Cut the fabric at 12″ x 4″
Cut the fusible interfacing at 12″ x 4″ – which you will feel one side is smoother. And the other side has tiny dots-and those are the adhesive which it will be infused once it meets the heat from your iron.
Grab the 12 x 4 fabric and place the 12x 4 interfacing on top of the fabric (ensure that the rough side of the interfacing is facing the wrong side of the fabric).
Then press the hot iron section by section on top of the interfacing and fabric together. You will see the indentation of the hot iron at the interfacing. This shows that those tiny dots has infused into your fabric.
Finish the pressing, so we can go to the next step.
Then fold the fabric in half – and press.
Fold half of the half of the fabric – and then press.
Now, do the other side. Fold the half of the half of the fabric – and then press.
Note: After all that folding and pressing.
Keep all the folds together, and you are left with a fabric that is 12″ x 1″.
Now, grab the hot iron and do the last press to get that good crease on the 12″ x 1″ fabric
Take the 12″ x 1″ fabric to the sewing machine, and do a straight stitch all around.
Determine which side of the fabric you would like showing/hiding. The better side pattern of your fabric is what we like to show right? 😉
Fold the fabric in half.
Grab the key-chain hardware, and place it inside the mouth of the special pliers.
Insert the fabric between the hardware.
Note: Just so you know, there’s a couple of teeth inside the hardware and that will grab the fabric.
Center the fabric before you squeeze the pliers.
Once you feel you’re fabric is on the right spot, go ahead and squeeze.
Then, give it a little tug and you will see that it’s not gonna go anywhere.
And that’s it!
Don’t you just love this keyfob wristlet? These are so cute! I think it is so convenient to have, especially for the ones that likes to hold on tho their keys instead of putting them in your purse or pocket.
If you prefer to use plain/simpler pattern of fabrics, you can personalize them if you’d like. You can place HTV, or even embroidery on them. Feel free to give your keyfob wristlet your own touch. This would also be a great stocking stuffers for Christmas or give it to your friends, co-workers, and family.
