So I was hanging out with my favorite 1 year old twins this weekend and discovered that my darling Jamie is obsessed with tags. The tag on a commercial blanket. Flipping over the throw rug to find the tag. This girl loves tags. Who am I to judge?
I had seen some mini-quilts on line focused on the idea that lots of babies like tags. And the concept of Mr Taggit was born.
I cannot say Mr Taggit without throwing in a Northern Midwestern accent. (throw in a y before the a and drag it out the"a" a bit?)
This is a police sketch of Mr Taggit.
The color scheme was set.
I found a little bit of gold satin ribbon in the stash, and about a yard of some glorious silk green/brown. My sole investment in this project was 2 rolls of wide yellow satin and gold grograin ribbon (half price). I threw in 1.5 yards of the wide ric-rac since I thought the texture would be great.
FYI, the final tag count is 77.
