Mouthy Stitches Key Fob

Looking for the Mama Said Sew give away?  Click here.

As part of the MS swap, we are making a key fob as the one and only extra goodie to go into our parcel.  I have never made something like this, so I kind of made it up as I went along.

I wanted something semi-firm so that it holds its shape, but not too hard as I hate shoving my hand in my purse and getting stabbed by something at the bottom.  I decided to go with Echino linen/cotton mix and a bit of interfacing, which seemed to do the trick.


I got a little carried away and made two.  If I am honest, the only reason I stopped is because I only had two hooks from U Handbag.  Above you see one side, then below you'll see them flipped over.  I love, love, love the little car and scooter, but then realized maybe my partner wouldn't want to use it for her car keys.  Maybe a happy little bird would be better suited.


So, partner, might one of these float your boat?  Or will I try it again with something else?  Please speak up...I am more than happy to make changes as I want you to be excited when it pops up in your parcel.

They do Cindy - I love them and this is exactly howI'll be making mine as I have no webbing and all the tutes suggest webbing...I was thinking about interfacing and good to know it works!
