Although there's a long list of why fabric baby gates are a bad idea for the top of the stairs, they can be a great way to help keep small climbers from making their way back up from the bottom when you turn your head for a moment. They're also a good solution for awkward stairs where traditional baby gates don't work. Kathy of Merriment Design is the go to lady for all kind of household crafts and ingenious ideas. This time she's whipped up a fabric baby gate. A little batting, fabric and ribbon ties and this project can be made in an evening.
