Christmas Gift Idea #2: Key Fob Wristlets @ December 02 2021


1.  Cut an 11" section of Cotton Webbing and Fabric strip, create an 11"x2.25" strip of Fabric and an 11"x1" strip of Heat N Bond. If desired you can make the wristlet longer, some crafters go as large as 12-14" but 11" is a nice universal size.

2.  I made a template out of chipboard that was 12"x1.25" to help me achieve a consistent size and look. Fold in and iron the fabric to 1.25" wide.

3.  Center and iron Heat N Bond to the underside of the Fabric strip.

4.  Remove Heat N Bond backing and turn finished Fabric Strip right side up and iron to Cotton Webbing making sure to center it.

5.  Stitch along the edge of your Fabric strip, securing the edge onto the webbing.  Work slowly, keeping close to the edge.  Go the whole length on both sides.

6.  Fold the Cotton Webbing in half, right sides facing out and match up the ends.  Secure with Sewing Clips and stitch the ends together with a zigzag stitch.  Trim any loose threads and lightly coat the end in Fray Stop or equivalent liquid to help resist fraying over time.

7.  Tuck the sewn seam ends into the Key Fob Hardware, making sure that the Cotton Webbing is in there evenly and not hanging out one end or the other.

8.  Using your Key Fob Hardware pliers squeeze the Key Fob Hardware closed a little at a time.  I like to go back and forth a couple times so that I don't over-crimp one side too much.

9.  Add the Key Ring and Yay!!! You are done.  Good Job!!!
