Tagged Blanket Tutorial for boys or girls

muslim blog tagged blanket tutorial
This is a photograph of a Tagged Blanket I made for my nephew recently.  I have previously posted a tutorial on how to make a Tagged Blanket last year with a Girly Fabric, but thought I might as well post another tutorial for those who were not a follower of my blog at that time.

Below is my own mini tutorial of how I made this from a curtain! These are similar to the the ones sold in shops and called 'Taggies'. These are ideal for babies, who love nothing else than playing with the tags on toys and clothes!  Always make sure the tags are sewed securely for the safety of the baby!

My Mini Tutorial

  • 2 x Square pieces of fabric (roughly about 30cm x 30cm)
  • Sewing Pins
  • Different styles of Ribbon (I used 5 styles)
  • Needle and Thread or Sewing Machine

1) Cut out 2 square pieces of fabric (See Picture2)
2) Cut out 20 pieces (more or less if you prefer) of ribbon. (Length 5 inches each)
3) Fold the ribbons in half and place onto one of the pieces of fabric (pattern facing) leaving an even space between each piece of ribbon. Pin these into place all around the square then sew them into place. (See Picture 4)
4) Place the top square pattern facing onto the top of the sewed square facing ribbons the ribbons.  Leave a small gap so to turn inside out. (See Picture 6)
5) Once finished sewing, tun the square inside out (now the correct way!)
6) Iron the square into shape. (Picture 7)
7) Topstitch -sew all around the edges of the square. This also helps with securing the tags. You are now finished. (See Picture 8)

I also made a baby blanket and a matching burp cloth, here is the link to the Burp Cloth Tutorial I made: burp cloth tutorial

  4. Karima -- this is so cute! Bet your nephew (and his mama!) loves it. Good idea to top stitch around the finished blanket to help secure the taggies. Thanks for linking on Busy Monday at A Pinch of Joy! Hope to see you again soon –

    1. Yes - extra stitching for gifts for little ones is always preferred by me.
