Taggie Blankie

Our granddaughter, Miss Three, has an addiction... to "silkies"! She loves anything satin (blanket bindings, hair ribbons, nightgowns or even a tag in the back of a shirt), so when I found this pattern for taggie blankets I knew I had to make one for her. I used flannel backed satin for the back and flannel for the front. The pattern called for 5 inch pieces of ribbon for the tags, but I thought that made the loop a little too large, so I cut mine 4 inches instead. I love the way that it turned out and I'm really excited to see Miss Three's reaction when she opens it on Christmas!

Susan,
This blanket is so cute. Isn't it funny how they attach themselves to something soft and snuggly. For our kids its was a small piece of sheepskin "Sheepy" .

Hia Susan, beautiful work in the last 2 posts- sorry catching up. The blanket is adorable. One of my early blankets had a wide satin ribbon edge which I rubbed to shreds. I still like satin ribbon. LOL

I have a little something else for you on my blog.

Best Wishes,
Melanie

Now I would have LOVED a blanket like this when I was young. I was addicted to the feel of the silk binding. Gotta admit I still like it.

Thanks for your prayers for my grandson, Susan.
