I’ve been hoarding this super cute ribbon for ages and after see how expensive pacifier clips were (not to mention how ugly) I decided to make my own. And let me tell you this was way easier and faster than going to the store to fetch one.

Step by step tutorial for how to make a binkie or pacifier clip.

What You Need

  • 16-20 inches of ribbon (if your ribbon is cute on both sides you only need half that)
  • Suspender Clip (I used this kind but if I did it again I’d use this kind)
  • 1 Snap (you can use sew on kind on clamp kind like I did)

What to Do

Note that my ribbon has a pretty front and a messy back so I needed to fold my ribbon in half. If your ribbon is nice on both sides you won’t need it folded over just fold the ends and sew instead if you want to use less ribbon.

  1. Thread your ribbon through your suspender clip so that it is folded almost in half wrong sides together with 2 inches hanging over on one end.
  2. Tuck that end under and fold over the other raw edge enclosing and pin.
  3. Sew that end down.
  4. Sew a stitch along the edge of the suspender clip.
  5. Pin the two layers of ribbon together and sew down both sides.
  6. Now add the snaps to the other end and you’re good to go!

Kinda silly easy right? And if you’re wondering where I got such cute ribbon this was from Kitschycoo who also sells the cutest knits too.

And added bonus is that the suspender clips are crazy strong but at the same time won’t poke holes in clothes or tear. Teddy has tried as hard as he could to rip off this clip to no avail. The ugly store bought one I have he could rip off like it was nothing!
