and for others! This wooden ring teether tutorial is quick and fun to sew.
You know I love a good baby shower project and I submit that this little combo is perfect for baby gifts! It’s also perfect because it can be adapted for a baby boy, girl or a not-finding-out gift!
I really love that there are a few girly prints in here and also some great gender-neutral ones (the arrows!) so I have a nice little stash of baby gifts saved up now!
I used the Bandana Bib Pattern listed on my site (it’s FREE!) with one little twist: terry cloth backing. The backing makes for a nice absorbent bib for extra drooly babies, and as a bonus it’s nice and soft on the backside. Even if your baby isn’t super drooly, why not have a towel on the back?
I put these snaps in with a KAM snap placer. I’ll tell you more about it later, but I love this thing!
The backing is really just made from a white towel I got at Target. You can purchase terry cloth material, or just use a towel!
I made a little bib/teether set with these wooden ring teethers. There’s a FREE download for these, too!
Wooden Ring Teether Materials
- 3″ natural wooden ring, I got mine from this shop on etsy but Amazon has them cheaper!
- 1/4 yard fabric (Fabric in this post was provided by Fat Quarter Shop!)
- 1/4 yard terry cloth (or towel)
Wooden Ring Teether Tutorial
Step 1: Cut 1 front and 1 back from pattern download. Make sure you put the arrow up against a fold.
Step 2: Sew front and back together with right sides together, leaving a 1/4″ seam allowance. Leave a 1-2″ opening on one side for turning. Trim seam allowance and clip points.
Step 3: Turn rightside out and press well. Then topstitch around teething toy, 1/8″ from edge. You’ll close up the hole you left when you topstitch so make sure those edges are pinned together neatly.
Step 4: Fold fabric in half.
Step 5: Slip into wooden ring.
Step 6: Pull ends over loop and through the fold in the fabric.
Step 7: Pull edges until the fabric is taut, adjust as necessary.
And you’re done!
