You will literally get one of these fabric keychains in less than five minutes! All you need is some fabric scraps, interfacing, pinking shears and a sewing machine. I’ve decided to sew these as I absolutely love sewing and I’m not one to waste an opportunity to use my sewing machine. But these adorable homemade keychains can easily be done with no sewing involved as long as you use double sided interfacing to stick the the two fabric pieces together.
Although it wasn’t absolutely necessary I wanted to take advantage of my newly purchased snap pliers and added snaps to my keychains. I think my fabric keychains look a lot more professional with this simple addition and are also easier to use; removing the keys and adding them back is now just…a snap!
I made a template for these keychains and you can either purchase them here or get them for free when you join my sewing newsletter.
- keychain template
- fabric scraps
- medium or heavy interfacing (I used heavy)
- fabric marker
- pinking shears
- snap pliers (I got a great kit that includes a leather hole puncher, stud pliers and snap pliers plus a bag of eyelets and a bag of studs and snaps)
- Download your key chain template and cut your fabric pieces according to this template. You will need two pieces of fabric for each key chain.
- Interface one of the fabrics, on the back.
- Match the two pieces wrong sides together and pin.
- Place the keychain template on and draw around it using a fabric pen.
- Sew right on the traced template, using a small stitch and sewing slow over the curves.
- Cut out with your piking shears, about 1/8″ outside the seam.
- Attach the snaps to the straight end of the keychain, following this tutorial.
- Insert the keyring and close the snap and you’re ready to wear your fabric keychains!
