Here we go – tutorial 7 in the Celebrate the Baby Boy series – Pacifier Clips. They are super handy and easy to make. The hardest part for me was finding the suspender clips. Next time, I’ll order them on Amazon rather than drive to 3 stores looking for them.
What You Need
- a suspender clip
- 1 piece of fabric 15 inches x 2.5 inches
- matching thread
- Fray Check
- 1 small piece of velcro
Okay – first, grab your supplies. Here we are going to make 2 and the whole project took me about 20 minutes.
Press your rectangle and then fold it in half long ways.
Now serge, with right sides out, both sides together using the rolled hem setting.
Time for Fray Check. Dab a bit on each corner and then be sure to press. Clip the excess thread. Also, a little tip – I use a safety pin as my lid on the Fray Check, anything else seems to dry it out, even the original lid. Just at tip.
Next, time for the velcro. Place one piece (about 1 inch x 2 inches) right at the end. Place the coordinating piece of velcro 3 inches from the end. This is where the pacifier will be attached.
Now, at the other end – this is where you’ll permanently sew on the suspender clip. Feed the fabric though the suspender clip and top stitch in place about with about a 1 inch fold.
Also – top stitch a label in place.
Grab a pacifier and you’re all set.
I hope you enjoy your Sunday Funday – and visit back this week for the last few projects in Celebrate the Baby Boy.
One of my favourites is yet to come!
