DIY Tag Paci Leash

I found this a few weeks ago & I thought it was a brilliant idea with our trip coming up and Amillie really loves it! This is perfect for a teething baby!




What you'll need; 

1 piece of fabric 3x18"
Sewing machine (obviously)
A suspender clip
ribbon
snaps (and or O rings)
Extra things - pins & a large safety pin


Start by cutting and laying out your strip of fabric.


Cut various pieces of ribbon and pin them to one side (having the ends of the ribbon hang over the edge of the fabric).  Don't pin them all the way from the top to the bottom.  Start about 3 inches down from the top and end about the same amount from the bottom. This is to make sure you have enough room for your clips and snaps.



Sew them in place.



Now fold the whole piece of fabric in half with the right sides together. Using pins to keep it closed. Sew a 1/4" seam and leaving the ends open. 




Now it's time to turn your paci leash to the right side. 
Start by using a large safety pin and pin it through ONE side of one end BUT don't pin it through both layers of fabric, only ONE. Like so....



Oh please excuse my nails!!! haha NOW... Pushing the pin down inside the fabric with your thumb and finger on one hand and scrunch the fabric up and over the pin with the other.  You will want to try and move your pin so that it is going over the top of the ribbon pieces and not through the middle of them. I made sure I could feel the pin right below the fabric.



When you pull it all the way through, it should look like this.


 Iron it flat & top stitch on both sides.



On the end you are attaching the clip too fold up about 1 inch over the suspender clip.  Notice the clip is right side down. (sorry for the fraying!! :\)


Do the same for the other end. Either you can attach snaps or the O-ring. or you can do both. I think I will do both next time so I can have the option or give it to someone later. 



THEN..there ya have it!
