Fleece "tag" blankets
for pups of all ages!

by Diane

My dog Charlie is a 2 1/2 yr old shih tzu and he absolutely loves his fleece "tag" blankets. I have also made several for my friends pets and they always ask me for more!

Make as follows:
Depending on the size of the dog, you can decide what size tag blanket to make. For small dogs get approx 1 1/2 yds of fleece. For large dogs 2 yards fleece would be plenty. Cut in half and lay one piece on top of another. Measure each corner about 4x4 square and cut each corner square out and discard. Then cut strips around entire edge of blanket approx 1 inch apart and 1-2 inches in length and double tie each strip together. Tie the strips around entire blanket. Thats all there is to it. You can have a solid color fleece on one side and a cool print on the other. Charlie loves to drag his blanket around, play "drag me" and tug-o-war or simply cuddle up on it. They make great gifts too!
