Fabric Key Fob Hardware Wristlet Tutorial by I Like Big Buttons!

Supplies:

fabric-wristlet-tutorial-title-pic

Instructions:

1.  Cut a 10" x 5" section of Fabric of your choosing and 10" x 2.5" Fusible Fleece.

fabric-wristlet-tutorial-pic-2

2.  Iron Fusible Fleece to the center of the fabric.  Fold and iron the Fabric in half with the wrong sides together.

fabric-wristlet-tutorial-pic-4

3.  Unfold and iron the Fabric in half again long sides to the center.

fabric-wristlet-tutorial-pic-5

4.  It will look like this when you get done.

fabric-wristlet-tutorial-pic-6

5.  Use your Sewing Clips to pin the Wristlet flat.

fabric-wristlet-tutorial-pic-7

6.  Stitch along the edge of your Fabric strip, I stitched 1/4" in.  Remove the Sewing Clips as you go.  Work slowly, keeping close to the edge and as straight of a line as possible.

fabric-wristlet-tutorial-pic-8

7.  Repeat 1/4" stitching along the opposing edge.

fabric-wristlet-tutorial-pic-9

8.  Fold the Fabric Wristlet Strip in half, right sides facing out and match up the ends.

9. Stitch the ends together with a zig zag stitch.  I went back and forth a few times to insure it held.

10.  Trim any loose threads.  Use Fray Check to seal the end of the exposed Fabric edge.

fabric-wristlet-tutorial-pic-10

11.  Tuck the sewn seam ends into the Key Fob Hardware, making sure that the Fabric Wristlet is centered.

fabric-wristlet-tutorial-pic-11

12.  Using Key Fob Hardware Pliers squeeze the Key Fob Hardware closed with gentle pressure.  Sometimes, I go back and forth from left to right added a little bit of pressure to each side until it eases together.  Our Key Fob Hardware Pliers make this easy to do.

13.  Note the adjustable screw set to the distance I want the pliers to go to.

fabric-wristlet-tutorial-pic-13

14.  Add the Split Ring and Yay!!!

15.  I love them and now I have a few sets to share!!!

How to make Embroidered Ribbon Key Fob Hardware Wristlets October 01 2014

How to make Embroidered Ribbon Key Fob Hardware Wristlets

Today, I am making embroidered ribbon Key Fob Hardware Wristlets.  Just a couple weeks ago, my mom, sister and I had a girl's weekend at my home.  In between long rounds of talking and catching up (we talk every week by phone ;), eating good food, chasing kids, and being put to work.  They graciously volunteered to help me do some of the tedious day to day work for my business.  We snuck in some time to make a few Key Fob Hardware Wristlets for them.  Here are some examples of how they turned out.

Supplies:

1.  Cut a 10" section of the Cotton Webbing and Ribbon of your choosing.

2.  The ribbon I was using was made of polyester so I used a lighter to seal the ends of the ribbon so it doesn't fray.  (If you are unsure, you may want to practice on a scrap piece if this is your first time or you are unsure of the what the material is made of.)

  • If you would like (I didn't do it this time but have in the past): Cut a 10" section of Heat N Bond, keeping it thinner than your ribbon.

  • Iron the Heat N Bond to your Cotton Webbing, making sure to center it. This is not a necessary step but it makes it easier to sew the Ribbon on especially with embroidered ribbon.

  • Iron the Ribbon to the Cotton Webbing.

3.  Using my Standard Sewing Machine with Embroidery options, I picked the word I wanted on my ribbon and sewed it on my ribbon.  I folded my ribbon in half and estimated about where the letters would end up and came up with about 2 1/2" to 3" down to get the font centered on the Wristlet once finished.

4.  Use Fray Check to seal the end of the Cotton Webbing.

5.  I laid out my Ribbon and Rick Rack how I wanted it to look using my Wonder Clips.  Love them!

6.  Sew up one side of the Ribbon and down the other. The Ribbon should now be securely attached to the Cotton Webbing.

7.  Fold the Cotton Webbing in half, right sides facing out and match up the ends.

8.  Stitch the ends together with a 1/4" seam allowance.

9.  Trim any loose threads.

10.  Tuck the sewn seam ends into the Key Fob Hardware, making sure that the Cotton Webbing is centered.

11.  Using Key Fob Hardware Pliers squeeze the Key Fob Hardware closed with gentle pressure.

30 Days of Snaps!!! Day #27: How to make a Smart Phone Case and Wristlet with KAM Snaps and Key Fob Hardware July 11 2014

Day #27

Making a Smart Phone Cover and Wristlet with KAM Snaps and Key Fob Hardware

Today's inspiration came to me as I was packing the kids up for a walk down the road to the neighbors to check out their yard sale and visit.  I thought I wish I had a case for my iPhone and a place to put a couple "just in case" dollars but instead I held my phone and tucked the money into my bra :P and headed out with all the kiddos in tow.  When I got home, I whipped this up.  I am prepared for next time :).

Supplies:

Instructions:

1.  Download the Smart Phone Case PDF Pattern.  Print out the pattern making sure the 1″ square in the corner measures 1″ square when printed that will indicate the pattern is the right size.

2.  Cut out each Pattern piece as many times as instructed.

3.  You will end up with:

2 pieces of Fabric/1 Interfacing (back)

2 pieces of Fabric/1 Interfacing (front)

2 piece of Fabric/1 Interfacing (pocket)

2 pieces of Fabric/1 Interfacing (lid)

Smart Phone Case and Wristlet with KAM Snaps pic4

4.  Iron the Interfacing onto a piece of Fabric for matching side making sure to iron it to the wrong side of the Fabric.

5.  Place right sides of Fabric for Pocket together and sew 1/4" seam along the top of the piece.

6.  Iron Fabric for the Pocket open and then over wrong sides together forming the Pocket face.

Smart Phone Case and Wristlet with KAM Snaps pic8

7.  Take 1 of the 10" pieces of Ribbon and 1" Cotton Webbing and sew them together.  I stitched a straight line as close to the edge as possible on the Ribbon.

Smart Phone Case and Wristlet with KAM Snaps pic9

8.  Take the 2 pieces of Fabric for the Lid/Lip of the case, put them right side together, and sew them with a 1/4" allowance.

9.  Turn the Lid right side out and iron flat.  Fold in the bottom edge and stitch it closed.

Smart Phone Case and Wristlet with KAM Snaps pic12

10.  Then take the Fabric (right side up), I am using more of those recycled holey jeans :), that will be the Back and place the Cotton Webbing/Ribbon strip (right side up) centered across it with just a bit of it hanging off the top edge.

Smart Phone Case and Wristlet with KAM Snaps pic13

11.  Place the internal Back Fabric wrong side up.

Smart Phone Case and Wristlet with KAM Snaps pic14

12.  Pin them together.

Smart Phone Case and Wristlet with KAM Snaps pic15

13.  Stitch a 1/4" seam along the piece, back stitching to reinforce Cotton Webbing/Ribbon strip.  Cut away some of the excess Cotton Webbing/Ribbon if needed.

14.  Iron back the Fabric and fold over, wrong sides together.  Now stitch a 1/4" seam allowance across the top of the Back piece.

Smart Phone Case and Wristlet with KAM Snaps pic18

15.  Now slide the Split Ring from the Key Fob Hardware on the Cotton Webbing/Ribbon Strip.

16.  Now leave about 1" to 1 1/2" overlapped Cotton Webbing above the Back of the Case and pin the Cotton Webbing/Ribbon centered down the back of the Fabric.

Smart Phone Case and Wristlet with KAM Snaps pic21

17.  Now stitch it in place down the back, with the internal Back out of the way, not as pictured, and I also stitched along the Cotton Webbing/Ribbon to gather the loop.

Smart Phone Case and Wristlet with KAM Snaps pic22

18.  It will look like this.

19.  Center the Lid along the back, pin and sew with a 1/4" seam allowance.  This maybe should have been done a couple steps sooner so that I didn't have 2 stitch lines across the Back but I was when I got to it.

Smart Phone Case and Wristlet with KAM Snaps pic25

20.  Place the finished Front down right side up, I added a 1/4" top stitch to the top of each piece (Front, Pocket and Back).

Smart Phone Case and Wristlet with KAM Snaps pic26

21.  Add the Pocket right side up.

Smart Phone Case and Wristlet with KAM Snaps pic27
