Emery's Taggie Minky

Today I decided to attempt my first taggie minky and used the Princess as my guinea pig. Since pink is her signature color, I chose pink and brown. It wasn't really hard, just a little time consuming because I wanted it to be perfect! It's not perfect, but it turned out pretty good. It's about 13x13 inches, one side is soft pink minky material, and the other side is brown chenille. The tags are about 1 1/2' long, double looped, and are either grosgrain or organza ribbon. I think the next one will be easier since I know what steps to take. Really, once the ribbons are pinned and sewn on, it's not very bad. Definitely a learning experience, but a good one! In fact, I'm ready to make a boy one for an upcoming baby shower for Jeff's cousin's wife! Best part was, the Princess seems to really like it!!!!

The picture doesn't really show the pink all that well, but I was trying to hurry so I could post this. Maybe if you click on it bigger, it'll show better. :o)

As an added bonus, here's Princess Emery nice and clean after a bath and happily jumping in the pooperoo (as we call it). Just look at that blond hair and those blue eyes, we are in so much trouble when she's older!!! Thank goodness I have her Daddy and Chase, I'm pretty sure they'll be watching out for her!

I attempted one when Cadence was little, but yours looks MUCH better than mine did (and softer, too!) I think I waited too long to make Cadence's, because she didn't really care for it much at all. Actually, I'm not even sure where it is at the moment...

It looks great, and I can't wait to see you (hopefully) soon!!!
