DIY Sewing Pacifier Clip

I came up with this project when I was finishing a baby shower gift.  Fortunately I found all the supplies in my sewing stash, but if I make any more I will have to buy more clips.  This is a great beginners project and great for baby shower gifts or customizing your own baby pacifier clip.  I thought about using elastic to make ruffles (that's why you see elastic in the picture), but decided against it for the first time.  Maybe I will play around with alternative versions for my etsy shop or future gifts.

Elastic hair band
Matching thread

All seams 1/4 in


1.  Measure your fabric to the length you would like.  I used 14 inches long and about 2 3/4 inches wide rectangle.

2.  Fold lengthwise (your piece should still measure 14 inches long), right sides together.  Pin and Iron if needed.

3.  Sew along the lengthwise seam, you just folded.  Do not sew the ends.

4.  Turn right-side out.  Iron.

5.  Fold the edges inward about 1/4 inch, so you have a nice seam.  Iron.

6.  Place one end of the fabric and loop through the hair band.  Fold edge over so both sides of the fabric are now touching.

7.  Sew over edge.  Repeat in a second spot about 1/4 inch above previous seam if desired.

8.  Place the other end of the fabric through the end of the clip.  Fold edge over (just as step 6).

9.  Sew edge just like step 7.
