Key Fob Sewing Project from Scrap Fabric

If you’re looking for a fun and easy sewing project, I’ve got the perfect one. These key fobs should only take a couple of minutes and they’re perfect for using up scrap fabric. I found a great list of projects that you can make with fabric quarters. After you check out the tutorial below, make sure to see Bev’s other project ideas.

Items Needed:

  • 3″ x 10″ fabric
  • 2″ x 10″ interfacing
  • key fob hardware – You can find it cheap here.
  • Something to cut with – scissors, rotary cutter, etc.
  • Pliers or clamp
  • Sewing machine!

Helpful Tools

  • Pins
  • Ruler/Rotary mat
  • Rotary fabric cutter

First, you will need some fabric and interfacing. I found this cute pattern from JoAnns for less than $3/yard on sale and a small bunch of this interfacing for $1.47 in the remnants bin. I didn’t know how I’d like this key fob, so I didn’t want to buy a bunch of it. I was happy to find this little bunch!

I cut the chevron pattern to 3 inches and the interfacing to 2 inches.

Place the interfacing on top of the backside of the chevron. Then, fold in sides 3/8″. That was such a pain for me to be honest, but I used some pins (after I made like 5 of them…) and that helped. Obviously. Duh, Hannah.

Anyways. Fold that in half like below.

Next, sew all the way around.

In order to turn this strap of fabric into a key fob, you have to get some hardware. I got some hardware from Etsy for a really good price.

You just need to clamp it with some pliers (protect the hardware with some extra fabric if the pliers aren’t covered in rubber or something.), and you’re done!

That was so easy, huh? I doesn’t take long to whip out a bunch of them, and they make fantastic presents!

Follow along. You know you want to.
