DIY Sew Pacifier Clips

Wow, looking back at these photos make me realize how much he's grown since I took them! Anyway, my cute son, Connor, is obsessed with his BFF - the pacifier. We always make sure he has one with him at all times. I got a couple pacifier clips for my baby shower, but I get sick of seeing the same ones all the time. Why not make a few of my own?
I based my measurements on the pacifier clips we already had since they seemed to work pretty well for us. I used a small piece of fabric that was about 4" x 10".

I folded both edges towards the middle and pinned them.

Then I ironed the folded fabric as shown below.
Once I unpinned, I folded the edges in towards the middle again.

I just used a simple straight stitch to close the fabric strap.
Most craft store sell these clips. I took my fabric strip and folded it over the metal loops.

To hide the unfinished edge, I just folded the fabric over a little and sewed it closed on the sewing machine.

On the other side of the fabric strip, I folded the edge over and sewed it closed too.

To add the loop, I made a tiny cut in the top of the strip.

I stuffed both ends of the loop inside and pinned them to the fabric.

Using my sewing machine, I just sewed back and forth a few times to keep the loop from coming loose.

And here's Connor showing off his new paci clip!

Very easy and fun to make them to match different outfits!
