Lay one fabric piece, right side up and arrange your ribbon pieces around the fabric however you like.
Having your ribbon facing in, fold each ribbon piece and pin to the edges of the fabric.
Lay your other fabric piece on top, right side facing in.
Pin together and sew around the edges using a 1/2 inch seam allowance. Be sure to leave a 4-5 inch gap on one side for flipping right side out.
Next, trim your ribbon pieces (not too much, only if they are over 1/2 inch long).
And clip your corners.
Flip the blanket right side out, poking out your corners.
Whoops! This is why I am still a beginner.. Ha! Luckily, babies don't care about crooked ribbon tags.
Press the edges with an iron (if you used minky like I did, try a lower setting).
Be sure to press the open side under and flat as well. Then pin the opening shut.
Sew a top stitch all around the perimeter of the blanket so everything lays flat.
That's all there is to it.
A bright and cheery new toy!
