For the tags I always use ribbon in different widths and textures.  To make it crinkle I've used parchment paper before, the kind used for baking.  I put it on the inside of the blanket part though, not the tags.

Sweetpea74, be sure also that the ribbons (which really are the bee's knees to use; I look at ribbons in a whole new way now) are as baby-safe as possible:
-no wire edging (lots of ribbons have wire)
-no designs, like dots or hearts, that have been painted on

I might be wrong about the painted thing, but I wouldn't want babies munching paint that might be toxic. I don't know much about early childhood development, but I believe contrast is king - stripes, spots, bright colors, black+white, etc.

Daisygirl, the parchment paper idea is a great one!

Good luck!

Daisygirl, awesome! Does it wash up OK?

knitty mcknitknit, thanks for the tips. I think I might just stick with making my own ribbons out of craft fabric - that way I know it's 100% cotton and totally OK for bub to chew on! Smiley

I'm glad this thread is still active. Just found a photo of a small taggie I made. This is my friend's baby, Kaja (Kai-ya, a Norwegian name), enjoying her girly little taggie:


I really enjoyed making this. It's so small that it's clearly more of a toy than a blanket, but that's fine with her.

Does anyone know how to make the taggie blocks? I've seen a few on Craftster but can't really picture how it's sewn together neatly...

I've never had washing problems. Smiley  My 3 year old has had hers washed...oh...about a billion times in the past 3 years and it still crinkles.  Most of mine are small like knitty mcknitknit's.  My dd uses hers as a doll blanket now.

Thnks for sharing this!  I know this is an older post, but the tut is great!!  My step-sister is having a baby in  May and I want to make things for her.  Now all I need is a good EASY diaper bag to make... Grin

Wanted to thank you again for the tutorial.. Just made one tonight- with white fleece & pink flannel. Not as good as yours, but not bad for my first time!  Wink

Thanks so much for the tute! I made one tonight for a couple that just had their baby boy.

It went very fast - only about 20 minutes and that included picking out the fabric and ribbons!  Grin
