Fabric scrap Keychains Here's the how to! You'll need: *fabric scraps *medium weight iron on interfacing *small piece of Pellon Peltex one sided iron-on interfacing. This stuff is really stiff and is almost like cardboard but you can sew right through it. It's awesome! I get mine when the interfacing at Joann's goes on sale, but you really only need a tiny bit so it shouldn't break the bank. *twill tape or grosgrain ribbon *key ring (you can get these on etsy, or re-use an old key ring from an unwanted key chain) *pinking shears *buttons, felt, for embellishing *thread, sewing stuff *something to make a pattern with, I traced a few of the round things in my sewing room to get some different shapes, and sketched out the oval. So, first off decide what scraps you'd like to use, and iron on the medium interfacing to the wrong side of the fabric. (that white piece is the Peltex) If you're going to do an applique or buttons, trace around your pattern onto the right side of the fabric so that you know how to place it. I added a quick appliqued C to this one (cruddiest applique sewing job ever though, lol) Then I ironed on the Peltex to the wrong side of my fabric according to the directions. (there's a shiny side, which is the side that should be ironed on the wrong side of the fabric. I placed it down, covered it with a pressing cloth, and pressed with my iron for about 10-15 seconds.) Make sure you iron it to the side you want to be the "front" of your key chain. Then cut it out, along with the back of your key chain. Place wrong sides together, and place two pins about 1" or so apart on the bottom. Sew from pin to pin, around the circle, about 1/4" away from the edge. Then trim the edges all the way around with pinking shears. Cut a piece of your twill tape or ribbon about 2" long. (ignore the fact that this piece is longer, 2" works better!) Fold it over your key ring, insert into the opening on the bottom of your key chain, and sew the opening closed, back stitching at the beginning and end. Trim threads, and you're done! Make a ton more for friends and family! You can also sew up a fabric loop to match, but those were a bit bulky and I found that the twill tape was a lot easier to sew and made them a lot quicker to make also!
