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.
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 Print or Plain.
I’m so excited about this Seasonal Sewing Series. We have some really great posts and projects coming up and of course the daily prize giveaways, and the Grand Prize Giveaway at the end. So without further delay, let me introduce you to the sponsor for today’s post and giveaway prize – a great big THANK YOU to Sewaholic Patterns!
About Sewaholic Patterns: Sewaholic Patterns is the first company to offer pretty, versatile sewing patterns for pear-shaped women! Our patterns are easy to use and designed to fit and flatter a pear-shaped figure.
Based in Vancouver BC, Sewaholic Patterns was founded in 2010 by Tasia Pona. The idea to create patterns specifically for pear-shaped women came from her frustration in having to alter commercial patterns to fit her curvy lower body. She knew she couldn’t be the only one out there feeling the same way. Why not create simple, flattering patterns proportioned for our body type instead?
Sewaholic Patterns is proudly Canadian. All of our patterns are named after Vancouver area landmarks (Crescent Beach, Lonsdale Quay, Minoru Park) and are printed on FSC-certified and recycled paper. Sewaholic Patterns are stocked in over forty retail shops around the world. We’re excited to see more and more people learning to sew and taking pride in making their own clothing!
We’re combining fashion industry experience with decades of sewing knowledge to develop a full range of patterns. Our goal is that with Sewaholic Patterns, you’ll be able to sew a practical and pretty wardrobe, tailored to suit your body type. The Sewaholic blog is full of tips, tutorials and step-by-step photo demonstrations to help you sew with confidence!
