DIY LEATHER BRAIDED PACIFIER LEASH

January 12, 2017

MATERIALS 

-One 60-inch piece of genuine leather lacing
-Suspender clip
-Tape/clipboard or big toe (I’ll explain later)

PROCEDURE

Step 1: Fold leather lacing into thirds like a really long S. There should be a loop and an end on each side. 

Step 2: Put all three strands side by side with the leather side facing the same direction. Make a loop about 1-1/2 to 2 inches long with the end strand up the middle. 

Step 3: Tie a knot keeping all three strands together. Pull tight by pulling one strand at a time making sure the nice side of the lace is facing out. 

Step 4: Secure the loop to make it easier to braid. I loop it around my big toe like a weirdo, (No picture because my feet are looking pretty gross #needapedicure) but you could also tape it to a table or clip it with a clipboard. 

Step 5: Start your braid making sure the leather side is facing out each time. You will have to keep untangling the end as you braid. 

Step 6: When you get about 3 inches from the bottom, you need to tie another loop and knot the same way you did in the beginning. 

Step 7: Put the loop through the pacifier and bring the rest of the pacifier leash through the loop and pull tight.

Step 8: You will use the same method as Step 7 to attach to the suspender clip. 

OTHER INFO 

If your knots do not seem secure you can put a little bit of super glue at the base of the knot.I would not recommend letting your baby sleep wearing the pacifier leash as it could get wrapped around their neck. 

It is also probably not the best idea to let baby chew on the leather unless you are absolutely sure what is used to tan the leather.

Imitation leather can sometimes contain lead or other harmful chemicals.  

There are vegan leather lace options and more expensive leather tanned with organic material.  

You could also use this method with an alternate type of cord.
