I have made these.
I never used a ribbon LOOP, to me this is an unsafe factor (fingers go in and can get tightly twisted around the little fingers) I used a single length, and just knotted the ends....keeps little fingers safe from getting caught, but the little ones have a knot to grab onto! Not only have I used ribbon, but cording and rick rack, the thick type....all had knots at the end ..one or 2, depending if it was large enough for those little hands to grab......
The ribbon and other different textures are to enhance the tactile senses for the little ones.
Have fun making these.....they whip up so quick and easy...just remember to wash and preshrink your fabrics...especially if you are using 2 different kinds....(fannel, I like to wash in hot, dry in hot a couple of times so there is not much more shrinkage left)......Also washing and drying gets rid of some loose fluffies on fuzzy fabrics.....but sew with caution when sewing for babies...they like to snuggle things close to their faces.....
When you make these to gift, gift them in pairs....so that when one is in the laundry, the baby has a clean one to hang on to......

Have fun creating!

I made 2 of these blankets, satin on one side & fluffy baby sleeper material on the other, the loops should be no more that 2 1/2" just enough for the child to hook their finger through to carry around, or thumb - it seems thay they they LOVE to put their thumb through to suck it while going to sleep!

If you're concerned about the ribbon loops catching on something, you might want to sew them closed.

Isn't there some danger of the loops catching on things?

This is really cute. I might do these for baby gifts.

What a great an easy baby gift! I wasn't back sewing when my 3 boys were babies but they always loved to chew or suck on the tags of their blankets or whatever.

Babies love to feel satin.... I know both mine did, they used to rub it when they were settling down for sleep until they fell asleep. I wish I had thought of one of these back then!

Thanks for sharing! This is a great way to sew for my great-niece. I'm on my way to raid my ribbon stash! :o)
