Quick Fabric Taggie Tutorial

So the taggie toys are IN right now!!  They are really fun for baby and easy to make!  

I've seen tons around; even at the high-priced baby stores!  Many different styles and tuts around blogland too!  

But all I've seen are ribbon taggie toys...?  I was wanting to sew some new toys, but didn't have enough ribbon.  Mmmm...(thinking)

I was in a creative mood and decided to try and make some taggies out of scrap fabric!  Turned out to be really easy and they can be made to match your main cool is that?

Here is what you need:
some scrap fabric pieces that are at least 3" long and 1 to 2" wide (you can go bigger and longer)
sewing machine
thread, scissors, etc.

Step 1: So get you some scrap together and cut to size.  
Step 2: Tri-fold your fabric piece.
Step 3: Iron the piece flat.
Step 4: Once ironed flat, fold in half long ways.  Set your machine to a decorative stitch (I like zig zag, but you can use anything) and stitch right down the middle and all done!

Now you've got some fun, fabric taggies for custom toys!
