This past Sunday I spent time catching up on some little sewing projects. I needed to sew some key-chains for the fabulous brick-and-mortar store, Textures. The owner, Maggie, a very kind and creative soul told me they were running low. I thought I'd take a few pictures of the journey from scrap bin to key keeper...
First, I pick sets of coordinating scraps from my large collection.
Then I cut them out in this curvy hourglass shape.
I add some fusible fleece to one side of the pair.
I pin them together and stitch,
leaving an opening for turning the piece.
I trim off the seam allowance to get rid of bulk.
After I turn the piece, I top-stitch around the edge.
Then I sew each piece to a big key ring
and add the final bit...a vintage button.
Finally, they are ready to carry someone's key collection!
