Handmade key fob

In Love Patchwork and Quilting a few months ago (issue 11) there was a kit included for making a key fob.  It was so much fun to make, and so easy, that I thought I would share the project with you.

Here’s how it turned out:

I gave it to my Mum.  At first she said “What is it?!” but after a short explanation, she got excited and put it to use straight away.

It has got me thinking about the ways I could make more of them, and make them more personal, more interesting.  My mind has been working overtime!  The only sad news is that I won’t have the hardware arrive before Christmas… otherwise there’d be some very nice gifts going around!

I’ve done all the research you could possibly need, now, so let me make gathering the know-how and the materials to make these easy for you…

You can get the instructions on how to make them either from Love Patchwork and Quilting issue 11, or at this website, Leigh Laurel Studios.

You can buy the hardware from Esty sellers like these, or on ebay.

You’ll need to add the fabric and interfacing you want to use, or felt, and a pretty ribbon to tie on at the end.  You’ll need a pair of pliers to fit the hardware, too.

A beautiful, thoughtful gift, handmade in less than half an hour.  Nice!

Have a great day.
