Tag Binky Directions

Cut two 17" squares of fleece.

Cut 28 different pieces of trim or ribbon 4" long.

On one square, mark the center and embroider as desired. Be sure to top with a tear-away or dissolving stabilizer so threads don't sink into the pile.

Fold over each piece of 4" ribbon to form a 2" tag. On right side of fleece, pin each tag (raw edges of tag to raw edge of fleece) along edge of second square, seven tags to each side.

Using a 1/2" seam allowance, stitch around outside edge of fleece square to attach tags.

Place embroidered square and "tag" square right sides together. Sew around outside edge following previous line of stitching on "tag" side. Leave a small opening for turning binky right sides out.

Trim corners, turn binky right sides out, push out corners and hand stitch opening closed.


  1. I think this is a great project to use up all those bits and pieces of ribbon that you just can't bear to get rid of b/c you KNOW that you could use it on something! I love the tutorial - thanks bunches!

  2. I agree, a great way to use up those bits and pieces.

    I'd suggest trying using satin on one many little ones seem to love rubbing on satin!

  3. I like the idea of satin on one side-my children liked the satin edges of their blankets so much , they wore them out! :^)
