No-Sew Pacifier Clip Tutorial.

It seems as though I know about a zillion people who are having babies right now.  It’s always fun to go shopping for baby shower gifts, but it’s even more fun to make one yourself!  Here’s a very easy project that originally posted at Happy Brown House.  Anyone can make it and it’s sure to impress your friends!

What you’ll need:
  • 1/2 inch velcro
  • scissors
  • hot glue gun
  • grosgrain ribbon (about 12 inches)
  • one mitten clip (they come in packs of two)
Step One: Cut a piece of velcro to match the width of your ribbon.

Step Two: Apply hot glue to the edge of one end of the ribbon and fold over about 1/2 inch.  Press firmly to adhere.  This creates a “hem” of sorts.

No Sew Pacifier Clip at Step Three: Take the velcro (both sides stuck together) and glue one side to the edge of the “hem”.  Place hot glue on the second side and fold the ribbon over about 1 1/2 inches.  Press firmly.

Step Four: On the other end of the ribbon, place hot glue along the edge and fold over 1/4 inch, just as you did the first side.  Feed the ribbon up through the back side of the mitten clip.  Place hot glue along the edge, fold over, and press firmly to secure the mitten clip to the ribbon.
 You now have a completed No-Sew Pacifier Clip! 
It’s the perfect little extra for a baby shower gift.

    Do you use regular hot clue or the low temp glue since it’s ribbon? I got the low temp glue and started making some testers but I’m not sure it’s gonna hold with a baby yanking on it, etc.

  3. @Amber I used regular hot glue for this. I haven’t had any feedback about how well it holds up yet. No news is good news as far as I’m concerned. :)

    Just thinking what if the pacifier does not have any openings to hold the clip.

    My LO would have this pulled apart in five minutes and the velcro would be a choking hazard. It’s a cute idea and I don’t want to be negative, but it should be noted for the safety of a child and so that no one tries to sue you after doing this tutorial. We live in a sue happy society!
