Baby Taggie

9 Aug

I got my sewing machine out last night to mend some clothes and to work on a couple sewing projects I had in mind. The first was a taggie for a shower I’m attending this weekend.

My good friend Elyse (who is an amazing photographer) introduced me to taggies a couple of years ago. We figured out how to make them for a baby shower we were going to (the picture above is of the first one we made), and I’ve been making them for every baby shower I’ve attend since! I didn’t time how long this one took, but I knocked it out while watching the Olympics. They’re easy and super cute, and people almost never realize they’re handmade!

If you want to make one a few tips:

  • Wash and dry your fabric before you start. This will make sure if the taggie is washed later it won’t shrink and get funky along the seams.
  • I started out with fabric squares about 14″ x 14″.
  • Pin and sew your ribbon down (sew it to the right side of one of your squares) before sewing the two squares right sides together.
  • I like to sew a seam all the way around the outside when I’m done. It really makes the taggie look finished and keeps the two sides from rolling apart.
