These are very easy to make and You will be able to make 2 of these with just 1/8 yard of fabric. They are also available for sale in my Etsy Shop. Read on for a quick Tutorial.
- 1/8 yard of any fabric (Cotton quilting fabric is best)
- 1 Split ring Keychain
- Coordinating thread
- Sewing Machine
Cut you’re your fabric to 18” x 6” and press.
Fold this in half lengthwise and press.
It will now measure 18” x 3” .
Open it up and fold the cut ends into the center with wrong sides together.
Once you have folded then it will look like this. By folding the fabric this way you will not have to add interfacing to add stiffness. This will make your keychain more sturdy, and it will hold up to normal wear and tear.
I did not get a picture of this but you can also fold under the raw ends and press them to save a step.
One you have it folded in half you need to top stitch along both edges.
This is when you add the split ring. You should fold your strip of fabric in half and add it placing it in the fold.
I make these in a production line form and make a bunch up to this last step.
Then stitch the ends closed and flip them to enclose the ends and stitch right next to the seam allowance.
I then stitch close to the split ring a couple of passes so that the stitch is strong.
It you would rather purchase one, I have them listed in my Etsy Shop.
