A little while ago, I was out with a friend who has a little one and she had the cutest pacifier clip. I asked her who made it for her and she said she bought it at a baby boutique. I took a closer look and decided it was a crafty project I was going to try. I didn’t use a tutorial for it but after I made it, I did a quick search and found the following tutorials: 1) Pacifier clip with snaps at This and That; 2) 8 paci clips for only a dollar at Ruffles and Stuff ; 3) Paci clips using fabric at So Simply Stephanie.
For this paci clip, I was trying to find the easiest and quickest way to knock it out and I certainly did. This pacifier clip took all of about ten minutes! I would love to make half a dozen of these for a baby shower gift. Since they are pretty inexpensive and quick to make, they make a perfect baby gift!
What you will need:
- A strip of grosgrain ribbon (I like the way this ribbon holds up a little better than satin) cut to the length you would like (my ribbon was 13 inches long)
- Sewing Machine and thread
- Suspender/Mitten Clips
What to do:
1. Slide one end of ribbon through the suspender clip and sew to the other side of ribbon. Before I sewed the ribbon into place, I folded the ribbon over 1/4 so that it had a clean edge to it. As you can see in the pictures below, I had the suspender clip facing the wrong way! I took the pictures before I realized what I did. Note to crafter: Be sure to pay attention to the way that the clip is facing before you sew! :-)
2. Fold over the edge on the other side of the ribbon so that it makes a clean edge. Stick one piece of velcro on the end of the ribbon and the other about an inch down. This is the side that will hold the pacifier!
3. Sew a line through the velcro so that it will stay attached to the ribbon.
That is it! Seriously, this is the easiest sewing project I have ever completed! I would show it to you with a paci attached to a baby, but my babies aren’t so baby anymore and I couldn’t locate a dolly pacifier in the pit we call Little S’s room so this picture will have to do!
