Rag Dolly Tag Blanket - Baby Tag Toy

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Hand and/or machine sewing

Pattern Description:

This is a super easy to make sewing pattern. Sew a Rag Dolly tag blanket for baby or toddler.

Babies grip by closing their fists. Using knots instead of tabs makes it easier for baby to hold the blanket. The knots can also serve as natural teethers. Baby has teething pain? Wet a knot and freeze the whole blanket. Baby can hold the blankie while soothing gums on the frozen knot. NO toxic plastics!

This toy can also be weighted for autistic children or other children who may benefit from weighted toys. Just insert a square cotton bag of natural dry beans inside the body before you sew it shut.

Make your tag blanket from new or repurposed materials. The Linen blanket shown was made from repurposed linen shirts, girls floral dress, vintage gingham apron, and remnants of new fabrics.

NOTE: This pattern can be made to match the Colorball or Patchwork/ Zakka Style Tag Ball pattern available here: http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/sewing/toy/zakka-baby-ball-clutch-ball-tag-toy/83955?_ct=iuqhsx-kdyluhiqb-huikbj-fqjjuhd&_ctp=83955
