So I have been wanting to design a bib that uses my fun plastic clips I use on my binky leashes. This led to me thinking hey, I can make it to work for babies and toddlers. This led to hey I can attach my ribbon with a snap so it will rotate. This led to hey, I need as much ribbon as my binky leashes take…which led to a super fun, multi pupose baby item! There are so many uses for the MyMee. (which I named based on the fact that Chloe calls blankets her “me” and sammi was holding one like the perfect little baby blanket)

You can easily interchanged the straps and lovey portions to match your mood. The leash included with the MyMee is the same as my other pacifier leashes.

To use as a binky leash, toy leash, or blanket leash remove ribbon from the fabric piece. To hold a binky or toy, loop the end of the robbin through the item and simply snap shut then attach to fabric or baby using the plastic clip. To use as a blanket leash loop the end around your stroller, or car seat and use the plastic clip attached to the blanket. To use as a baby or toddler bib simply snap the leash to the fabric and feed the ribbon behind baby then clip the plastic clip to the appropriate side. To use as a spit rag or lovey clip, have the leash snapped to the fabric and the plastic clipped to they baby or car seat, and use or love as needed. Can also be used as a lovey or spit/snot rag without the leash.

The leash/strap is made using a cute ribbon with ruffly edges and a strip down the center. The plastic clip used, clips right on to any outfit or item and the small plastic teeth keep the leash secure without ruining anything. The clip is sewn into a loop of ribbon. The snap allows for easy removal of your child’s pacifier or quick attachment to the fabric. This leash works with all types of pacifiers given the appropriate adapters. Leash measure approximately 9 inches from tip of the plastic clip to the tip of the closed ribbon, and about 12 inches with the snap open. The fabric portion is a cotton blend on one side and a flannel on the other. The flannel allows absorbance without added bulk. It is topped stitched, and has just the one snap on it.

they are getting much easier to sew as i go, and now that i have the pattern for sure i am just doing them in batches…have a handful finished and a bunch that just need to be top stitched. i made the pattern from a bib of my daughters that i liked and just left room for the seams. i am going to make matching burp clothes…though i dont have any of those to make patterns from…so i will just have to freehand it! the taggie bib was fun to make, i have a matching one in my pile that needs to be top stitched…thats the only grosgrain ribbon i had on hand…so need to buy more so that i can make more taggie bibs. the only thing i need now is either velcro or snaps for the back.
