Baby Tag Blanket Tutorial

Despite all the fun toys hanging from her activity gym, Vera was intrigued by the tag...until she ripped it off. That's when I decided to make her a tag toy. Here's what you will need to make your own baby tag blanket:

One 10" x 11" piece of cotton print fabric
One 10" x 11" piece of polka-dot chenille
One 10" x 11" piece of batting
Twenty 5" pieces of ribbon, different colors and sizes

Fold each 5" piece of ribbon in half. Pin onto patterned fabric, raw edges together. Pin five ribbons to each side of the square. Place batting on top then chenille on top of that, right side down. So you will have your cotton print, right side up, ribbons, batting, and chenille, wrong side up.

Sew around the edges with a 1/2" seam allowance, leaving an opening for turning. Clip corners and turn right side out. Push out corners with fabric turner and press. Sew opening closed with a slip stitch then top stitch around the edges about 1/2" in.
