If any of you have a baby around or are going to have one around a quick gift which uses up leftover everything it a Tag A Long. This is just a small square of material with loops of ribbon hanging out all around the edges. You will need a front and back, spare ribbons. Place your ribbons even with one of the edges loops going to the middle. Place the second piece of material over and sew. Leave an opening for turning it all right side and handstitch the opening and your done. Can be made as small as you think looks good. These are just for the little ones to take with them, instead of dragging the big blankets. You do not have to use only satin ribbons. Add a variety to give them more textures. Just make sure the material is machine washable, for these get dirty. I have seen these done with a basic material ribbon and seen them with the childs name on them. The possibilities are whatever you want to put into them.
