How To Make A Baby Taggie Blanket

This month is all about baby items!

To start this series off, we are making this cute little taggie blanket. The different textures of the dimple plush and the ribbon are fab for babies. 

We made a small taggie, but you are more than welcome to increase the size should you wish. 

Take a look below at what you will need and the steps to take:

Using cotton and dimple plush

What you will need:

  • RIBBON
    The taggies are made with silky ribbon. We stock a whole range of ribbon here. We just used whatever we had on hand! We chose four different colours.
  • PINS
    You might want to secure your fabric when sewing to stop slipping. 
  • CUTTING BOARD
    For a flat surface you can cut on.

  • THREAD
    You might want to choose a neutral white, or match the thread to your cotton.
  • SEWING MACHINE

Step 1: Create a template

21cm x 22cm

Step 2: Draw around template on back of cotton
