A friend had a baby at the end of the year and wanted some taggies but said they cost too much so why not make me do them for free,  Roll Eyes you know how that goes. Anyway I have a soft spot for babies, and this was before my  "no making things for free" new years resolution, so I had her get the supplies and went to work.

There's 8 total, some owl on both sides, some nursery rhymes on both sides, and some have one owls on one side and nursery rhymes on the other. If I remember they're 9"x11" or something like that and the tags are a couple inches long.

I used 1 yd of fabric (1/2 yd of each design) and 4 spools of 5ydx1/2" ribbon.

Other than figuring out the measurements to get the most without any waste, it was a pretty quick and easy project.



Nursery rhymes.


Owls (love this fabric)


I've been working on some more for the shop to match the swaddlers I sell, the new ones have crunchy/crinkley stuff inside for added fun. I'll post pics of those in a few days when I finish them up.

Thanks for looking! C&C always welcome.

Thanks!
The nursrey rhyme fabric was too cute, I just wish I could have used it on something bigger becasue they had a scene for every nursery rhyme on there. They're rediculously easy to make. If you can sew a straight line you can make them, its just 2 squares sewn together with some loops of fabric stuck in the edges. But I do suggest basting the ribbon to one of the peices of fabric before sewing the 2 peices of fabric together. This just makes it go a lot quicker cuz you don't have to worry about the ribbon sliding out of place while you're sewing.
