Taggy Ribbon Blankets

Recently received a custom made order to sew two Taggy Ribbon Blankets. Before this order came, I've seen such blankets before but never really know what was its purpose...

As I was preparing to fulfill this order, I read that these blankets are actually educational. It was then that I recalled when Tim was teething, there was a period of time he was very fond of chewing on fabric or ribbon tags... tags of toys, clothes etc...
These 12"x12" blankets are perfect for little hands just learning to grasp, they are great for tactile development. Babies love the different textures and colours of these blankets thereby creating stimulants to their touch senses.

I used different colours and textures and various widths of satin and grosgrain ribbons to make the taggy blankets more interesting.
It was such a good idea to have such blankets that I've decided to sew a few more to giveaway as gifts to a few friends who have just delivered a baby and/or expecting a baby...
I really thank my customer who have given me this order as well as a valuable lesson... :) If I had known of such educational blankets when Tim and Little Missy were little I would have made them a dozen to play with teehehe...

Hey Pauline,

Can I order this from you too? My boy has been chewing everything he can lay his hands on, so I thought this will be great for him.
