I'm curious about the fleece ribbon squares for babies. Would you describe them?

jopal said...

They are 2 squares of fleece - about 12" each with ribbons sewn in like labels - sticking out so babies can play with them. Babies love to play with. Saw them at stores and fell in love. So made some for myself to give as gifts. All my grandchildren ove them. I can send you a picture if you would like - easy to make.
