Quick and Simple Key Fobs Tutorial

Welcome to the first post in our Seasonal Sewing Series.  I’ve already seen many of the projects that are coming your way over the next few weeks, and I’ve been amazed at the quality of both the projects and the tutorials.  Puts my little project to shame!  But at least these won’t take you long to make …

I’m kicking us off today with something very quick and simple you can make for the festive season – a quick and simple key fobs tutorial.

 

Quick and simple, sewn ribbon key fob tutorial.

 

These are great to make at this time of year.  These really do take just minutes to make and are inexpensive.  A quick and easy project for:

  • stocking stuffers for everyone
  • make to sell at your Christmas Bazaar or Church Fayre
  • earning a little extra cash on Etsy
  • practical, we all need them

There are so many pretty ribbons available in so many designs, that if you want to make these on a specific theme you can do.  How about for sports fans, cat lovers or coffee addicts – you can find a ribbon to suit them all.

Take a look at the video to see how easy it is.  [Note – when the video starts to play, you can click on the little ‘gear’ button to change the resolution and make it better quality.]

 

 

Supplies for making your own key fobs can be found at 3d Hardware on Etsy.

    I’m more of a knitter/crocheter fiber artist, but I have a sewing machine & I’m always looking for quick & easy gift ideas. I just bought a stack of scrap fabric, having no idea what I was going to do with it but the fabric was just so cute! So thanks – even with my basic sewing skills I think I can manage this.
