    This is very sweet, but a warning: babies and little children can get their fingers twisted up in the loops and cut off their circulation. This is why stuffed animals for babies have tags that are either cut or sewn flat. My pediatrician warned me about it. I’m surprised no other commenters mentioned it. Use only under supervision? :)

    Oh my gosh, I want a taggie monster. I’ve made monsters but never thought to put tags on them.

    I have a few friends expecting babies in the new year, and I think this is a great idea! Super quick and easy and fun!

    I’m going to need more scraps just to make all these great ideas. I agree with Donna, I don’t want October to end!!

    I will definitely be making one of these for my FIRST grandchild due April 3!!! Thanks for the idea.

    Such a cute idea – perfect for little hands who need little things to hold onto!

    My sister just made one of these with a twist. She inserted a used baby wipes package so that it crinkles. Here’s her version:

    This is so cute! I am definitely going to make this for my baby girl.

  14. Thanks everyone for lovely comments about my tag toy. So quick and easy to make. There are a few tutorials around that add plastic to the inside to make a great crinkly sound as well (which I didn’t to), such as this lovely one http://www.joyshope.com/2009/05/baby-crinkle-square-tutorial.html

  15. Nikki says:

    I just made one last night after completing small projects and having some scraps. Great minds think alike. I am loving all the projects for using up scraps. Thank you.

  16. Jackie Davis says:

    yeah! I’ve been wanting to make these for my friend who does physical therapy for very disabled kids. They could have their own! Thanks for the three awesome tutorials!!

    too cute! I made my son a taggie toy with the scrap from his baby blanket but he never played with it. He only wanted the bobby tag!

    Cute idea. Nice use of scrap ribbon.

    My son loves his tag lovie that I made. They are great to use scraps of ribbons from projects as well as leftover fabric.

  29. Kadybug says:

    I like the fall look to the blanket.

    Thank you sewmama for also posting the other tutorials along with this one. I am in process of making one or two and had considered doing one using the minky material. The one tutorial had some great heads up for me when using minky.

  30. Christina says:

    I have been wanting to make one of these for my new niece/nephew, so this is perfect timing!
