A Ribbon Baby Blog Hop!


Welcome to the May Arts Ribbon Baby Blog Hop! Since our Queen of the Ribbonista's (Bethney) recently had a precious little bundle of joy, we have all been gushing over everything baby! What an exciting reason to hold a blog hop! 

I seem to always be in hairbow mode because making hairbows for little girls and babies is so much fun!!! I decided to make a cute headband along with some barefoot sandals. These are all the trend right now! I made up a little tutorial on how to make the barefoot sandals. They are so quick and easy to create, what an adorable and inexpensive baby gift! 

You will need: Ribbon flowers, elastic, and some little jewels for the centers. 

First, cut your elastic. For newborn size cut the elastic around 9". For 6-9 month size, cut the elastic at about 11". 

Make a figure 8 with the elastic as shown and hot glue.

Cut out your flower. To attach it, you will need a felt circle. This makes the backing soft on the baby's feet. Ialso use these on the backs of the headbands as well.

Glue in place like so. 

Add a little rhinestone center or leave plain, either way, these are adorable! 

I didn't have a little baby to model these cute little accessories, but if you google search "baby barefoot sandals" you will see several examples of how they are worn! 

Don't forget to visit all of the ribbonista's along the hop! Just by hopping and commenting along the way, you are entered to win 3 spools of May Arts Ribbon of your choice from the baby section here: https://www.mayarts.com/browse/industries/baby/
