I started by printing my A Sweet Berry Designs berry logo on printable transfer paper and using the Sizzix Eclips2 to cut them out. I was originally going to do circle keychains, so I cut our circles but ended up cutting them into more of a rectangle/square shape! After they were printed and cut out, I laid them print side down onto my white fabric and ironed them with my iron set to the setting recommended on the transfer directions.
Then it was time to cut my fabric! JoAnn Fabrics was having a Fat Quarter sale, so I purchased a variety of purples and greens. I kept the fabric folded and cut a rectangle to my preferred size using my rotary cutter and ruler. For the felt that I was going to place into the middle to give it a little fullness, I cut just a little smaller than the fabric cut out so that it was not visible once they were sewn in. Once everything was cut, I placed the felt into the middle.
Then it was time to sew them up. I used a zigzag stitch and sewed the three sides closed. Once they were all sewn closed, I placed the berry logo where I wanted it and stitched it in place, also using the zigzag stitch. Then it was time to place the key fob hardware clamp onto the sewn fabric. I put them on the side that was folded. I didn’t want flier marks on my hardware, so I used a scrap piece of fabric to place over the hardware while clamping it together, making sure that the spikes within the clamp went into the fabric. I had just had my nails done, so my lovely husband was nice enough to add all of the split rings to my hardware clamps for me!
Voila! They were done! I wanted to add cute little tags to mine, so I cut gift tags using my Sizzix Eclips 2. Using my personalized stamp from Laura Kelly for Expressionery.com, I stamped my tag. My stamp says “Created with Love From Katie Berry”.
I hope you like my Fabric Key Fobs! They were super easy to make! I made them to go with my business cards for SNAP! Conference and they were a hit! I still have a few left, so if you’d like one, just let me know!
Until next time……
