Fabric Pacifier Clip with KAM Snaps, MAM Ring or O-Ring and an KAM Plastic Pacifier Clip for Button Style Pacifiers September 21 2016

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

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 18

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 1

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.

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 2

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 3

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

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 4

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

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 5

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.

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 6

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.

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 7

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

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 8

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.

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 9

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.

Fabric Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 10

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.

11.  Tada!  Now time to add the Pacifier.

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.

Jean Pacifier Clip with Fabric Rosette using KAM Plastic Snaps and a KAM Plastic Pacifier Clip September 19 2016

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

jean-pacifier-clip-with-rosette-kam-clip-15

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

jean-pacifier-clip-with-rosette-kam-clip-23

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

jean-pacifier-clip-with-rosette-kam-clip-22

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.

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.

Supplies:

Cup Lease pic 1

Instructions:

1.  Measure off a piece of Grosgrain ribbon that is long enough to wrap around both the arms of the high chair, around the cup and enough length for your child to lift the cup to their mouth comfortably.  I went with 5' but 4 1/2' would have been enough.

Cup Lease pic 2

2.  The ribbon I was using was made of polyester so I used a lighter to seal the ends of the ribbon so it doesn't fray.  (If you are unsure, you may want to practice on a scrap piece if this is your first time or you are unsure of the what the material is made of.)

Cup Lease pic 3

3.  To make the ends more secure and long lasting, I folded the ribbon over about 1/2" to help reinforce the ends and pushed the cap through.

Cup Lease pic 4

4.  Install the KAM Snap at each end.

Cup Lease pic 5

5.  Measure or wrap the ribbon around the arms of the highchair and install a snap where the ribbon intersects.  On my highchair it was 8" but each brand will vary.  Install a KAM Snap on each end about 8" (or your measurement) in from the end.

Cup Lease pic 6

6.  Install the ribbon on your highchair, put a Toddler Cup in the ribbon and pull until you have two equal lengths.  Now pinch the ribbon loosely together around the cup, loose enough to allow for different cup sizes but tight enough to hold the cup well.  Install a set of snaps at the point where the ribbon met.

Cup Lease pic 9

Cup Lease pic 7

7.  Installed it should look like this.

Cup Lease pic 8

8.  Tada!  Enjoy your throw-free cup zone!  My toddler was suspicion of it at first but after grunting at it for while :) she happily settled into drinking from her cup and eating her snack.

5.  Attach the inside KAM Snap to the body of the Milk Jug, Stud facing out.  This may require a KAM tabletop Press, if you only have pliers, you may need to adjust the length of the front flap.

Recycling Jeans into a Pacifier Clip using KAM Snaps and a Pacifier Clip May 12 2016

Recycling Jeans into a Pacifier Clip using KAM Snaps and a 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 Pacifier Clips/KAM Snap Giveaway!!!  Only 4 days left:

Supplies for a Recycled Jean Pacifier Clip:

Instructions:

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

Recycled Jean Paciifer Clip pic 3

2.  Pin the material, wrong sides together, right sides facing out.

Recycled Jean Paciifer Clip pic 4

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.

5.  Put the Pacifier Clip on the Fabric strip about 1″ in.

Recycled Jean Paciifer Clip pic 7

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

7.  Straight stitch across the Fabric strip just behind the Pacifier Clip and again a 1/2″ later, I did a Zig-Zag Stitch for fun,  just before the end of the doubled over Fabric strip.  Make sure to set the stitch both times.

8.  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.

9.  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.

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

11.  Tada!  Okay, I think this may be my favorite so far.  How cute!  Happy Snapping!!!


How to make a "No Sew" Pacifier Clip with KAM Snaps and an Enamel Clip May 10 2016

Making a "No Sew" Pacifier Clip with KAM Snaps and Enamel Clip

Today, I am making a "No Sew" Pacifier Clip.  All the usefulness, no sewing necessary!

Supplies for a "No Sew" Pacifier Clip:

No Sew Pacifier Clip KAM Clip 1 pic1

Instructions:

1.  Choose a 7/8" or 3/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, cut a 14" to 16" length of ribbon.  I did 7/8" Grosgrain Ribbon and I cut it 16" long so when it was completed it was approximately 12" long.

No Sew Pacifier Clip KAM Clip 1 pic2

2.  The ribbon I was using was made of polyester so I used a lighter to seal the ends of the ribbon so it doesn't fray.  (If you are unsure, you may want to practice on a scrap piece if this is your first time or you are unsure of the what the material is made of.)

No Sew Pacifier Clip KAM Clip 1 pic3

3.  Then I used a bit of Fabric Tac and folded over an 1" of the ribbon back on itself to reinforce the ribbon and pressed it firmly and let it dry.  Repeat on the opposite end.

No Sew Pacifier Clip KAM Clip 1 pic5

4.  Once dry, I installed a Cap and Socket in each end of the ribbon about 1/2" from the edge.  I used Size 20 snaps for this tutorial but either Size 20 or Size 16 will work great.

5.  On the side that will hold the Enamel Clip I simply folded the ribbon over at the 1" mark and installed a Cap and Stud where it would meet.  I, then, feed the Enamel Clip 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.

6.  Now on the side where the Pacifier will be attached, adjust the internal snap in a comfortable distance to accommodate the width of the handle.  I went an additional 1/2" for the Pacifier, I used.

7.  Now snap the Pacifier in place, attach to your child's shirt and go.

8.  Tada!  Happy Snapping!!!

Because We Love Color And We Love Choices!!! How We Prepare Our Plastic Snaps And Why October 08 2015

For all our new friends and followers of I Like Big Buttons!, it seemed like a great time to introduce you to our amazing Plastic Snaps!!!  For those of you who have been with us for a long time, here is a refresher.

We carry a variety of package deals for our snaps from 10 sets, 25 sets, 100 sets up to thousands of KAM snaps with and without pliers or professional press all at a great price. We have a listing for just about everyone at the price range and quantity you desire.

25 packs sets came to be largely for cloth diapers.  Most customers that replace Velcro on cloth diapers with snaps have numerous diapers in varying colors.  Many found purchasing 100 of each color wasteful, as they ended up with 75% of their snaps left over.

We provide the best of both worlds, smaller packs to those that want greater variety and larger packs for those looking to use snaps in bulk.

Some of these reasons we offer these great options include:

*A large demand from customers for just 25 snaps to convert or complete a single diaper.

*An equally large demand for “just a sampling of every color”, which gave birth to our sets of 10 and Starter Packs.

* More compact, informational packaging that includes instructions about which Die and Rod to use.

* We also offer individual parts in quantities of 100 and 1000 in all of KAM Plastic Snaps 130+ colors.

If you aren't sure how to jump into plastic snaps, we also carry starter packs including multi-packs of 10 or 25 sets of snaps.  If you are new to snapping, we have starter packs with plastic snap pliers, awl, and an instructional DVD.  These Starter Packs are a great way to get addicted :).  We have 18 preset themes including Rainbow Spectrum, Pastel Spectrum, Baby Boy Blue, Baby Girl Pink, Earth Tones, Military, and many others.  We also offer an option to choose your own colors.  You can pick from any of KAM Plastic Snaps 130+ fun colors.  Check out our KAM Snaps selection and use Coupon Code: SnapLove for 10% off your order.

Here is our chart of available colors, we carry over 130+ great KAM Plastic Snap colors.

Have a great day!
