Happy Tag Blanket

This blanket makes me happy- it was fast, easy, and fun. I used this tutorial I found on Craftzine.

My modifications: I didn't use an existing blanket, I just bought a yard of each of the fabrics. The ribbons are spaced 2 inches apart, and 2 inches from the corners. I did two rows of top-stitching. It is about 36" x 42".

The fabric is from JoAnn's. The green and white fabric is some basic nursery flannel and the dinos are just regular quilt cotton. The ribbons have been amassed over time. It was a great way to use the "scrapbooking" ribbons I got from the dollar section at Target.

Ben seems to enjoy it, which is all I can really ask for. He tested out the ribbons for it yesterday.*What if the baby gets in the ribbon drawer?*


  1. I love this!! I wanted to make Dec one of those small tag things, but I just haven't. I love that you say this was quick, so maybe I'll try it! A blanket would be *so much* more useful than a small thing anyway!

  2. Ooooo, and I just realized that this could be a great use for all of those receiving blankets I amassed! :-D

  3. It took a trip to JoAnn's, one evening, and one solid nap time. (Thanks to our playdate, he was worn out!)
