How to Make: Just fold each end of the elastic around the loop of one of the suspender clips and stitch.

Now you can use this handy gadget to clip a washcloth (or two, for heavy droolers!) cloth diaper, or hand-towel around baby's neck

Other Uses: With a shorter piece of elastic and two more clips, you can make mitten clips (attach one end to mitten, other end to sleeve).

Or even shoe clips for those little ones that like to kick off their shoes! (Fasten one end at back of shoe, the other end to pant leg.)

Or fasten to snow pant cuff, wrapping under sock foot, to opposite side of snow pant cuff - to keep snow pants from riding up!
