Maddie's Favorite Things

Taggie Blankets

Taggie blankets are lots of fun for me and my little friends. They're easy to make, too.  Ask your grandma (or any grownup who has permission to use scissors) to make one for you!

Supplies Needed:
18" square of flannel
18" square of minkee
28 pieces of ribbon about 6" long

Fold the ribbons in half and pin 7 to each side of the right side of the flannel square. The ribbons should be about 2" apart. Space in 1" at the corners.

Right sides together, pin the flannel square to the minkee square. Sew together using a 1/2" seam allowance and leave a 3" opening. Turn right side out. Make sure all the pins are removed.

Topstitch close to the edge, sewing the opening closed. Topstitch again, 1/4" in from the edge.

Of course you can make your Taggie blanket any size you want. You can use different length ribbons, too.
