I looooove this blanket and am planning on making it.<br><br><a href="http://rosylittlethings.typepad.com/TiramisuBlanket.pdf" target="_blank">http://rosylittlethings.typepad.com/TiramisuBlanket.pdf</a><br><br>
I worry about the safety of the ribbon though. Do you think there is any way to secure it so baby couldn't pull it up in loops?<br><br>
I really like the ribbon, it makes the blanket, ya know?

That's a beautiful blanket. I'm not sure how to handle the safety concern ... perhaps tacking down the ribbon at intervals around the perimeter? Hmm...

I'd just find some embroidery floss in the same color as the ribbon, and put a few discreet stitches on the loops to hold them in place. SOmething like that is going to be more for decoration, at least in my house, than actual use, since my kids just destroy their "b" anyway.

I made that blanket for a friend. Right now she's using it for her little one in his stroller when they go for walks. I'm thinking that when he gets older, she can just take the ribbon out. Also if she washes it, I recommended that she take the ribbon out first. I guess it just depends how much use the blanket gets.

Given that any blankets/bedding are a SIDS risk, most parents these days only use blankets in a supervised setting anyway (as in the stroller thing mentioned above). So it's probably fine, but if you're concerned, be sure to mention it to the mother and let her decide how to handle it.

I would guess that the blanket would be a "going out" blanket & mostly supervised, so it wouldn't be a big deal. I know I would save such a gorgeous blanket for when lots of people could enjoy it, instead of just me! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
