Hello! Welcome to my new craft blog, Crafteverly!
If you know me from my personal blog, Forgetfulone, you know I love to craft! I enjoy sewing, Cricut , wood, vinyl, paper, and so many other types of crafts, and I love creating digital items as well.
I've finally opened an Etsy shop, but I only have two digital products uploaded so far, but I'm working on it! Right now, I want to show you a key fob I made to support my hometown team the Astros. You can make it using any fabric. I just happened to have this fabric from when I worked part time at Jo Ann.
|I also have to take better pictures before putting them in my shop!
This is super easy to make. You need the following:
12x4 piece of fabric
12x4 piece of lightweight, fusible interfacing
iron and ironing board or ironing mat
any sewing machine
First, you iron the interfacing onto the wrong side of the fabric. Next fold the fabric in half longways and press. Open it back up. Fold one side of the fabric in toward the middle and press. Repeat on the other side. Now fold in half again and you should have fabric that is 12x1 with all the raw edges on the inside.
Now take it to the sewing machine and sew a 1/8" straight stitch all the down the open side to close it up. Then sew a 1/8" straight stitch down the other side so they match. Now fold in half bringing the two ends with raw edges together. Baste the key fob in place where the two ends meet.
The last thing to do is to use your pliers to attach the hardware to the fabric making sure not to scratch the hardware. I used pliers that were made for this purpose as they have a rubber tip on them. Add keys, and you're good to go!
Here are some others I made:
