Tag Blankie

Hello readers!! I'm hoping you have been missing me. April is my family's busiest month but most of the chaos is over. Yay!
Anyway, ya know how some people have their "signature" baby shower gift? Like, the blanket, or the scrapbook, or booties. I have a Tag Blankie. :) In fact it is asked for. I am sure you have seen them before, a little blankie with ribbon poking out all over. I love them and I love how cute they are and how easy they are to make!!
Here is my latest one. Done for my dear friend Amy who just brought home a beautiful baby girl!! Her nursery colors are pink and green!! This is what I came up with!!

I picked 3 fabrics that I loved and bought a quater of a yard of each!! Then I found some adorable coordinating ribbon and bought a half yard of each(those were eventually cut into 4 pieces)
I love it and think it came out fabulous!! This one measures about 9 inches (without ribbon).
Here is the back. Sorry the picture quality is lacking. I was in a hurry.

And this one I made for my friend Whitney...Her colors were pink and brown!! ♥

Hmm, I don't think I have a tag blankie...

It is very cute and I might have to come up with one all on my own. Livi won't take a binkie, but she loves to bite on blankets.

I love making these, too! Sometimes I put something in to make them crinkly. So fun!
