Taggie Tutorial


Ok so I posted an example taggie but here is a tutorial....well the best I can explain with pictures.

I got some very soft fleecy fabric and cut two pieces  11inches x 11 inches (You can really make it how big you want to)

Next, cut 8 pieces of soft satin ribon

Lay one piece of material face up on the table. Take a ribbon and fold it in half and pin it on top of the fabric so that the folded edge is towards the middle and the two cut ends are touching the end of the fabric. (This may seem wrong, but we’re building this blanket inside out, and it’ll all work out when we flip it later.) Be sure to put the pin at least an inch away from the edge of the fabric so that it won’t get in the way of your sewing. 

I did 8 pieces of ribbon but you can certainly use as many as you want.

Optional part:
Then, with your other piece of fabric I sewed a crunchy wal-mart bag to the inside of it.  (Babies love crunchy stuff) :)

Then,  lay the other piece of fabric face down on top of your pinned piece, aligning the edges. (The walmart bag will be on the outside while you sew.)  Secure with a few more pins. Take this to the sewing machine and sew around all four sides, about 1/2″ in from the edge, making sure you catch both ends of each ribbon as you go. However, be sure not to sew ALL the way around — leave a gap of about 2 inches open — so that you can flip the blanket inside out.  

Then, flip it inside out and sew the little 2 inch piece that was left.

There ya go!!
