Baby Tag Blanket Tutorial:
Step 1 – Cut the elements for the tag blanket
Taking the remaining strips from the cuddle strip kit cut them to length. In Example I cut four strips to 19 inches in length. Be sure to save your scraps for future projects. Cut the backing either from cuddle fabric or satin to match the front (taking into account a half inch seam allowance between the strips). So for a back of 19 inch strips it would be 19 inches by 17 inches.
Step 2 – Assemble the front of the blanket
Since cuddle can stretch unevenly when sewn, even out the front edges and cut the strips to the same width.
Since the ribbons will be tugged on a lot we’re going to make them extra sturdy and sew them on before we sew on the back. Fold the ribbons in half and pin onto the edge of the cuddle fabric with the tops facing inward.
Step 3 – Add the back to the blanket
with a three inch gap for turning.
