tag blanket, Easy beginner sewing project

 a gift for my sister-in-law.  I made this with fleece and fun ribbon.  This was a super easy project and would be a great starter sewing project.  Find a shape you love, make a pattern of it by blowing it up on your printer or free handing it, make eyes, beak, and wing sew the wing, eyes and beak on the front piece,  cut lots of fun ribbon, fold ribbon in half and hold in place with a pin, place the bird wrong sides facing (the way you want it to look when you are done) and sew around entire bird about 1/8th of an inch).  I left one ribbon tag in a loop for a hook to be hung.  I love the bright colors and the bird shape :)  Hope baby lillie loves it :)
