Last week Wednesday, I promised I would share my pattern for pacifier clips to hold baby's pacifier to clothing or a diaper bag so that mom/dad/caregiver can find it quickly. A pacifier sure comes in handy when baby is very upset. Knowing where the pacifier is located, is critical for mommy and daddy's sanity! The idea is the snap connects to babies clothing and the loop end connects to the pacifier with a snap closure. I used size 16 pearl snaps from Snap Setter and pacifier clips that I purchase on Amazon- see resources near the end of this post.
What you will need to make your pacifier clip:
How to Make A Pacifier Clip:
3. Press the long sides 1/4" in after the short ends have been pressed
4. Fold in 1/2 , press well along the length and pin
5. Top stitch with matching thread a scant 1/8" from all edges all the way around your fabric
6. Grab your clip and insert your fabric strip through the bottom of the clip as shown below , pulling about 1.5" of excess fabric to the back.
7. Top stitch a rectangle with an X through it as shown below to support the clip. Start sewing about 1/4" down from the clip
8. Loop the opposite end down about 1.75" and add a snap closure to the other end as per the instructions of the snap manufacturer - see below
