Tactile Toys

A friend asked me to make some 'tactile' toys for her baby (and extras for gifts.) There are different types of ribbon...satin, velvet, shiny, smooth,ridged,  narrow and wide, worked onto a crochet base. You can put a bell inside the cushion to make it even more interesting. A felt nose and embroidered mouth and eyes all makes for rather a nice homemade toy.
