I may be addicted to making taggies. This one is for my 2 year old nephew, who saw his baby sister's original Taggie, and thought it was pretty cool. I didn't think he's too old for one, so I made it just for him. He's a huge Veggie Tales fan, so this fabric was perfect! Since he's a little older, I made it bigger than my first one (12"x12").. this one measures about 20"x22". It's super soft flannel, so I almost hate to give it away!


I know there's a patent on the original Taggie brand, so I think I'll just start calling them loopies. hahaha.  Wink

Cute!  I really need to learn how to use my sewing machine and make one of these for my fitness trainer who just found out she is expecting in December.

You should definitely give it a try, it's so easy! Follow this tut: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=45180.0

For mine, I use flannel on both sides, and I sew the ribbons on to one side before I saw the two pieces of flannel together. That way the ribbons are less likely to be pulled off. I also topstitch the whole thing, which means the ribbons are actually sewn on three times. Pretty sturdy!

Even if you are new to sewing, this should be easy for you, it's basically sewing straight lines, so it's a good way to practice. Good luck!  Wink

I just found out through experience that the taggie patent isn't regarding the name, its regarding the design. Somehow they patented the idea of sewing ribbon between two layers of fabric. Very frustrating and sad.
