How to make a tag blanket, part one.
Fabric (as much as you want; the blanket can be as big or as small as you like)
Ribbons (DO NOT use wired ribbon unless you carefully remove all the wires first)
Thread (matching or contrasting, as you like)
Wash your fabric. Cut ribbon into 4"-6" lengths, fold in half lengthwise, right side out, and iron to set the crease in each ribbon. You will now have a nice little pile that looks like this:
Next, pin the ribbons to the right side of your fabric like this:
I like to put them an inch or so apart. Next step: sew the ribbons on, using a narrow seam allowance.
Part two, coming soon.
