DIY Tag Blanket

Save that well-loved blanket, t-shirt, sheet, etc Here is just one of many ideas to repurpose these items. Use some scraps of ribbon or pick up some in coordinating colors if you wish. Making your very own tag blanket is very simple. Here, I took some scrap fleece material and miscellaneous small pieces of ribbon that I had left over from other projects. To purchase a Taggie you will spend approximately $25.00. In keeping with our “Green” theme of Reusing and repurposing, try making your own. Not only is it simple and eco-friendly, it’s something you created especially for your little one..

 I used three layers of fleece on mine for extra fluffiness. It measures 9.5″ x 10″.  The ribbons are of different colors and textures and even though it doesn’t really go together, it works.  If you use two pieces of material, you simply cut them to the same size. Sew your ribbons onto the inside of one of the pieces of fabric. Sew the other over the top to conceal your stitched on ribbons and try to follow the stitching of the other side. This will leave you with “raw” edges. Depending on what fabric you’re using, you may need some fray check or something to keep the material from fraying. This wasn’t a problem with the fleece. It’s washed and held up nicely. Brayden also loves to chew on it.

So the price of Brayden’s new tag blanket? FREE.
