Baby Tag Blanket

A baby tag blanket is a way for babies to explore different textures. It can also serve as a security blanket. I have read recently that you need to use caution when using this with a toddler. They can get the ribbon twisted around their fingers. I would suggest cutting the ribbon open at the ends to prevent this from happening.

Materials:

2 pieces of soft fabric 20″ x 20″ (I used flannel on 1 side and fleece on the other)
various sizes of ribbon.How to make a baby tag blanket from www.thisautoimmunelife.comDirections:
1. Cut your ribbon into 5″ pieces. Fold the ribbon in half then pin it to the right side of one of your fabric pieces.  The cut edge of the ribbon will be lined up with the cut edge of your material. How to make a baby tag blanket from www.thisautoimmunelife.com
2. Using your sewing machine, baste around the edge of the material 1/4″ from edge to secure the ribbon onto the material. 
3. Pin right sides of the material together then sew in a 3/8″ seam which will be just inside the basting for the ribbon. Leave a 3″ opening for turning the material. Clip the corners.How to make a baby tag blanket from www.thisautoimmunelife.com
4. To make it have a crinkly noise, you can use a chip bag. Open the bag out flat then wash it with soap and water. Using a craft adhesive attach the chip bag to the darker fabric. 
5. Use the opening to turn the material right side out. Stitch the opening closed. Iron the edges flat then topstitch around the edge. How to make a baby tag blanket from www.thisautoimmunelife.com
All of these materials were in my stash so the cost to me – $0!

  7. That’s a lovely idea Roseann, and achieves several purposes in the one item!! Your blanket is lovely and colourful, and the little tags of different fabrics offer that wonderful sensory experience for little ones. I’d never thought of adding a flattened chip packet for that delightful crinkly effect too. Great tip about cutting the ends open to prevent tangled little fingers though xx
