DIY Pacifier Clips

  • 12″ x 4″ piece of Fabric
  • 11″ x 1″ piece of interfacing or lightweight fusible fleece (optional)
  • 4″ of 1/4″ or 3/8″ flat elastic
  • 1″/33 mm Pacifier Clips (also called “Suspender Clips” or “Mitten Clips”)
  • Pacifiers with handles

This tutorial uses two of the Compass Star prints (C12082-BLUE & C12082-NAVY) from my Winter Barn Quilts fabric collection from Riley Blake Designs. Ask for them where you love to buy fabric. 

Preparing the Fabric

CUT the fabric, interfacing and elastic. Choose your interfacing or lightweight fusible fleece depending on how flexible you want the holder to be. You can also make it without any interfacing, it’s all personal preference.

PLACE your fabric face down on the ironing board and PRESS both short ends over 1/4″.
PRESS in half the long way and open back up. (fig. 1)

PLACE the interfacing along the center fold and tuck it under the folded edges. (fig. 2)

FOLD the long raw edges in towards center fold and PRESS. (fig. 3)

FOLD in half and PRESS. (fig. 4)

Sewing the Pacifier Clip

FOLD the elastic in half and place it inside the folded fabric on one short end. (fig. 5) SEW across the edge 2-3 times to reinforce the elastic.

SEW all the way around the fabric strip approximately 1/8″ from the sides and then sew down the center. (fig. 6)

PLACE the fabric through the clip and folder over 1″. (fig. 7)

It’s that easy! Make them to coordinate with outfits, for all the holidays or just to get that scrap fabric stash a little bit lower.

If you make this or anything else with my fabric and post it online – tag me so I can see it!  I love to see what people create.
