This is a tag blankie that I made for little Sam. I have made one for each of my kiddos because regular blankets are overwhelming for me, and it just seems much more likely that a tag blankie could be finished before the child is one.
Never made a tag blankie before? It's super easy!
I googled "cowboy," and found a fun sherif's star that I printed, cut, and traced on jeans. I then cut out that star and sewed it onto the horseshoe fabric. I sewed around it three times to look imperfect and to secure the jeans (they fray like crazy!).
Then I put the fabric right sides together and stuck loops of ribbon between the two pieces, loops on the inside.
To finish, I sewed around the whole thing, leaving a three inch opening to pull the fabric out right side up. Then I sewed the opening closed.
Doesn't he look snug? He loves this thing, he chews on it ferociously! :)
