You may use 66” of ribbon or following instructions for fabric straps

Cut 2 strips of fabric approximately 4”X36”. Sew the 2; 4” ends together
right sides together making one long strip

Fold strip lengthwise in half, right sides together, sew ends as shown in
diagram leaving one spot open in center for turning, turn right side out
making sure you carefully push out all the corners, it helps if you clip the
corners first making sure you don’t cut the stitching. Pres it with an iron
making sure you press the opening shut the same width as the seams. Now
top stitch around the whole thing; which will close the opening at the same
time. If you don’t want to top stitch, then you may hand stitch the opening
