It could have gone straight to the trash can. But I've been in a recycling mood lately, and I thought to myself: "this is perfectly good fleece! I'm sure I can use this for something!"
A while ago, I saw an awesome idea over on Little Hands, Big Work to make a Stroller Strap. So, with the fleece in hand, I made one. Fleece is an awesome material to work with, because you don't have to hem the edges. So, I just cut some strips out of the fleece, tied them together, and made a loop on the end.
I'm going to tie the other end onto LB's stroller. While we are walking in places that I don't want LM to run wild, I will have him hold onto the strap to stay close by me. We actually tried it out at the store yesterday and it worked pretty well. I love that it keeps him near and teaches him self-control without having to completely harness him.
