Tutorial- EASY Paci Holder

I always swore I would never have a baby who was addicted to the paci {this was before I learned the number one rule of parenting is to NEVER say your child will NEVER do something.. lol}.

My first HAD to have the paci until about 3 months, then she spit it out and never wanted it again! YAY!

Well, my second is addicted. I mean A-ddicted to the thing. If you don't have the paci.... you are going to hear about it. And she screams LOUD!

So to make sure we never forget the paci, I have to have a paci leash. Only problem is she will only take those Soothie pacis and it is hard to find holders for those.

So I made these quick and easy holders for her. They are so cheap to make, you probably have everything you need on hand already. And since they are so cheap, I can toss them whenever they get dirty. Nothing more disgusting than a dirty paci holder!

What you need:

Photobucket

Ribbon
Scissors
Rubber Band
Suspender clip {the one thing you might not have on hand. I bought mine off Etsy}
Ruler
Lighter {to heat seal the ends of your ribbon so it doesn't fray}

I like the paci leash to be short. I hate when they drag on the ground when she is crawling. So I cut mine at 6 inches.

Heat seal the ends with your lighter. Then you take one end and wrap it around the suspender clip

And sew

{you can totally sew these by hand, I used to before I got my sewing machine}

Wrap the other end around the rubber band and sew

Then you have this

With the Soothie paci you will stick the rubber band through one of the little holes

Then stick the ribbon through it

And pull! Wa-La! A paci holder!

These seriously take 5 minutes to make. You can make one to match every outfit :) And although I made mine specifically for the Soothie paci, it really will work with any type!

So quick and easy! I tend to make a new one every week since hers get dirty so fast. I just cut the ribbon to get the suspender clip out and attach it to a new piece of ribbon!

  10. Ok! You're my hero!! Using the hair elastic is the most amazing idea I've seen for Soothie pacifier clips yet! I am SO glad I found your tutorial! I was just about to order some colored elastic by the yard. No need wait, no need to worry how to securely connect the elastic together! THANKS!
