I got the idea to make the Monogram Taggie from this pin, which was orinally posted on Twelve Crafts til Christmas by Elizabeth. Great blog! When you read her first post from back in 2009 it sounds like where I am right now - i.e. having to google how to thread my sewing machine :)
So this is the one I made, again with the super cute star stitch that my sewing machine does. This was the 2nd thing I've made, and the stitches are not even at all. It is getting easier though.

The other side (which I didn't take a picture off - oops) is solid brown. And on the brown side I made the star stitch in white so it shows up. For those new to sewing like me, that just means I used a brown spool of thread and a white bobbin. This makes the brown stitches on the top, and white stitches on the bottom.
I also bought a package of 24 baby links to use on this and future taggies. Just loop a few through one of the ribbons near the top of the letter. Then it can hang down in a stroller/carseat. I also bought that little "Oball" with rattle to loop through the link as well.
I gave this to my hubby's coworker and his wife who just had their first little guy, Connor. I also made them a SUPER easy blanket, which I'll make another post for right now.
For step-by-step instructions, visit the blog I linked to at the top of this post - I didn't just want to copy and paste all of her steps :)
