Pacifier Clips

Happy Monday! I hope you are enjoying it, wherever you are. :-)

Paci Clips. I sure do wish that I had had a few of these when Bugaboo and Baby Girl were younger. If I thought she wouldn't pull it off and chase the dog with it, I'd try it on Baby Girl now. She is constantly dropping her pacifier.....or just seeing how far she can throw it. A friend that is due the end of this month, asked me if I could make a few for her new arrival, so this is what I came up with.

What You'll Need:

7/8" ribbon (16" lengths for each clip.. I got mine from All About Ribbon)
1" Suspender Clips (I got mine at Everything Ribbons in the pacifier supplies section)
Sewing Machine & Thread
Straight Pins

Now for the fun to begin! :-)

Cut your ribbon into 16" lengths. With the right side facing down, and the suspender clip upside down, slide one end of your ribbon through the slot at the end of the clip.

Ribbon cut into 16" lengths.

Ribbon and clip right sides down, and putting the end of the ribbon through the slot.

Next, fold the end of the ribbon down about half an inch, and then fold it down again, about an inch, pin it in place,  and using a zig-zag stitch, sew it in place.

The end folded over once at the end, and then folded over again and pinned in place.

Next, fold down the other end of the ribbon, about half an inch, and using the zig-zag stitch, sew it in place. This keeps the end from fraying.

Fold the same end down again, about 3/4 to 1 inch, take the hook side of your Velcro, cut to a 1 inch length, and lay that on top of the folded down end. I trimmed the edges of the Velcro, because it was about as wide as the ribbon.

Folding down the end again, after it was folded down once and sewn in place with a zig-zag stitch.

Placing the Velcro on the folded down ribbon, ready to sew in place with a straight stitch.

Velcro with the edges trimmed off.

After sewing the end with the Velcro in place, measure about 2 inches down from the bottom of the Velcro, and place the Loop side of your Velcro there, and stitch in place. Please make sure to back stitch on each part of this project, to make sure everything is securely sewn in place.

Both pieces of Velcro stitched to the ribbon, about 2 inches apart.

Finished pacifier clip.

That's it! You're done! Finished length is approximately 12".  This is a quick and easy project. Great for gifts, or for your own little one. There's so much ribbon to choose from in craft land, that the possibilities are almost endless. I know I say this a lot, but if any part of my explanation is confusing, please let me know. I can always add more photos if needed. I am a visual learner, so I love lots of photos!
