May Arts:: Ribbon Baby Hop

May Arts Ribbon is run by the fabulous Ribbon Lady and today the Ribbonistas are helping to celebrate the arrival of the Ribbon Lady's new baby!

I created a door latch cover in a pretty, feminine design made from the amazing Cotton Blend with Vintage Inspired Print line in 2.5".

I started by cutting two four inch lengths of the ribbon in the Pink Floral Print (468-25-17) and put some cotton batting in between. Then I cut two four inch lengths of the 5/8" Elastic Ribbon in Light Pink (465-58-17) as well.

I then made a loop on each short end of the ribbon base with the elastic ribbon and stitched a border. I'm not a great sewer, so this simple task was quite welcome!

You just slip the elastic loop on one side of the door handle and the other loop on the other side. This squishes the door latch back into the door and when the door closes, it doesn't make a sound.

There are many different styles in the Cotton Blend with Vintage Inspired Prints, some perfect for boys and others gender neutral, so I know this will be my go-to baby gift for the future.

Here's the line up for yesterday and today! Make sure to stop by the May Arts Blog for more details and prize information!
