Pacifier Clip Tutorial!
I didn't realize when I started this project that there were 400 other tutorials on the same thing. (oops!) But at least this tutorial is a little different-because you can make eight of them for $1! And cheap makes me happy. :o)
- fabric scraps
- ribbon or elastic scraps
- felt scraps
- a metal clip
1. Cut a 9" x 2.5" scrap of fabric, fold it over with right sides facing, and sew down one side.
2. Turn right-side-out and fold under one end and pin.
2. Turn right-side-out and fold under one end and pin.
3. Top stitch around three of the four ends, including your pinned edge, leaving the other end open.
4. Cut a 4" length of thin ribbon or elastic and pin the two ends inside your open seam, then sew it closed.
6. Use a butter knife or screwdriver to gently lift the tabs of the clips, and remove the elastic, replacing with the hemmed edge of your fabric strip. Bend the tabs back and firmly clamp them closed.
7. If you want to add something fancy, cut out some felt shapes and stitch them together with embroidery thread (or four layers of sewing thread), then stitch them to the end of the fabric strip or ribbon, covering the top of the metal clip.
And of course, you can use a 9" length of ribbon instead of fabric, which makes it even more quick and easy!
Cutting out the little shapes is so fun!
(Because of choking hazards, I would not recommend using buttons, or anything that could be popped off by little fingers!)
(I solicited of the mommies at church for a model-isn't she a little punkin??
I really need one of these....think I could get away with it??
Yeah, probably not. ;o)
Aw, how cute! I love the car so much for a little boy! And the flowers are so pretty.ReplyDelete
Very cute!! Thanks for the tute. And I'd totally rock the 'keyholder', haha! Though, I'd probably wear it on my pants instead. ;)ReplyDelete
love that pic of you disney :) haha. i am gonig to a baby shower tonight...this would be a perfect addition to my gift! thanks a ton!ReplyDelete
These are super cute! Kids can get away with anything. Too bad us grown-ups can't get away with them.ReplyDelete
You're awesome! That's a fabulous picture of you! Though there are a lot of other tutorials, this one will definitely work better for me, since the narrow elastic loop will fit my the only binky my little girl will take- the soothie. Thank you!ReplyDelete
How is that you can even make a pacifier clip look stylish? Too cute. :)ReplyDelete
Makes me wish I knew someone with a baby I could sew for.
Such a funny pic! Think I could use it for pens that I keep losing!ReplyDelete
question: where did you get those fantastic sunglasses? They make your sexy ducklips face that much better!ReplyDelete
The cute flower one makes me want a pacifier! Such a great tutorial! Thanks!ReplyDelete
Wow, that is VERY creative. I think I'll try to make some as gifts for my mommy friends. :)ReplyDelete
Maybe not on the clipped-to-your-shirt thing. But one could totally make a shorter 'pacifier clip' for keys and clip it to a waist band pocket top, or belt.ReplyDelete
You can so carry that look off. Work it, sister!!!!!!ReplyDelete
I actually love the keys idea. How cute clipped onto the top of your handbag. Keys always within reach. VOILA! Great post :DReplyDelete
I think your creativity (on attaching it to your blouse) was awesome!! I think I will make something similar to clip to my purse or tote bag!!ReplyDelete
I'm totally agreeing with the others. You could make it shorter and clip it to your belt loop on your jeans. I don't need a pacifier clip but I absolutely need one for my keys! Right now I use a carabiner clip that's totally tacky. ~~running off to sewing machine~~ReplyDelete
AHHHHH!!! Give me that stinking sailboat one!!! LOVE IT!ReplyDelete
This is my favorite tutorial for these things! I was making one last week, and had to make something up because I didn't like them all. No snaps to set, or silly things like that. I love this, and will use this soon!ReplyDelete
No little ones in my house no more but it's a great tutorial!ReplyDelete
I have a question for you do you pre-wash your fabrics before you start a project.
thank you so much for this! i love how cheep and easy it is, and they are so cute!ReplyDelete
I think it would be great to attach your keys in your purse...no more searching around the bottom for your keys...they'd always be attached :)ReplyDelete
LOVE your model! xo

I like the elastic idea, I usually use velcro for part that you loop through the pacifier, but I think I'll try your way next time.ReplyDelete
i love them!!!!
I have a daughter and even I want the car one! SOOOO CUTE!ReplyDelete
Love that you tried to make it work for big girls too!
Love it! Adding the flowers and shapes is a great idea.ReplyDelete

Thanks for sharing Disney! I'm always wearing my daughter's pacifier clips when she's playing too! I'd like to find a pattern that will fit the MAM brand pacifiers. Those take a plastic gasket around the main part. I haven't been able to find this piece yet. Any luck on your end?ReplyDelete
Cutest binky clips ever! I'm sending my readers your way!ReplyDelete
Your blog just wreaks of summer goodness, I love your pic at the end, that is so something I would do, I never have enough hands for my keys! :)ReplyDelete
so cute!! I've seen a few tutorials for these, but this is the first one I want to try!! I think I could actually do it! And my little mini needs one, for sure.ReplyDelete
So cute! I don't have a sucky using child so I may have to use it for my keys too ;) ha ha! loved that pic!ReplyDelete
You look so cute! My baby doesn't use a pacifier, but I also want to make some for my keys.ReplyDelete
I nominated you for a sweet blog award, since yours is basically the best! check out the details on allaboutmommies.blogspot.comReplyDelete

I love it as a key holder! It would save me so much hunting around in my purse. ha!ReplyDelete
I love that last picture of you! it's hilarious! thank you!ReplyDelete
It instantly hit me that I need to make of for myself - so that I can find my keys in my bag!!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing your tutorial:)

You might be bringing paci's back to date night!! Great tutorial.ReplyDelete
So much cuter than the one I made, definitely going to do it!ReplyDelete
To me, it truly doesn't matter that there's 400 other tutorials on it... yours is the one I saw, and it gave me great ideas!! :D I could have Googled it, but I never thought of it... ;) So thanks! :)ReplyDelete
I love these!!!! I have a niece and nephew on the way and these are going to be perfect little gifts!! I live 10 hrs away so I like to send "little surprises" every now and again. Perfect, thanks!ReplyDelete
These are the cutest clips ever! Thanks so much, I'll be linking.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the great tutorial. I will be making one for my nephew and your site is going to be added to our blog list!
argh, finally a tutorial even I can do and my dollar tree doesn't carry the clips! :( lolReplyDelete
these are adorable! thanks for sharing!! I gave you an award!ReplyDelete
So funny! I just rediscovered sewing and these are so CUTE. I could use myself, but like you I don't think I could get away with it! LOL Thanks!ReplyDelete
I featured this fabulous idea with a roundup of baby ideas celebrating Baby Week. Here's the link:ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for the inspiration!
I have never posted on a blog so I am not sure how this works but I love the pacificer clip with the "burnt" flower edge. How did you create that look?ReplyDelete
There are other pacifier clip tutorials out there, but yours adds something important that the others don't have: where to get the clips inexpensively. I wouldn't have thought to use ironing board clips - clever. I'm going to be adding your tutorial to my www.make-homemade-gifts.com baby gift page which I am getting ready.ReplyDelete
too cute. i am so gonna start doing this. i think your adorable by the way!:)ReplyDelete
Love this! I mentioned your tutorial as part of my Pinterest Project!ReplyDelete
How do you charge the pacifier? Do you need to make one for each paci?ReplyDelete
