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
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.

|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.
