Fabric key chains

Hello everybody,

Today I have a fun and easy craft for you. I am going to show you how to make fabric key fobs/chains. I made mine with christmas fabric, but you can make yours with whatever fabric you want.

What you need:

  • fabric (1 normal fabric & one heavy one)
  • sewing machine
  • scissors
  • key fob hardware

How to make the key chains:

You can either follow my written instructions down below or use this video from iheartstiching, that shows you how to make the key fobs.

  1. Cut 2 pieces of fabric (one normal piece, one sturdy piece) to fit your key fob hardware. (Make sure you include seem allowance).
  2. Lay the 2 pieces good side to good side.
  3. Sew around them leaving one of the short sides open.
  4. Cut off any excess fabric. (Don´t cut through the seem!)
  5. Turn your piece inside out, so your good side is on the outside.
  6. Sew along the sides to add an edge or add ribbon etc. (this is only optional).
  7. Attach your hardware by putting it on the open side of your fabric and pressing it closed with some pliers. Make sure it is tight enough that your fabric can´t slide out.
  8. You just made your key fob!

Tipps:

  • Cut your fabric double as long, so you can fold it and attach both sides in between your hardware, creating a loop.
  • Sew on stripes or other patterns for some more details.
  • Make sure to use a piece of fabric, when you press your hardware closed, so it does not get scratched up.

This was my craft for the day. I hoped you enjoyed it.
