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.

Inspiring Mothers, Women and Families How To Spin Yarn From Fabric Spinning yarn from fabric scraps is challenging and a fun way to upcycle old bedsheets and pillowcases into sculptural and functional works of art. In order to spin this style of upcycled yarn you will need: 1. Ripped pieces of fabric (under 1/2 inch or 1 centimeter in width) 2. A very strong textured core yarn (like a linen/poly weaving warp thread, or hemp) - you will want a core that is rough so that the fabric doesn't slip off of it. 3.
