My godfather and his wife had a baby a couple of months ago, and I'm finally getting around to sending them their present. I am a horrible procrastinator. On the bright side, the baby is just getting to the point where he likes to lay on his belly and wiggle, so it's the perfect time for a taggie blanket.

Both the parents are disney freaks, so the top is this adorable Mickey Mouse print. My godfather is also a huge hockey fan (he and my dad played on their college team together) so I added some little hockey ribbons as a shared interest kind of thing. I'm sure the baby will have skates by the time he's 3 years old.

The top is cotton and the bottom is fleece. It's very squishy & soft. I'm really pleased with how it came out, though it took FOREVER to arrange the ribbons how I wanted them. The only problem is that the X in the middle to "quilt" the blanket is off center (because I was incapable to sewing in a straight line that day).

For my first taggie, I'm pretty happy with it  Cheesy

This is so cute. There's so many "tags" the baby is going to have a field-day.

Just to make sure -- babies just like to pull & grab at them right ?

That's is soo kick-butt! I hope to make one for my son soon. What I plan to do is take empty portable wipes conainers (the disposable bag like ones) and sew them into the inside of the taggie blanket, that way they make a crinkle sound.

That's a fantastic idea!! Plus you're recycling =) I'll have to keep that idea in mind
