Need some baby shower gift inspiration? Love to make handmade gifts? Try making a baby taggie for the new arrivals with materials you may already have in your craft room. Sensory play gifts are not only cute, educational for the baby as well.
Materials you will need:
- Various ribbons (width, color & texture)
- Two pieces of soft fabric (micro-fleece, minky, anti-pill fleece, soft cotton)
- Sewing notions: fabric scissors, pins, gridded cutting mat, rotary cutter
Cut fabric in 14 X 14 squares (if your remnant isn’t 14 inches…improvise!) I bought my fabric from the remnant bin at Joann Fabric for 50% off. All the ribbons are from my craft collection at home.
Cut your ribbons to five inches each. Fold them in half.
Pin ribbons around one of the pieces of your fabric.
Top the ribbon fabric with the second piece (make sure the side you want shown is on the inside). Secure it together with pins. You are going to flip this inside out after it is sewn together. Make sure you have it pinned the right way.
Part Two of this tutorial will be how to sew it together. I am taking a sewing class at Joann Fabric tomorrow. It is as simple as sewing a square! Until tomorrow…
