Tag/Ribbon Blanket

I've seen these tag/ribbon blankets all over the internet and decided I wanted to make one. I bought a really cute kit for one at a quilt shop this weekend that has some beautiful minky fabric in it. I wanted to make one with some scrap fabric and ribbon first so that I didn't mess up the beautiful one I purchased! Here is how my trial one turned out:
Here is a photo of the back:
And up-close:

My new little kittens have adopted this blanket....

I made sure I sewed the ribbons on real good so they can't tear them off. This was a very easy, quick project that would be good for a last-minute baby shower gift.

If you Google "tag blanket" you will get all kinds of results, but I found a great tutorial here with lots of pictures and good directions.

I plan on making the kit I bought for our newest family member, our great-nephew Kael. I'll show you pictures once it's finished.

Enjoy your day!
