I've been making Taggies for a couple of weeks
and on Wednesday I turned them in to Outreach.
I decided to step-up the look of the Taggie with some
fancy stitching. Instead of making a solid block [like below]
I made the above. It was a little more time consuming but that's ok.
This Taggie went to a Facebook friends grandson.
Derby just had to get in the picture.
Why Taggies Are Popular With Babies
Babies have busy little fingers and love to fiddle with fabric
and interact with all sorts of things. A tag blanket is a cuddly
and soft baby blanket that features looped pieces of
ribbon or cloth sewn along the borders. The tags on the blanket typically
come in a variety of colors, patterns and textures to create visual
and tactile appeal for baby. These blankets are often small -- less than 12
inches on each side -- but they can come in larger sizes, too.
A tag blanket can be your baby’s lovey -- a security blanket that
provides not only comfort, but also entertainment. It can engage your
little one, stimulating his senses and giving his cognitive
development a jump start while keeping him cozy. And when your
baby reaches and grabs for the tags, he’s also developing his
fine motor skills, as well as his hand-eye coordination.
For the rounds I played with two different sizes.
That little dinosaur was a pain and the fish was
pretty easy. I have some nautical flannel on order
for the next batch of Taggies.
