A taggie blanket makes a great addition to any mom’s arsenal of toys. Although neither of my sons owned a taggie blanket they have played with them and other moms swear by it. The perfect size for a game of peek-a-boo, fun textures to stimulate their mind, and the perfect companion for comfort.
You can make this as simple or complex as you want. With just a couple cuts of ribbon and two different fabrics you could whip together a quick taggie. I quilted my front and used a solid for the reverse.
-Face right sides of fabric together.
-Place batting on top.
-fold ribbon lengths in half, creating a loop, slip between two pieces of fabric. The loop should go in first, leaving the unfinished strands on the outside edge. Pin in place.
-Sew along the outer edge leaving approximately 3 inches unfinished, removing pins as you go.
-Flip your blanket right side out.
-Fold in unfinished edge. Sew a 1/4″ around from the edge.
-If you quilted sew along the quilt seams. Switch to a short zig zag stitch. This will reinforce your seams for years of fun.
