Fabric Key Ring

Hi everyone! I am Sachiko from Tea Rose Home. First of all I would love to say thank you to Jamielyn for having me here today!

In my blog, I share my sewing/craft ideas and tutorials, some recipes and a little bit about my life. If you have created something and want to show it off, the link party that I host on every Wednesday is the perfect place to do so. Please drop by sometime, I would love to have you there. :)

I have been obsessed with folded fabric flowers and wool flowers lately. I have created a bag and refashioned one of my old cardigans by using the flowers and I LOVE how they turned out.

The love of those flowers didn’t end there and I still have a bunch of ideas for them. I am sharing a fabric key ring tutorial today and of course it is decorated by fabric folded flower… The key holder is easy to make and you can make a whole bunch of them inexpensively. It is a perfect stocking stuffer, or for a gift exchange with the girlfriends you hang out with.

I hope you will enjoy the tutorial!

{You will need} — For one key holder

1 — 2 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ fabric

1 — 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ fusible fleece

Matching thread

1 Ring

6 — 1 1/4″ x 1 1/4″ fabric squares for making a flower

Buttons and beads to decorate

{How to}

1. Fuse the fusible fleece to the fabric. Follow the instructions that came with the fusible fleece. Fold the fabric at the edge of the fusible fleece. Measure and mark the fleece, according to the picture. If you are making more than one, it will be quicker to make a pattern with a piece of paper and trace it.

2. Sew inside of the line, using 1/4″ seam. Cut off the excess and cut small triangles around the corners for a nicer finish.

3. Turn the fabric inside out. It is easier to use scissors or a chopstick to push the fabric out. Fold the top in thirds, and press the whole thing with an iron. Stitch around the edge with 1/8″ seam.

4. Fold 1/4″ from the top, and put a ring on the fabric and fold the fabric over the ring and sew the ring into the key holder.

5. Sew fabric folded flower, beads, and buttons to the key holder. I did it so that the stitches are not showing on the other side. You can see what I did to make the flower here.

I enjoy coming up with combinations of fabrics, buttons and beads. It is so funny that a slight change can give each key holder a whole new look.
