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.

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 Sewing 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.
