I just gave one of these to a friend over the weekend (baby shower).  If I knew how to do photos without too much effort I'd post the one I made.

My son got one when he was born (at 2.5 years old "green tab" is a MUST for bed time).  Babies start my touching them (ribbons and the fabric offer difference feels) then they suck on the tabs during the teething phase and then it's just a security thing as they get older (some people aren't big on security blankets, but no child has ever walked down the isle carrying one so not too worried about that).  They're easy to make and awsome gifts, babies really love them. 

Try making it with Minkee/Minky fabric on one side (I did minkee and fleece).  Friggin softer than the softest thing you could imagine.  Also I like sewing the two sides together - it helps if there is a big enough pattern to outline.

My mom made a tag blanket for my dd (who latched onto tags as her "thing" instead of a doll, pacifier, etc.).  But with dd they had to be REAL tags - she could tell the difference between a tag and a piece of satin ribbon!  lol  Anyway, my mom actually made a pieced quilt (just basic squares; nothing fancy) and sewed the tags between the squares.  That way, whichever part of the blanket dd had hold of, she could easily find a tag.  Everyone loves it.

That is too cute! My fabric is pre-washing as we speak, hopefully I'll be able to put pics up later today! I love the fish fabric you used...

that is a really smart idea. those things are EXPENSIVE to buy, that is if you can find one.

Thanks!!  I got the fabric and ribbons at WalMart - all for $25 and I'm making 10 taggies.  I think they're a great gift to have on hand to give with a pack of onesies.

That is so great, I never knew that there was such a thing as one of these but I've been thinking awhile that babies need a toy made purely of tags, since thats pretty much the only part of toys that my little girl likes so far.

I think I have to make a few of these blankets for upcoming showers, thanks for the idea!

SO glad I found this old thread!

I might make a blanket like this but have a question: what do you put in between the two layers of fabric? I haven't read anything to that effect, but wouldn't two layers of fabric not make for a very warm blanket? Perhaps I could get some quilt batting, or just another layer of fleece.

What do you think?
