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 June 13 2017

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:

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

30 Days of KAM Snaps and Beyond!!! How to make Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips with Cover Buttons, Round Faced Metal Suspender Clips and KAM Snaps September 24 2014

Day #35

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:

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic title

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.

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic4

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic5

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic6

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.

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic7

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

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic8

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

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic9

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.

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic10

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

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic11

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.

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic12

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

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic13

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 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.

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic14

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

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic15

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

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic16

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.


30 Days of KAM Snaps and Beyond!!! 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 September 05 2014

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:

No Sew Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring title pic

No Sew Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 2

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.

No Sew Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 3

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 with MAM O Ring pic 4

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.

No Sew Pacifier Clip with MAM O Ring pic 6

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.
