Key Chains!


The other day I had the chance to read this post on Infarrantly Creative.

~If you haven't read Beckie's blog, you are missing out.  She has great posts full of fun and beautiful ways to add creativity to life. For some reason I am unable to post her blog link, but make sure to check it out HERE.~

But on her post from April 28th she had a blogging buddy post a tutorial for these gorgeous and simple key chains.  The buddy was Amy at The Idea Room.

So, I fell in love with them and went to town.  I didn't have the exact purse clip Amy showed, but I had "D" rings and I used those.  Here is my first one.  You can see that I had a little trouble with my stitching on the black ribbon, but I couldn't find my seam ripper and my daughter wanted to use it as it was... Here it is:

And here is my second one:
And this is my third:
And finally, my most recent:
I'm still not done making them!  I am having such fun.  My kids love them, and since I'm planning to make some zippered change purses, I'm making plans to make some change purses that match or coordinate with the key chains.  Fun!  

I hope you get the chance to be creative today!

  1. Very cute! I love the fun fabrics. I need something like this so I can find my forever missing keys in my big bag. :)

  2. Chiara, this is so simple! Give it a try!! Makes it easy to find your keys in your bag and it slips right over your wrist like a lanyard but not in your way. - btw, love your name, my dear sister-in-law is Chiarina though we call her Cathy :-)

  3. You did a great job! I love that you did some thicker ones too and the D rings work great! Thanks for the link! Beckie from Infarrantly shared your fun keychains with me :)

  4. Amy yours are so beautiful, thank you for a GREAT tutorial!!

  5. These so cute! I think I need one!! Thanks for sharing at Make Something Mondays!
