How to Sew… Super cute Baby Biterings!
Pretty simple, but so cute. Perfect for your own babies, or just as fun to give as a baby gift.
We have seen many similar teething rings around (many of them so overpriced).
It will take less than 10 minutes to sew one!
We have used the Jerseys from the Confetti from the Sky collection.
- Fabrics for the front and back layers
- Sewing machine
- Wooden rings +/- 5cm
1. Decide which of the three you want to make (or just choose them all).
2. Print the pattern and cut along the lines. The pattern pieces are including a seam allowance of 1cm.
3. The patterns are half size, make sure you cut in on the fold (so it ends up twice as big).
4. Cut twice for the front and back (or cut one piece from another fabric).
- For the bunny- and kitty ears, cut the small insides from a different fabric and pin on the ends of the ear pieces.
- For the bunny- and kitty ears, top stitch the insides onto both ends of the ear pieces.
2. Pin the ear pieces on top of each other – right sides together.
3. Sew around the outer edges of the ears using a 1cm seam allowance, leaving about a 4cm opening along the side.
4. Cut off the point at each end (without cutting through your seam).
5. Turn right sides out through the side opening, poke out the ends and iron flat.
6. Sew the opening by hand
1. To attach your ears to the wooden ring, fold the ears in half and slide halfway through the ring.
2. Fold the ends down over the bottom of the ring and though the loop created by the fold in the middle of the ear.
3. Pull though to tighten and secure the ear.
4. Fold ears down for puppy style or leave the ears up for bunny or kitty ears.
