All keyed up...

Not long ago, my keychain broke, and I found some very beautiful fabric ones online... I was going to order one, but then I decided to try making one myself...

The nice thing about these keychains is that they are:
a) big enough to slip over your wrist, which is great for moms-on-the-go, loading and unloading kids and groceries from the car
b) big enough to find in a large purse, gym bag, etc.
c) pretty inexpensive (they make a great gift!), and
d) much prettier than the ones I had in the past :)

So, here are a few pictures of keychains I have made for family/friends... As you can see in the bottom picture, I also made some smaller ones (6 inches instead of 10), which are still big enough to find in a bag and you can slip them over a finger or two...

My first sale - 6 inch keychain

Last week, I actually sold two keychains (yay!), and I have a stash of supplies just waiting for me to make more... I'm not quite ready to do anything official yet (like setting up an etsy shop), but if you need a new keychain and like what you see, let me know and I'll do my best to get some made in the next little while ($7.50 for large and $5.00 for small)...

The Stash - including 50 yards of pink cotton webbing!

  1. Whoo-hoo!!! Your first sale!!! *gives a congratulatory bow* <-- I don't mean a ribbon-bow, I mean like... a curtsey... but a bow... er... that's it, no more cold meds for me today... o_O

  2. I LOVE my 10" keychain! I am constantly misplacing my keys when I go into stores, as I put them down as I look at things. NO MORE! Now I can wear it around my wrist as I walk around, as well as sport it to the gym linked onto my waterbottle with a carabiner. YAY
