Key Fobs

I love these things!  I used this tutorial over at the idea room to make key fobs for gifts.  The inside is cotton and the outside is brocade. I added two inches to the length of the cut fabric as suggested to fit around the wrist (Total size cut:  2 3/4 inches by 13 inches).  The top green one is 14 inches in length to give a little extra room for large wrists.  The tutorial reads for the interfacing to be 1 inch in width - I also shaved this down about 1/8 inch to make sure it didn't accidentally peak out.

Using the brocade fabric was the hardest part.  It was so slippery, I could barely get the interfacing to stick, and I ended up with some singed fabric trying.  I used lots of pins!  My machine HATED me for the final two line stitches across the ribbon, but it chugged along.

I hoped the recipients liked them.  I was very nervous making them and trying not to screw up!

(These are much shinier than the picture shows!)
