Rotary Blanket Tags
$ .65 = 1 SPECIAL TAG
$ .70 = 1 SPECIAL TAG + HELP W/CREDIT CARD FEES (Optional)
YOU DO NOT NEED TO PURCHASE TAGS IF YOU ARE PURCHASING FLEECE BLANKET KITS. A tag is already attached to each kit blanket.
ATTACHING TAGS TO YOUR BLANKETS
If you will be donating your blankets in your community, the special tags will need to be SEWN onto the backs of the blankets you make before they are donated.
- Tags cannot be ironed on; doing this will melt the tag's ink onto your iron.
- We also discourage using glue to attach the tags. The glue will melt when the blanket is laundered and placed in a heated dryer.
Do you know how to sew? Here is a brief video about sewing on a tag.
You don't know how to sew? Ask friends, family, neighbors or co-workers if they have a sewing machine or know how to sew. Often you will find someone who you didn't know had this talent! You can also ask your local sewing or fabric shop to help as well.
Order your tags below. Please let us know your club name and district number too.

WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR FINISHED BLANKETS
Our goal is to donate blankets to children in foster care in the area in which the blankets were made. When you finish your blankets, please find your local children’s services or agency at this link (DELIVERING BLANKETS) to find a location to donate near you!
Please contact Jessica Rudolph with any questions about ordering your tags - firstname.lastname@example.org or 614-530-3327.
Our special tags, attached to the back of each blanket, are very important. We encourage blanket makers to sign their first name on the tag and write a short, encouraging note so the child knows who made the blanket just for them and to give each blanket even more of a personal touch.
When the child writes their name on the tag, it will be easier for others in the foster home to identify the blanket's owner and increase the chances of the blanket staying with the child if they must move between foster homes.
Thank you for this additional support for our mission to provide each child in foster care with a blanket of "their very own," including a tag with their name!
