Scout loves her pacifier. She doesn't need it all the time, and she will spit it across the room when she's done with it. This means that we were picking it up off the floor and washing it constantly. Now we aren't germaphobic in the least, but we live with a golden retriever and even with constant vacuuming and sweeping there would be dog hair on our floors. It's inevitable. And for the most part, it doesn't bother me that much. But obviously, I draw the line when it comes to the pacifier. In the interest of tethering that pacifier to her, we looked high and low for pacifier clips and even bought a few at Target. Unfortunately, because of the unique design of the Soothie (it doesn't have a handle to clip), none of the available tethers would work. With necessity being the mother of invention and all, I set to work.
It's really simple. A piece of grosgrain ribbon looped and sewn on the sides and a piece of elastic looped on the end which will fit any type of pacifier (in case we move to something else).
It's really that simple. I originally used suspender/ mitten clips from the fabric store for the ends, but the metal teeth seemed like they would snag her clothes. So I purchased some clips from Etsy in two sizes (1" and 3/4") that have plastic teeth. I used various ribbon in both 7/8" and 5/8" sizes. Perhaps a tutorial to follow, but in the meantime there are plenty that can be found via a google search.
