DIY Pacifier Clips

So, I've been a little bit MIA lately, mostly due to finishing up loose ends with school and trying to work entirely too many jobs all at once...  but by this time on Friday, I will be officially graduated from nurse practitioner school!!!
WHAT am I going to do with all my new found free time?!?! (HA!!)

Well, aside from starting a new job... ;)  hopefully more baking, cooking, sewing, and some blogging to show off all my results.

One of my good friends from college is having a baby girl in March, and I wanted to do a little something special for her.  I found several tutorials on Pinterest for pacifier clips (here and here), but ultimately decided to use this one from The Crafty Cupboard.

Beginner seamstresses, never fear!!! This was SO EASY.  BELIEVE ME.  I am NOT great at sewing by any means.  I knocked out two pacifier clips in about 10 minutes.  I bought a package of fat quarters so that I would have baby G's nursery colors, but this requires so little fabric that you could easily make this from scraps in your pile, or even old shirts from your giveaway basket.  I have so much fabric left over from my fat quarters that I could easily make 100 more... unfortunately for my crafty little fingers, I don't have that many pregnant women in my life, and I don't think baby G needs a clip for every day of the year.

Here is my finished project.  I'm pretty proud of these :)  Don't you love the added touch of the sparkle ribbon I used? I couldn't resist.



So, hop on over to Melanie's tutorial and make you and everyone you know some of these bad boys!
