Don't you love a quick and easy project, especially when that project is useful?
I bought supplies for key fobs online and have loved how easy they have made finding my keys. They were very fast, simple and inexpensive to make. They would be great to give as gifts.
Wristlet Key Fobs
- Key fob hardware (The hardware looks like a key ring with a little clamp attached to it. You can purchase it online at theribbonretreat.com at two for $1.)
- Cotton webbing (in the same width as your key fob hardware)
Cut your cotton webbing so that it is about 10 inches long. Cut your ribbon the same length. Machine or hand stitch the ribbon to the cotton webbing the full length on both edges.
Fold the webbing/ribbon in half and match up the two raw ends. Place them into the clamp part of the fob hardware and squeeze it shut with pliers.
See, wasn't that easy? I want to make a million of them. You can be as creative as you want. For example, on one of them, I used two narrow strips of ribbon. Have fun!
