This taggie is made from oh-so-soft felt, with ribbons to tug on in a variety of patterns and textures, and has a special crinkly layer!
1Begin by cutting out two pieces of fabric in an oval or round shape. This will be the taggie’s head.
2Cut out fabric scraps large enough to make the facial features. Iron these on to double-sided fusible webbing (Wonder Under). Flip over and trace the features. You can use a circle punch for the eyes. Cut out, then remove the paper backing. Iron on to the head.
3Add stitching around the mouth. I used a tight zig zag stitch. I also stitched on the eyes.
4Pin on 3-inch ribbon segments: fold ribbon in half so it makes a loop. Pin with the loop pointing inwards.
5Lay the other head piece on top of the face. Cut an oval out of the plastic bag, the same shape as the head. Layer this on top of the other fabrics. Sew together, leaving a small hole for turning.
6Cut notches around the seam so that it lies flat when turned right side out (don’t cut the seam). Turn, then poke out all the seams.
7Sew hole shut, and continue sewing around the perimeter to add a decorative top stitch.
