Tag blankets are easy to make and a great first sewing project. I made this one with minky. If you arenot familiar with minky it is a soft and cuddly machine washable chenille that is perfect for use in baby blankets. I'm sure there are a million tutorials on this, but here is my version. It will make a 17 inchsquare blanket not including the ribbons.First you will need some supplies:1/2 yard of minky1/4 yard each of 16 different ribbonsthread pinsscissorssewing machineIf you use wire ribbon you will want to take out the wire. This is so easy. Just use a tweezer to pull outthe wire. It should slide right out. Then cut each ribbon into two pieces. Make them all different lengthsso that some ribbons are longer than others. Cut two 18 inch squares out of the minky.Fold each ribbon in half and pin the raw edge of ribbon to the edge of the right side of one of the piecesof minky. I pinned 8 different ribbons to each side in varying distances apart starting an inch away from
the edges. Ribbons should face inside. (see photo below) Baste the ribbons down using your sewingmachine with a 3/8 seam allowance. Now put right sides together of the minky squares. Pin together making sure ribbons are inside. Now, using a 1/2 inch seam allowance machine sew together leaving a 4 inch opening for turning.Clip all edges and corners leaving a 1/4 inch raw edge. Turn right side out.
