I don't know what happened but it seems like everyone is pregnant this summer and I have about 100 gifts to get together (well, thats what it feel lisle at least)! So I thought I would throw together some of these taggie blankets I have seen around so much.
Neither of my girls had one but they both rub the one tag on their 'lovies' until they fall asleep. So it proved to me that there must be something to this taggie thing.
They are pretty easy to make, just find a couple small scraps of fabric and several different ribbons...
Pin the ribbon all around the edges of the right side of the fabric with the loops facing inward toward the middle. This is important, you will be turning it right side out later and if you place them the wrong way they will be on the inside.
Sew the two pieces of fabric together, right sides together. Don't forget to leave an opening to turn it around.
after you sew around all the edges clip the corners, this keeps the corners from being too bulky and makes it easier to have sharp corners on the right side.
Now flip it right side out and sew around the entire edge. This will sew the opening shut as well as add a nice finished edge.
Ta-Da!!! See, done, so easy, you can make this in less than an hour. And your friends will love it!
