This is a photo of a blanket/toy I made for my 8 month old son. He loves the tags on all his little books and soft toys, so I made him this using different types of ribbons. There are satin ones, velvet ones and rick rack. It's great to have in the nappy bag, at home and can also be hooked through the loops onto pram straps so you don't have to keep picking it up. Great for in the trolley too, if you tie it around the handle or onto the trolley seat cover with ribbon.


  1. Love this idea Kathryn. If only I'd had one when my girls were little. How much are they to buy from you? They'd make great gifts at baby showers or after baby arrives.


    PS Love the blog!

  2. I thought of selling them for about $10? Do you think that's a fair price? I don't want to overcharge, but I don't want to charge so little that it's not worth me making them. Thanks :)

  3. My comments don't seem to be posting I'll try again :-)
    I just saw a very similar product in the UK Mother and Baby magazine for £19 - yes that's correct $40 AUSSIE for this sort of thing (probably the materials are organic or something but STILL!) I think your projected price seems fair - make sure you are considering not just your material costs but also your labour - how much is the time worth: sourcing the materials and then driving to get them then sitting and sewing the item!
