Baby Crinkle Square

I have wanted to make a baby crinkle square for awhile and decided to just sit down and do it one day. I basically winged it but found THIS tutorial at Fireflies and Jelly Beans later to share with you.

Here's what I did:

I cut my two layers of fabric (one layer I sewed four tiny squares together to make a different pattern) into perfect squares and then layered a square of cellophane and a baby wipe package for a major crinkle sound.

Then I pinned my ribbon to the right side of the front fabric piece.

I did a ton of ribbon pieces in different sizes.

Then I flipped the top piece over to rest on top of all the layers. Right sides of both pieces facing each other.

I then sewed all around the square with a 1/4 inch seam allowance. Left a little room to turn it inside out and then whip stitched the opening closed.

Finally, I hand stitched on a piece of fuzzy material in the shape of a heart on the front.

My baby loves it!


  1. It's super cute. You could probably do that in the teething cuddler that we have over at Scraps N' Strings.

  2. A friend of mine accidentally found out how to make a 'crinkle' shirt. She did an applique and forgot to take the backing off the heat n bond before sewing it on. Once she washed it, it started making the crinkle noise. TOO funny!

  3. Sammy- You are so right! That teething cuddler is so cute!

    Jenna- That is hilarious! How did she fix it? Or did she just deal with the "crinkle" sound following her around? :)

  4. She's just dealing with it. Now that she knows what she did, she just laughs when she hears it!

  5. I just wanted to let you know that your link to this from your tutorials page, takes you to the sunburst clock page. At least you had a search bar though so I could still find it! Thanks for posting these!

  6. Thanks for letting me know Heather! I've now fixed the link on the tutorials page :)
