I made a few binky clips in a hurry this week because my son's store- bought binky clip broke and we currently only have one pacifier that he likes (what am I thinking?! I need to run to the store a get a spare in case- heaven forbid- I can't find it at bedtime...) and we just can't have his binky floating around unattached. I used what I had, which was ribbon, suspender clips, snaps, and velcro.
For a regular binky clip, just start with a ribbon that is 11"- 13" and that should be plenty for the length and the loops for the clip and the snap/ velcro where you attach the binky. Much shorter than that, and it won't be long enough to clip on and reach to baby's mouth, and much longer than that could potentially be a safety hazard. The exception is if you want to make a ruffled or pleated one like the one below, you will need quite a bit more ribbon to make the knife pleats. I just pinned the pleats as I made them until it was about the right length, then I sewed the white ribbon directly on top of it.
