One Hour Baby Project... Minky Taggy Blanket



I have seen these taggy blankets before and they look so cute and fun! I had some extra blue minky from another project, so I thought I would try to make one. Seriously it took less than an hour and the only reason that it took that long is because I had to decide between all my different blue ribbon ha ha. 


First things first.. cut the minky. I made mine square, about 24 inches x 24 inches. But you could make it any size that you want. So you should now have two sides of minky that can match up in size. 


The next things I did was pick out all of the different ribbons that I wanted. I know that a lot of times these blankets just have silky ribbon, but I decided to pick out a bunch of different types of ribbon. I placed them around the blanket just to see where I wanted them, but if you have better visualizing than me you can skip this step. 



Once I decided where I wanted all the ribbon, pin them in place. Pin them on the right side of one of the minky squares. Make sure the loop side of the ribbon is facing the inside of the square. Then I sewed each of the ribbons on. 


Next step is to put the two minky sides right sides together and sew along the edges. Leave about a 4 inch opening so that you can turn it right side out. Then sew the opening closed. 


TA-DA! Done. Minky Taggy Blanket in less than an hour. :)
