DIY: Pacifier Clip

I've had a few comments over the last month regarding Brody's binky/pacifier clips. Specifically the ones for the Soothie™ brand pacifiers. For anyone who uses them, you're already aware that they do not have the normal ring handle that other brands have so there's nothing to hook to clip to.

Thankfully, my mom discovered that it's easy enough to adhere the clips onto the silicone nub and she also made some cute custom pacifier clips for Brody.

Luckily, a single-hole punch is enough to put a small hole is that otherwise useless handle on any silicone pacifier.  

Using any ribbon, wide or narrow, sew a small piece of velcro to one end and another 4" or so further down.... just far enough down to loop through the pacifier and back around. Mom cut the ribbon roughly 10-12" long, but make it however long you see fit.

On the other end of the ribbon, attach a Dritz mitten/suspender clip. These can be found at Joann Fabrics in a two pack for $2.99. Now you can make as many pacifier clips as you want for a lot less than you can buy them for... as well as find a way to secure ring handle-less pacifiers to your little one.
