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:

 Embroideried Ribbon Key Fob Hardware Tutorial title pic

Embroideried Ribbon Key Fob Hardware Tutorial pic1

Embroideried Ribbon Key Fob Hardware Tutorial pic2

Instructions:

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

Embroideried Ribbon Key Fob Hardware Tutorial pic3

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.

Embroideried Ribbon Key Fob Hardware Tutorial pic4

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.

Embroideried Ribbon Key Fob Hardware Tutorial pic5

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

Embroideried Ribbon Key Fob Hardware Tutorial pic6

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

Embroideried Ribbon Key Fob Hardware Tutorial pic7

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

Embroideried Ribbon Key Fob Hardware Tutorial pic8

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.

Embroideried Ribbon Key Fob Hardware Tutorial pic9

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

Embroideried Ribbon Key Fob Hardware Tutorial pic11

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

Embroideried Ribbon Key Fob Hardware Tutorial pic12

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

Embroideried Ribbon Key Fob Hardware Tutorial pic13

13.  Add the Split Ring and Yay!!!

30 Days of KAM Snaps and Beyond!!! How to make Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips with Cover Buttons, Round Faced Metal Suspender Clips and KAM Snaps September 24 2014

Day #35

How to make a Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips with Cover Buttons, Round Faced Metal Suspender Clips and KAM Snaps

Today I am making Cover Button Pacifier Clips using Round Faced Metal Pacifier Clips (Metal Suspender Clips), Size 36 Cover Buttons, and KAM Snaps, of course ;).  I have had a lot of questions in the last year about how to make these clips so I decided to take it on.  Keep in mind that although I have rough tested these I in no way recommend you leave your baby alone with these as there are small pieces and if not done properly they may come apart and become a choking hazard.  I would recommend these clips under adult supervision only.  The maker and/or parent assumes full responsibility when using these pacifier clips.

That being said I did rough test these and was unable to break them apart after they had proper time to dry and cure.  I didn't take a hammer to them :) but I did my best to undo my hard work and was not able to.

Supplies:

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic title

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic1

Instructions:

1.  Using our Pacifier Clip and Supply Tutorials make either Ribbon or Fabric Pacifier Clips.

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic2

2.  Cut your fabric scrap. You will want a circle that is about twice the diameter of your button blank.  I cut out a Piece of Fabric using my Size 36 Template.

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic3

3.  Put your fabric piece in the larger assembly tool piece (RIGHT SIDE DOWN). When you look into the tool you want to see the back of the fabric.

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic4

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic5

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic6

4.  Place the button front (the domed piece) on top of the fabric. Leave the fabric edges hanging out.  Double check the transparent underside to see if your print is how you would like it.   Then press the cover button fabric edges down into the tool.

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic7

5.  Add a dab of E6000 Adhesive to the middle of the cover button cap before installing the Flat Back.

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic8

6.  Place the back cover button piece on top of your fabric and button front.

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic9

7.  Take the smaller piece of the assembly tool and with the open side down place it on the button back.

8.  Press down. You may hear a pop when the last bit of the button back slips into place. If you take the tool out and the button is not completely secured, just put it back in and press down again.

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic10

9.  When you take the small assembly tool piece off, the fabric edges will be secured underneath the button back.

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic11

10.  Remove the button from the larger assembly tool piece.  Tada!  My Cover Button is ready to be adhered to a Round Faced Metal Clip.

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic12

11.  Here a the Cover Buttons I made in just a few minutes.  Seriously easy, fun and so cute!

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic13

12.  Now take the E6000 Adhesive and put a medium size dab of glue on the back of the cover button about 1/2 of what would fill the back area of the back.  This glue is great to work with so don't overly worry about getting the amount right.  I was able to cleanly wipe of any excess off when I put on too much and I was also able to remove the button and add a little more when I under did it.  This glue is very forgiving.

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic14

13.  Now place the Cover Button over the Round Faced Metal Pacifier Clips and straighten and center your button.

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic15

14.  Press firmly and let set to dry and cure 24-72 hours as recommended by the manufacturer (E6000).

Cover Button Metal Pacifier Clips pic16

15.  These are my finished products.  I love them and think they turned out beautifully.  Below are my examples, completed and installed on Pacifier Clips.

Disclaimer:  Keep in mind that although I have rough tested these I in no way recommend you leave your baby alone with these as there are small pieces and if not done properly they may come apart and become a choking hazard.  I would recommend these clips under adult supervision only.  The maker and/or parent assumes full responsibility when using these pacifier clips.
