Sippy Cup Straps- Take Two

I had previously tried to make some sippy cup straps (see the first attempt here) but my lack of rings led some improvising that did work at all as I had intened.  Oh well, you live you learn.  This time around I rounded up some rings off my daughters' outgrown ribbon belts.  Since the ribbon was still in perfect condition, I upcycled them into these new straps.  Alicen's design proved to the spot on and these are adorable.

I also finished up the set of little boys hats.  One in new baby size and one in two year old size.  They are so cute, I may make a set for my girls just because I love the color combination and the feel of the Berocco Comfort DK.

The straps are pretty fab, I love the different fabrics! I was too lazy to mess with different fabrics.

Love the hats too, adorable.

Honestly, had the belts not been completely intact after ring removal, I never would have bothered. Thankfully it was just as easy to add a handle and cup holder as it was to cut all the new strips. These work much better!
