Fabric KeyChains

Fabric KeyChains
Ever dig into the depths of your purse trying to find your car keys, while simultaneously juggling groceries and a wiggly toddler? Well I have. One too many times. Today I would love to share with you how to make these fabric keychains that can be worn around your wrist for easy access. Let’s get started. For this project you will need: 2 coordinating fabrics1 strip of fusible interfacing (I used Pellon 809 DecorBond)1 purse strap clip (I found mine at JoAnn’s Crafts)4 inches ribbon (mine was 7/8 inch width)matching thread First, cut your fabric so that you have a strip of each material that measures 2.75 (2 and 3/4) inches by 13 inches. Iron both strips of coordinating fabrics a 1/4 of an inch down both sides with the right-side of the fabric face down on your ironing board. I use a piece of card stock paper to fold the material over to give me a nice even hem line. When both fabrics have been ironed, fold the material in half length-wise and iron. Iron these together.

Lined Paper Tee by Maybe Matilda I’m pretty dang excited to be guest posting on U Create, of all places, with an easy and fun project for you. Just in time for heading back to school, I came up with this cute top: My name is Rachel, and I blog over Maybe Matilda. I think this lined paper tee is such a fun way to bring out the inner student, and possibly even encourage a little bookishness in a little one (maybe that’s a stretch, but a girl can hope, right?). It’s really simple to put together, and you can easily make it in any size. Here’s what you’ll need to make this tee: a white tank, tee, or onesie masking tape foam brush blue and red acrylic paint fabric painting medium (available at craft stores–you’ll find it with the paint supplies) To start, place some cardboard between the front and back of the top so your paint doesn’t bleed through to the back of your shirt, then place your tape in straight horizontal lines across your shirt to mark the areas where you’ll paint your blue lines.

How to Weave on a Cardboard Loom June 25th, 2008 Email 1322 users recommend Weaving like this can be the basis for so many projects: place mats, coasters, bags, hats—use your imagination. All photos by Diane Gilleland Keep your edges a little loose, and they'll stay nice and straight. An ordinary salad fork makes a great tool for keeping your weaving snug. Photo: All photos by Diane Gilleland Weaving is such a meditative, relaxing craft—and at the end of it, you have fabric! I like to re-use cardboard shipping envelopes for my simple looms. Begin by deciding how wide you want your weaving to be. Next, measure and mark every 1/4 inch along the edge of your cardboard, working between the two width marks you made in the previous step. Draw a line 1/2 inch from the edge of the cardboard. Use a pair of strong scissors to cut a series of slits in the edge of the envelope, 1/4 inch apart. Repeat these steps on the opposite edge of the cardboard. Time to string your loom! Here's a shot of the back of the loom. Ready to weave?
