I have a lot of extra fabric just sitting around my craft room. I mean… a lot. So, I thought I would start doing some smaller projects to help get rid of my stash. Enjoy this tutorial!
2. Cut your fabric so that it is 15″ long and just under 4″ wide (mine was 3 and 7/8 inches wide).
3. Fold the fabric in half lengthwise (hotdog style) and iron to create a crease.
4. Unfold to show the underside and the crease.
5. Fold one side towards the center crease and iron.
6. Fold the other side towards the center crease and iron. Make sure they do not get folded all the way to the crease.
7. Fold the end over and iron to form a crease. Do this on both ends.
8. Fold down the center crease again and iron the entire piece flat.
9. Sew around the entire rectangle.
10. Clip any hanging threads. Make sure that everything is secure.
11. Open your package of suspender/mitten clips.
12. Fold one of the ends through the clip, leaving about 1 inch of material as a “tail.” Sew it.
13. Sew the rest of the “tail” down to secure. The pictures below show the back and front.
14. Identify your snaps (left: male, right: female, not pictured: prongs). I always have trouble figuring out which is the back side and which is the correct side of the female part of the snap. Some people talk about the part the sticks up, but the snaps that I use don’t have an easily-identified side like this. I’ve finally figured it out, though. There is a side that looks like flower petals inside. That is the “correct” side of the snap, and the other side is the backside that will attach to the prongs.
15. Using your snap attacher (I’ve used a few, and I prefer the SnapSetter tool), attach the snaps so that there is a little fold-over.
16. There you go! One pacifier clip ready to go!
You can tell that I got on a roll and made a few. Once you make one, you will realize how easy it is. What a great baby shower gift!
