So, if any of you have seen these cutest ribbon tab blankets that are floating around out there,...well little hands just love them. (So much so that my 15 month old kept trying to steal one from a 5 month old. So not cool!:)) Well they are just too adorable, and pretty simple to make. So I thought I would give it a try.
I just used two rectangles of coordinating fabric (approx 18" by 24") and made sure that one of the fabrics was really textured and fuzzy. Then I cut 20 pieces of ribbon about 6" long. I did four pieces of five different ribbons for a pattern, but my friend made one with all kinds of mismatched ribbons and it was adorable as well,...so just go to town!!
I was not even super careful spacing the ribbon. Just eyed it. I pinned the loops facing inside so that when you turn the fabric inside out they just pop right on out.
Placed the coordinating fabric on top and sewed it with about 1/2 an inch seam allowance just to make sure I caught all of the ribbon. (Remember to leave your opening to turn it. I left a corner because it was the biggest space between ribbons and I did not want to deal with sewing a ribbon into the finishing seam.)
