Taggie Blanket Tutorial
I would buy my daughter all these great baby toys and she would be more excited to play with tags hanging off the pillow or blanket next to her. My sister-in-law told me about a company that makes these blankets that have tags hanging off it and I thought to myself I can make that. Their tags are just ribbon folded in half along a blanket. So I thought that I would make a small blanket for her to carry around with her with these tags. This blanket is a great project for beginners. Getting the tags to stay in place when you pin them can be a little tricky at first but once you get the hang of it the sewing is very basic sewing. Don’t worry if your lines are not sewn perfectly straight it’s just for a baby who is not going care if its a little off, their just love to play with the tags instead. I used one ribbon that was a satin finish and one that was a grosgrain finish to get her different textures to play with. You can have fun and play with different fabrics and ribbons that your baby would like.
Make sure your fabrics are laying right sides together. After you sew them you’ll be turning it right side out.
Lay the fabric down so all the sides are are matching up. Measure the fabric the 12 inches by 12 inches.
Cut your fabric.
Cut your first style of ribbon into 24 – 4 inch pieces and your second style of ribbon into 24 – 3 1/2 inch pieces.
Fold the ribbons in half.
Place the ribbon into the two fabric making a sandwich and pin them together with a small piece of ribbon hanging over the edge. I worked one side at a time and pined a few ribbons at a time.
Sew around the blanket lining up the edge of the foot with the edge of the fabric. Leave a one inch gap so you will be able to turn the fabric inside out.
Once you sewed all the sides use your fingers to grab in the gap and turn the fabric right side out. Fold the gap in and make a 1/4 inch top stitch around the whole blanket.
