Making a “No Sew” Leash for a Toddler Cup with KAM Snaps

A while back, I tackled making a Leash for a toddler cup.  My toddlers love to chuck food, cups, dishes, toys, you name it they will throw it from their highchair.  KAM Snaps to the rescue!

With a couple minutes and a few supplies, you can make this handy Leash and eliminate a least one thing from flying through the air.

Only 4 days left in our Professional KAM Plastic Snap Press Giveaway, don’t forget to ENTER:

Supplies:

Cup Lease pic 1

Instructions:

1.  Measure off a piece of Grosgrain ribbon that is long enough to wrap around both the arms of the high chair, around the cup and enough length for your child to lift the cup to their mouth comfortably.  I went with 5′ but 4 1/2′ would have been enough.

2.  The ribbon I was using was made of polyester so I used a lighter to seal the ends of the ribbon so it doesn’t fray.  (If you are unsure, you may want to practice on a scrap piece if this is your first time or you are unsure of the what the material is made of.)

3.  To make the ends more secure and long lasting, I folded the ribbon over about 1/2″ to help reinforce the ends and pushed the cap through.

4.  Install the KAM Snap at each end.

5.  Measure or wrap the ribbon around the arms of the highchair and install a snap where the ribbon intersects.  On my highchair it was 8″ but each brand will vary.  Install a KAM Snap on each end about 8″ (or your measurement) in from the end.

6.  Install the ribbon on your highchair, put a Toddler Cup in the ribbon and pull until you have two equal lengths.  Now pinch the ribbon loosely together around the cup, loose enough to allow for different cup sizes but tight enough to hold the cup well.  Install a set of snaps at the point where the ribbon met.

7.  Installed it should look like this.

8.  Tada!  Enjoy your throw-free cup zone!  My toddler was suspicion of it at first but after grunting at it for while 🙂 she happily settled into drinking from her cup and eating her snack.

No Sew Pacifier Clip KAM Clip 1 pic1

Instructions:

1.  Choose a 7/8″ or 3/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon, cut a 14″ to 16″ length of ribbon.  I did 7/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon and I cut it 16″ long so when it was completed it was approximately 12″ long.

2.  The ribbon I was using was made of polyester so I used a lighter to seal the ends of the ribbon so it doesn’t fray.  (If you are unsure, you may want to practice on a scrap piece if this is your first time or you are unsure of the what the material is made of.)

3.  Then I used a bit of Fabric Tac and folded over an 1″ of the ribbon back on itself to reinforce the ribbon and pressed it firmly and let it dry.  Repeat on the opposite end.

4.  Once dry, I installed a Cap and Socket in each end of the ribbon about 1/2″ from the edge.  I used Size 20 snaps for this tutorial but either Size 20 or Size 16 will work great.

5.  On the side that will hold the Enamel Clip I simply folded the ribbon over at the 1″ mark and installed a Cap and Stud where it would meet.  I, then, feed the Enamel Clip onto the ribbon and snapped it into place.  It may have been easier to thread on the pacifier clip before installing any Snap parts but I was able to feed it through without much trouble.

6.  Now on the side where the Pacifier will be attached, adjust the internal snap in a comfortable distance to accommodate the width of the handle.  I went an additional 1/2″ for the Pacifier, I used.

7.  Now snap the Pacifier in place, attach to your child’s shirt and go.

8.  Tada!  Happy Snapping!!!

6.  Put Hot Glue all around the tip of the Organza and press into the center of the White Felt circle backing.

7.  Like so and repeat around the circle until you fill it in.  It reminds me of the school craft we use to do with different colored tissue paper and glue to make a picture :).  I added a couple extra dabs of hot glue and brought some of the internal Organza petals closer together.

8.  Add a large dab of Hot Glue or E6000 to the back of the White Felt circle.
