Cover Button Embellished Pacifier Clips by I Like Big Buttons! May 30 2017, 0 Comments

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:

Instructions:

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

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.

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.

 

16.  Tada!!!

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.

How to make a Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips with Cover Buttons, Round Faced Metal Suspender Clips and KAM Snaps

Today I am making Cover Button Pacifier Clips using Round Faced Metal Pacifier Clips (Metal Suspender Clips), Size 36 Cover Buttons, and KAM Snaps, of course ;).  I have had a lot of questions in the last year about how to make these clips so I decided to take it on.  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.

That being said I did rough test these and was unable to break them apart after they had proper time to dry and cure.  I didn't take a hammer to them :) but I did my best to undo my hard work and was not able to.

Supplies:

    Instructions:

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

    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.

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

    How to make a "No Sew" 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 "No Sew" Pacifier Clip for Button Style Pacifiers using our silicone MAM rings and O-Rings.  No sewing necessary!

    Supplies for a "No Sew" Pacifier Clip with Button Style Pacifier Adapters:

    Instructions:

    1.  Choose a 7/8" or 3/4" or 1/2" Grosgrain Ribbon, cut a 16" to 18" length of ribbon.  I did some of each size of Grosgrain Ribbon and I cut them 16" long so when they were completed they was approximately 12" long.

    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.)

    3.  Then I used a bit of Fabric Tac and folded over an 2" to 1 1/2" of the ribbon back on itself to reinforce the ribbon and pressed it firmly and let it dry.  Repeat on the opposite end.

    4.  Once dry, I installed a Cap and Stud in each end of the ribbon about 1/2" from the edge.  Then I installed the Cap and Socket about 1 1/2" apart so that the center of each KAM Snap is 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.

    5.  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.

    6.  Tada!  Now time to add the Pacifier.

    7.  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.

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

    Supplies for a "No Sew" Pacifier Clip:

    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.

    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.)

    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.

    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.
