There are lots of great ideas on the internet, but I mainly followed this tutorial/video by Rob @ Man Sewing. I didn't have a plan when I started, so I had to search my various crafts piles to find items.
I tried to use items that had different textures:
- piece of elastic for texture and to pull
- piece of minky fabric for texture
- beads on ribbon to slide
- various pieces of ribbon
- fuzzy hair elastic to pull
Some more ribbon for playing and some larger beads.
I also added a pocket; a piece of velcro; a zipper; and some lace.
It finishes 23 inches. I'm hoping this is a good size for her lap and that I've included enough different items and textures.
This took about three hours to finish (finding items took the longest). I'm looking forward to making more fidget quilts.
