Guest Blog: Amber Carrillo, key fob project
Back in August, one of of our guest bloggers, Amber Carrillo from One Shabby Chick, showed us how to make and iPad mini cover. She’s back again with another one of her quick and easy tutorials and this time she shows us how to to make a key fob. You can choose to make it with just one fabric or a selection brightly coloured prints so you’ll never lose your keys again.
Amber has used Liberty Lifestyle fabric to make hers, but you can used any fabric you like.
What you will need
5″ x 10″ piece of fabric
5″ x 10″ piece of lightweight fusible interfacing
Key fob hardware
Key fob pliers (or regular pliers + scrap of batting)
Metal key ring
Iron your fusible interfacing to the wrong side of your fabric.
Iron your fabric in half and then unfold it. Fold both sides in towards the center seam and iron.
Pin fabric closed on open side.
Stitch along open side from one end to the other. Repeat on the other side and then sew two more lines across entire length of fabric.
Fold in half and attach hardware using key fob pliers (if you don’t have key fob pliers, use some batting and regular pliers so you don’t scratch the finish on the hardware)
Attach key ring to hardware and you are done!
