The best toy I’ve ever made for a 1-year-old or younger has to be a fabric triangle. The first little boy I made one for is now six. Where did the time go! Anyway he still owns and loves his triangle. His is a monster. My most recent one was for my youngest nephew. He grabbed it and ran! This time I cut letters out of fabric and put on one each side.
Here are some pictures of the finished project. It is mostly filled with polyfil and a bit of fabric scraps. I used all my polyfil and do not plan on buying more. I have been saving scrap fabric, threads and old socks to use as stuffing.
