You will probably remember i spent last week making bibs for my SIL who goes in to hospital to be induced tomorrow. Lovely Kandi commented on the post i did and recommended making taggies so i thought i'd give it a whirl!. It was really easy to make and i am happy with the end product. It only took half an hour and i used co-ordinating fabric to match the bibs.
I love the soft fleece backing (i used half a fleece blanket from poundland!).
If you want to make one simply cut 2 pieces of co-ordinating fabrics in whatever size you want. Cut co-ordinating pieces of ribbon (i attached 12 pieces but you can do as many as you want on each side). Take your top piece of fabric (in my case the mouse patterned one) and lie it with the right side facing up. Take a piece of ribbon and fold in half and pin it to the edge of one of the sides. make sure the folded bit is on the inside and the two ends of the piece of ribbon are at the edge (hope this makes sense!). Repeat with all pieces of ribbon until they are all pinned to the edges of the fabric and the folded loop is inwards. Then take your bottom fabric and place it on top with right side facing down. You will now have both right sides of fabric facing each other on the inside. Sew around the edge of the blanket leaving a small gap on one side. Turn the blanket right side out through the gap and flatten. iron your blanket and then sew round the edge of the blanket making sure you go over the gap.
