The easiest DIY pacifier clips

Hi everyone! I'm still in NJ and will be through the weekend. Josh is joining us on Saturday morning (yay!). We haven't seen him in over a week, so we're all looking forward to Saturday! I have my friend Amanda's bridal shower on Saturday too, so I'll just get to say hi before heading out the door!

I'm a bit busy for the rest of this week getting ready for her shower, but in the meantime, I thought I'd leave you with a really easy tutorial for pacifier clips. You might remember me sharing this tutorial for pacifier clips a while back, but this new one is even easier than that!


You'll need:

  • Suspender clips. I bought these.
  • Ribbon. 3/8" works best.
  • Needle and thread

First, cut your ribbon to about 20" long.



Slip one end of your ribbon through the clip. Make sure the right side of the ribbon is facing out with the front of your clip. Fold the end of the ribbon over the clip and hold it there.


Take the other end of your ribbon and line it up with the end of the ribbon that's already through the clip. Fold it over onto itself, and hold down.


Where the ribbons join will sort of make an "M" shape. (Sorry for the terrible pic!)


Now, just sew your ribbon together as close to the clip as possible. At first, I used my machine, but I found it was easier to do this by hand. After sewing, trim the excess ribbon.


That's it!







Really easy, and so cute...especially to give as a gift to a new baby!

Well, Audrey just woke up from her nap! I'll see you all soon!
