In my most recent post I shared 12 Useful Things to Make with Snaps or to add snaps to really. My Pinterest board still contains a lot of snappy projects that I didn’t share that would be perfect to make for a baby or baby shower gift.

8 Useful Things to Make With Snaps for a Baby

Fold N Go Travel Bib

This is just the best idea! Everything you need for an emergency snack or when a relative gives the baby some chocolate! Easy to keep in your handbag for a busy Mum or a perfect little baby shower gift for a Mum to be. You can find the tutorial here.

Bib Extender


The bib extender is one of those nifty ideas I just had to add here. If your baby’s bibs are getting a tad too tight then this is a simple solution to extend the life of them. Simple! You can find more about it here.

Pacifier Clip

These pacifier/dummy clips are very convenient, especially with a baby on the move. When Jordan first started crawling we lost about 3 dummies in one week. They slowly reappeared eventually, but I had to buy more in the meantime! These pacifier/dummy clips saves you that hassle. You can find out more about them here (this is one of my tutorials 🙂 )

Snap on Bowtie Onesie

This snap on bowtie Onesie is super cute! Such a great idea to have that variety in an outfit with just a simple snap to change it up. You can even add suspenders too! You can find the tutorial here.

Suck Pads for Baby Carriers

I’ve only just started using a baby carrier (slow, I know) and I have found it to be one of the most useful things to have for a baby. The carriers can get covered in slobbered and other gross stuff very quickly. These suck pads are awesome to help with keeping your carrier clean. You can find this great tutorial here or you can make simple straight suck pads like the ones here.

Bandana Bib

Again, these little bandana bibs are so useful for a drooly (is that a word??) baby. Super simple and quick to make. Find the tutorial here.

Water Bottle Tether Strap

My little man loves to throw his water bottle on the floor after he’s had a drink! Why?!? Any who, this would save the water bottle from hitting the floor every time. It wouldn’t be as much fun for baby, but it would save the water bottle. You can find the tutorial here.

Snap Cargo Pants

These baby snap up cargo pants are just gorgeous! What a great idea and a great way to upcycle unwanted clothes! These remind me of the snap up track pants in the 90’s….do you remember those?? You can find the tutorial for the baby snap up pants here, but I’m sure you could adjust an adult pant pattern to reminisce about those snap pants you had in the 90’s by adding snaps on the side ;).
