Tutorial: Sippy Cup Leash

This post has been sitting in my draftbox for the longest time but I didn’t have the time to photograph the steps to this tutorial. Finally as I need to make a few more of these leashes, I made some time to document the steps. Sometime last year, the cousin-in-law requested for a few of these leashes for one of my favourite boy. These leashes hold on to sippy cups, toys and such, prevents your baby from throwing them all over the floor and you from picking them up. A leash that is full of win!

Ribbon 1 yard, velcro, D ring, lighter and usual sewing supplies.

1. Cut the ribbon into 2 pieces: 12″ (30cm) and 24″ long (60cm). I am using inches here because the ribbons I bought is sold by yards and I wanted about x and 2x in length.

2. Lightly brush the ends of the ribbon against the lighted lighter to prevent fraying. Be careful not to burn the ribbon.

Processed with Moldiv4. Loop the longer ribbon through the loop that you just created, fold over and sew to secure.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset5. Make a loop from the other end of the longer ribbon by folding about 10cm up. Sew to secure.

6. Cut the velcro pieces: 7cm of the rough prickly side. Approximately 17cm of the furry side.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset7. Align the prickly velcro on the free end of the shorter ribbon. Sew around the edges to secure.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset8. Align the furry velcro beside the prickly velcro. I like the furry velcro to take up the rest of the shorter end, which measures about 17cm after aligning the prickly side. Sew around the edges to secure.
