Fabric and Ribbon Binky Leashes

Brady (my newest nephew) asked me to make him some binky holders so he doesn’t lose his binky when he is out and about! 
Brady’s mama picked out the ribbon and clips (we found the clips on etsy for 35 cents each!) **Update—I found the mitten clips at JoAnns Fabric—actually they are on elastic strips used to hold the cover on the ironing board…8 in a package for $2! (50% off notions sale!). I found that fabric made the best straps, the ribbon is OK, but I like the fabric straps better. 
I used ponytail elastics to make the loop at the end on some of the straps and a few of them I just used a loop of ribbon.
Loving the polka dots and the camo!
Some of them I used iron on fusible tape instead of sewing the ribbons together and I am afraid they are a little stiff, so not sure they will be good.  They may be good to attach toys to the stroller or car seat too. 
I am just sure Brady will love them!
I am linking to these great parties!
