Introduction: Quick and Easy Taggy Buddy for Your Little One

These are super easy and fun to make. :)

You'll need:
Paper (for pattern)
2 pieces of fleece
3 or 4 different types of ribbon cut into 3" pieces
scissors
Sewing Machine


Step 1: Make a Pattern

Decide what kind of buddy you'd like to make ( I made a bunny ) and draw it out onto your paper. Don't worry about legs just round the bottom off. Cut it out.

Step 2: Cut the Little Guy Out.

Take two pieces of fleece and stack them wrong sides together. Pin your pattern on top and cut around it. Now is the time to add a face to the top piece of fleece if you'd like.

Step 3: Add the Tags.

Now take your ribbon pieces, fold them in half, and sandwich them between the fleece along the bottom of your buddy. You can add a longer piece of ribbon to the top so that it can be attached to a link. Pin everything together.

Step 4: Sew It All Up.

Take your buddy over to your sewing machine and top stitch around the edge.

Voila! A little taggy buddy! :D

    mY GRANDDAUGHTER IS ADDICTED TO THEM (FOR SECURITY, SURE BEATS HER THUMB!)SO I JUST TAKE 2 1/2" OF RIBBON TO MATCH HER CLOTHES AND SEW IT ON THE SIDESEAM OF HER CLOTHES ON THE OUTSIDE. THAT WAY SHE ISN'T HAVING TO TURN EVERYTHING OUT OR TRY TO GET THE TAGS OF HER UNDERPANTS!!!!

     Brilliant idea!!!! I had to laugh at the notion of the undies tags being a taggy substitute.... kids are clever. Adding the taggies to the clothes is such a terrific alternative. Thanks for posting.

    It's been 25 years since I've had a baby... what the heck is a 'taggie'?

    A "taggie" is a blanket with ribbon tags around the edges. My daughter loves them but they take up a lot of room in the diaper bag so I made smaller cuter ones. ;)
