Pacifier Clips are a quick and easy project to make to use or give as a gift.  A pacifier attaches easily to the loop end.  The clip attaches securely onto a baby bib, clothing or infant carrier.

Materials needed:

  • Scrap of fabric
  • elastic or ribbon
  • metal clip

See materials list for links to all of the items used.

  • Turn both short ends over 4/8″ and press.
  • Fold in half lengthwise right sides together and clip.
  • Stitch along the entire length using a 4/8″ seam to make a tube.
  • Press seam open as shown.

Turn the tube right side out.  There are several tools that can be used to turn a tube.  I use an unsharpened pencil.

  • About 1/2″ from the bottom of the tube, begin to make a well into the tube.
  • Put the eraser end of the pencil into the well.
  • Begin to push the pencil into the inside of the tube using the eraser to grip the fabric.
  • Continuing pushing the fabric and gathering it on the pencil until it starts to poke through the other side.
  • Pull on the inner layer until it is completely right side out.
  • Press.

Tip:  I like to use the blunt end against my hip as I pull and gather the fabric onto the pencil.

Attach the Loop

Make a variety of pacifier clips to give as gifts.  Olive drab and camo fabrics make fun clips for baby boys.  A touch of lace is a nice addition for a baby girl.

These clips can be easily made from the scraps of  the Easy DIY Burp Cloths.  Make both for a complete gift.

 

 

My name is Ana Sullivan. I began my blog, The Lost Apron, because people would ask me for advice on parenting. My only qualifications for giving advice is that I have been there and I am proud of who my children have become. I have a daughter in college, a son and another daughter that are college graduates who are working and living on their own. I have been married for almost 30 years to a dream of a husband.

I have been a working mom, a part-time-work-at-home mom, and a stay-at-home mom. Although I have preferred being the SAHM, I try to write my blog in a way that would encourage all moms to be better moms. I hope to be the mentor mom to the young mom and the friend to the older moms and grandmothers. You can visit me over at PinterestInstagram, and Facebook.
