Valentine is our friend’s baby and her mom does awesome photo shoots with her each month with a different theme. They always turn out so cute! With Valentine’s Day coming up I wanted to help make something for the photoshoot so I made this cute heart shaped pillow. If I get time and inspiration I might have to make her a couple headbands too. I only have boys so I just have to make the cute girly stuff for friends!
My boys don’t like to stay still for photoshoots but I was able to get a couple of pictures of my oldest while I was trying to take a picture of the pillow to send to my friend.
I can’t wait to see what magic she does with the pillow and her adorable baby, the pictures will turn out amazingly I’m sure!
My son is addicted to his pacifier, but now he also likes to eat and be messy so one pacifier clip isn’t enough. Last night I needed a second pacifier clip so I whipped one up before bed.
I was lucky to have an abundance of lanyards from when we went to Nascar and they had nice clips on them. I also used some thin elastic, leftover from My Little Pony Headbands.
It was a super quick sewing job to make this pacifier clip with the sewing machine, but it was also be easy to hand-sew if you don’t have a sewing machine handy.
1. Trim the lanyard to about 6 inches long. You don’t want it to be too long because it’s a safety hazard.
2. Trim the elastic to about 3 inches.
3. Fold the elastic in half and place it between the two sides of the lanyard. Sew it in place.
That’s it! Seriously so easy and having a pacifier clip for my baby is seriously the most useful baby item we have. Our first one we received as a gift and it was one of my favorite things ever!
