I made this today for my SIL. I hope she likes it. It's really easy to make, and not a lot of money either. I am going to put it in a basket along with a couple books and small toys.

Ok It's real easy to make. I used 100% cotton on one side and flannel on the other cut to .75 meter square. You can make it any size you want. Now cut up various ribbons about 3 inches long (you will want about 6 for each side so 24 all together. Take one of your squares and pin your ribbons to the RIGHT side of your fabric so they are facing in toward the middle and the raw edge of the ribbon is aligned with the raw edge of the fabric. Now place your other fabric square on top of the other one, RIGHT sides together and pin. Now sew the squares together leaving an opening so you can turn it inside out. Clip your corners and turn inside out. press really good and turn in  the raw edges of your hole. Sew closely along the edge of your blanket  and voila you are done.

Here is a smaller version I made, hopefully the pictures will make some sense Wink

Btw, my SIL loved it!

What are the tags for?

i think they're just to give the baby something to fiddle/play with, which is stimulating and more fun for the baby

That's really cute.

Did you use fleece and flannel for the blanket? How big is it?

I have 3 friends who are expecting within the next several months, and I'd like to make them each one Smiley

That is soo cute!!  Please post a tutorial.  That would be the perfect thing for my niece's baby.

My sister had one of those for her newest baby (he's one now) and he loved it.  Somewhere along the line I found a bunch of ribbon remnants on sale and had leftover fleece - well, I made one.  I was going to pass it along to a friend with a new baby........but my nephew has snagged it as his own.  I'll have to make some more!

I made mine out of fleece and it's pretty small, a little bigger than a washcloth since he never really covered up with it.  I used 2 layers of fleece and just sewed up 3 sides with various ribbons stuck in between the layers.  Then flipped it inside out (similar to making a pillow), folded under the raw edges and added the ribbons, then sewed up all around the 4 sides so none of the ribbons would come out.  Anyway, that's how I made mine and the pic looks similar (only larger).

Hope that helps and gardenhoe - your's is so cute.  Love your choice of materials and the ribbon goes so well with the theme!  I'm sure it'll be greatly appreciated!

My best friend's nephew has one of those and he LOVES it. He won't go to sleep until he has it with it -- it's so cute haha..

It would be GREAT if you posted a tutorial on how to make one of these; my Nanny is having a baby and I want to make her one Smiley

  Oh, how funny!  I was thinking of making one of these for my boss who's due in January.  I'll keep an eye out for a tute. Smiley

I have made several for all the prego's around me!!!!!

They go together easily.  What i did was to buy receiving blankets and either used two or one rec. blanket and a 30x30 piece of fleece.

The trick i learned was to just stick the ribbons in between the two layers and pin parallel to the hem of the fabric then when all the ribbons or tags were in place for that side to pin the "tags" perpendicular to the hem.



p.s. i'd post the photo of one i did, but i still haven't gotten around to learning how to post pics here.
