Eli is a binky kid…and I am ok with that. The problem is that every time I pick him up, he spits the binky out, and it lands on the dirty floor. At home, it is not such a big deal, but out and about, it is more of a problem. I looked at Babies R Us and Target for ‘binky leashes’ but either didn’t like the selection, or didn’t like the price. I knew I could make something much cheaper and at least as cute on my own. Here is what I came up with:
What you need:
Ribbon–make sure the ribbon is not thicker than the loop on the end of the clip.
Thread and needle, or sewing machine
Clips—the ones I got are called suspender clips. I got them at JoAnnes Fabrics.
I like the way these turned out. Like I said, I would use a shorter piece of ribbon next time. I will also be on the look out for smaller clips. These were labeled as 1″ and they are definitely more than big enough.
