Binky, paci, bobo, dummy, chupon, soother….whatever you call a pacifier, it’s sad when one falls on the floor. A simple solution is to make a pacifier clip out of your fabric scraps! Whip one up in just 5 minutes for that family with a new baby. I’m making one for a baby shower gift along with a diaper bag full of baby must-haves, such as handmade bibs, an awesome burp cloth, and additional baby essentials.How to make your own pacifier clip

Here’s how to make a pacifier clip in no time at all!


  • 2″ X 10.5″ cotton fabric
  • 1 KAM Pacifier Clip (affiliate)
  • One complete plastic snap (two caps, one socket and one stud). KAM plastic snaps (affiliate) used for this project.
  • coordinating thread
  • sewing supplies


  1. Measure and cut a piece of fabric 2″ X 10.5″.
  2. rotary-cut-strip-for-pacifiFold your fabric strip in half (inside-out) and press with an iron, so it measures 1″ wide.
  3. press-pacifier-clip-strapSew along the raw edge with 1/4″ seam and sew one end
  4. Turn your strip of fabric right-side out using a Loop Turner or a bamboo skewer and straw. Iron the strip of fabric again.
  5. Fold in the fabric along the end that was not sewn. Thread one KAM pacifier clip through and fold down 1 1/4″. Use a narrow zig-zag stitch (also known as applique stitch) to secure the fabric down. This clip will attach to the baby’s clothes.
  6. insert-clip-and-sew-pacifieAttach your KAM plastic snap at the other end of your pacifier clip. This side will hold the pacifier. Install your socket 1/2″ down your strap and install your stud 3 1/2″ down your strap. If you are new to plastic snaps, check out this post for tips.
