One of my friends wanted to do something special for a buddy of hers who is having her first son. My friend had the ribbon from her pregnant friend’s wedding bouquet and wanted something that incorporated that. Cute idea right? The first thing that popped into my head was a little taggie blanket because we all know how little people love chewing on those and playing with ribbon.
It was such a quick and easy project and I think it turned out really cute that this would be great for one of those last minute baby showers.
What You Need
- Fabric one piece for the front or back. The amount depends on the size of blanket you want. I used pieces that were each 21×21 inches. (Any kind of fabric would work but I used flannel for one side and just a regular cotton quilting fabric for the other)
- Scraps of ribbon
What To Do
- Decide how big you want to make your blanket and cut both pieces of fabric to size. I’ve seen small ones that are 12×12 but I did 21×21 since it was an easy square to make with the fabric I had on hand.
- Then cut and fold your ribbon and position it on the right side of one of your fabric pieces (I used ribbon pieces that ranged from 2-5 inches).
- Pin the other piece of fabric right side down to the first pieces catching the ribbon pieces. The ribbon should now be sandwiched between the right sides of your fabric.
- If you want rounded corners use a bowl to draw the curve on each corner.
- Sew around the edge leaving a whole where you can flip the blanket right side out.
- Top stitch around the blanket closing the hole.
- Look at your adorable taggie blanket you made and feel proud.
