I Like Big Buttons! – How to make a Fabric Pacifier Clip with KAM Snaps, MAM Ring or O-Ring and an KAM Plastic Pacifier Clip for Button Style Pacifiers

Today, I am making a pretty Fabric Pacifier Clip for Button Style Pacifiers using our silicone MAM rings and O-Rings. Pretty & functional! 🙂

Supplies for a Fabric Pacifier Clip with Button Style Pacifier Adapters:

Instructions:

1.  Choose a piece of Fabric, cut it to the dimensions: 14″ x 3 1/2″, the finished product once ironed, folded and sewn will be approximately 7/8″ wide x 12″ long.

2.  Fold both 3 1/2″ wide ends in 1/4″ and iron flat.

3.  Now fold and iron the fabric in half the long way (14″ length).

4.  Then fold and iron again, bringing the outer edges to the middle “iron line” and iron along those edges. Repeat on other side.

5.  Re-iron the seam so that the Fabric is smooth and flat, it should now be 13 1/2″ long x 7/8″ wide.

6.  Open the top of the Fabric strip and trim the excess internal fabric at an angle so that there is less chance of the ends peeking out when sewn together.  Repeat on the other end.

7.  Pin the Fabric strip in a couple places to keep it in place.

8.   Sew a 1/8″ seam all the way around the piece making sure to back stitch at the start and finish to set the seam.

9.  Now installed a Cap and Stud about 1/2″ from the edge and the mating Cap and Socket about 1 1/2″ later so that the center of the two KAM Snap parts are about 1 1/2″ or more apart.  Any closer and I found I had trouble getting the MAM Ring or O-Ring Adapter to sit neatly inside.   I used Size 20 snaps for this tutorial but either Size 20 or Size 16 will work great.

10.  Repeat on the other side, that will hold the Pacifier Clip.  I, then, feed the Pacifier Clip and MAM Ring Adapter onto the ribbon and snapped it into place.  It may have been easier to thread on the pacifier clip before installing any Snap parts but I was able to feed it through without much trouble.

12.  Simply stretch the MAM Ring or O-Ring around the Button Style Grip on the Pacifier and it will settle behind it and hold the Pacifier securely. Now snap the Pacifier in place, attach to your child’s shirt and go.

Cover Button Embellished Pacifier Clips by I Like Big Buttons!

I have had a lot of questions in the last couple years about how to make these clips so I decided to take it on. A Pacifier Clip made extra adorable with the added Cover Button accent, they are a great accessory to add to your baby’s wardrobe for any special occasion or just because.

Supplies:

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic1

Instructions:

1.  Using our Pacifier Clip and Supply Tutorials make either Ribbon or Fabric Pacifier Clips.

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic2

2.  Cut your fabric scrap. You will want a circle that is about twice the diameter of your button blank.  I cut out a Piece of Fabric using my Size 36 Template.

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic3

3.  Put your fabric piece in the larger assembly tool piece (RIGHT SIDE DOWN). When you look into the tool you want to see the back of the fabric.

4.  Place the button front (the domed piece) on top of the fabric. Leave the fabric edges hanging out.  Double check the transparent underside to see if your print is how you would like it.   Then press the cover button fabric edges down into the tool.

5.  Add a dab of E6000 Adhesive to the middle of the cover button cap before installing the Flat Back.

6.  Place the back cover button piece on top of your fabric and button front.

7.  Take the smaller piece of the assembly tool and with the open side down place it on the button back.

8.  Press down. You may hear a pop when the last bit of the button back slips into place. If you take the tool out and the button is not completely secured, just put it back in and press down again.

9.  When you take the small assembly tool piece off, the fabric edges will be secured underneath the button back.

10.  Remove the button from the larger assembly tool piece.  Tada!  My Cover Button is ready to be adhered to a Round Faced Metal Clip.

11.  Here a the Cover Buttons I made in just a few minutes.  Seriously easy, fun and so cute!

12.  Now take the E6000 Adhesive and put a medium size dab of glue on the back of the Cover Button about 1/2 of what would fill the back area of the back.  This glue is great to work with so don’t overly worry about getting the amount just right.  I was able to cleanly wipe of any excess off when I put on too much and I was also able to remove the button and add a little more when I under did it.  This glue is very forgiving.

13.  Now place the Cover Button over the Round Faced Metal Pacifier Clips and straighten and center your button.

14.  Press firmly and let set to dry and cure 24-72 hours as recommended by the manufacturer (E6000).

15.  These are my finished products.  I love them and think they turned out beautifully.  Below are my examples, completed and installed on Pacifier Clips.

Disclaimer:  Keep in mind that although I have rough tested these I in no way recommend you leave your baby alone with these as there are small pieces and if not done properly they may come apart and become a choking hazard.  I would recommend these clips under adult supervision only.  The maker and/or parent assumes full responsibility when using these pacifier clips.

Jean Pacifier Clip with Fabric Rosette using KAM Plastic Snaps and a KAM Plastic Pacifier Clip

Every time I do a load of jeans in the laundry, I inevitable find ANOTHER pair of jeans with the knees split from seam to seam and, really, how many jean shorts can a boy use :P.  They even wear though patches and re-enforced knees.  I have active boys :).  I have been trying to find creative ways to recycle holey jeans.  Today I am recycling a pair of holey jeans into a Pacifier Clip.

Don’t forget to enter our Super-Sized KAM Plastic Pacifier Clips and Snap Giveaway!!!  Just 7 days left:

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Also, if you don’t want to wait, you can get 10% off our Pacifier Supplies on our website with Coupon Code: PACI2016

Supplies for a Recycled Jean Pacifier Clip with Fabric Rosette:

Instructions:

1.  Using an old, holey pair of Jeans cut two 1 1/2″ x 14″ strips of material.

2.  Use Sewing Clips to hold the material, wrong sides together, right sides facing out.

jean-pacifier-clip-with-rosette-kam-clip-04

3.  Stitch around the strip of fabric about a 1/4 to 3/8″ in all the way round making sure to back stitch at the start and end.

4.  Pull on the edges to fray the jean material up to the stitch you made.  I used a crafty child 🙂 with a cutting board and a fork.  It will also fray over time but I was going for a this look.

jean-pacifier-clip-with-rosette-kam-clip-06

5.  To make the Fabric Rosette, fold the fabric in half, wrong sides together, two times.  You will end up with about 1/2″ or less strip of fabric 24″ long.  I used an iron to fold it, not so much that it was completely flat, just enough that it held its shape.  Start at one end and hot glue the first bit of it back against itself.

jean-pacifier-clip-with-rosette-kam-clip-07

6.  Continue this ever so often so that the ‘bud’ stays together.

jean-pacifier-clip-with-rosette-kam-clip-08

7.  I made the bud or center of the rose about 1/2″ in diameter.  Add one last drop of hot glue.

jean-pacifier-clip-with-rosette-kam-clip-10

8.  Now twist the fabric 360 degrees, so that the bottom becomes the top.  Tack it with a small bead of hot glue and repeat.

jean-pacifier-clip-with-rosette-kam-clip-11

9.  Continue twisting and gluing until you run out of fabric or until you reach the desired size of your rosette.

jean-pacifier-clip-with-rosette-kam-clip-12

10.  It will look like this when you are finished.

jean-pacifier-clip-with-rosette-kam-clip-13

11.  Glue the last bit of fabric on the underside of the Rosette securely with hot glue.

jean-pacifier-clip-with-rosette-kam-clip-14

12.  For a more finished look, I added a circle of felt to the bottom with Fabri-Tac.

jean-pacifier-clip-with-rosette-kam-clip-16

13.  Put the KAM Plastic Pacifier Clip on the Fabric strip about 1″ in.

jean-pacifier-clip-with-rosette-kam-clip-17

14.  Fold back 1″ of the strip back onto itself.

jean-pacifier-clip-with-rosette-kam-clip-18

15.  Straight stitch across the fabric strip just behind the KAM Plastic Pacifier Clip.  Make sure to set the stitch.

jean-pacifier-clip-with-rosette-kam-clip-19

16.  Make sure that the internal snap in a comfortable distance to accommodate the width of the handle, I spaced my KAM Snaps about 2″ apart using the Pacifier I have with the biggest handle.

17.  Now on the side where the Pacifier will be attached, I installed a Cap and Socket about 1/2″ from the edge.  I used Size 20 snaps for this tutorial but either Size 20 or Size 16 will work great.

jean-pacifier-clip-with-rosette-kam-clip-20

18.  Add Fabric Rosette with Fabri-Tac to the Pacifier Clip just above the clip.

jean-pacifier-clip-with-rosette-kam-clip-21

19.  Now snap the Pacifier in place, attach to your child’s outfit and go.

20.  Tada!  Okay, I think I am in love.  Super cute!  Happy Snapping!!!  To see our other great Pacifier Clip Tutorial and KAM Plastic Snap Ideas and buy these supplies visit I Like Big Buttons.com.
