  • anyone make taggy's?

    hi ya

    Just wondered if anyone else makes taggy's?? and if so how do you make yours lol

    I have been using the machine to stitch the tags on to one side 1st of all then putting the 2 sides together stitching those together and leaving a small hole so i can turn inside out (the right way) then hand stitching the hole up...

    Is this the normal way?

    Many thanks
    Sarah

    I have never made one but I would lay my fabric, right side up, lay all the taggies on and pin in place them put second piece of fabric on top, right side down and stitch leaving a small hole to turn.
    Pretty much what you are doing I quess!

        I agree. I would also top stitch around the edge once turned the right way out. Makes them double secure and less likely to be loosened by little nibblers!

            I thought I was the only one and decided against asking for fear of looking stupid, well more stupid than I usually am

              I make mine basically the same as you. But when sewing the tags onto the first side I secure each tag on with 3 layers of sewing - I stitch forward over it, back then forward again.

              When the 2 layers are sew together that make each secured 4 times.

              Once turned RS out - I then topstich around the edge - so this gives 5 layers of stitching to each tag.

              This is a taggie - basically a little comfort blanket with satin ribbons around for little ones to fiddle with!

                hi ya sew2bed (having a blond moment and totally forgotten ur name!)

                I'm a bit scared if sewing around the edge once its right side up as it may look wonkey donkey lol...
                But i will make sure i stitch over the tags a few more times b4 stitching both sides 2gether.

                Here's a link to taggies i have done so far and a description of what they are

                      I used to sell taggys on ebay and they are a good seller. I make mine the same way as you make yours and if you top stitch too that makes each tag sewn 3 times. Don't worry about the odd wonkey tag it adds to the uniqueness(sp).

                      One thing I would point out is I once had all my listings removed because I used the word taggie once in one of my listings, so stick to taggy or "like a taggie" and you'll be fine.

                        OOOOO, they are lovely!

                        Is Taggie a brand? If so, like mummycupcake said, you would get your listing removed if you used taggie. BUT, you would also get your listing removed if you wrote "like taggie" because you are key word spamming. You MIGHT get away with Taggy but again, if someone objects to you using it, it can be removed as spamming. Ebay is a feckin pain sometimes!

                            I also had mine removed from ebay for same reason,BUT i also stopped mkaing them beause i found it too difficult to get them safety tested i know some on ebay have been tested but for me it was too expensive so be careful when selling them as you are liable if anything goes wrong with them i had a huge debate made about me on the forum Bounty as people were saying they were dangerous because i hadnt had them safety tested and that so much could go wrong with them being handmade.

                              I think they're a fab idea. How stupid though that they need to be safety tested. It's only a bit of fabric for goodness sake! My son always had a silky ribbon when he was a toddler and he survived, despite the fact that it wasn't sewn onto anything.
