Easy Valentine’s Key Fob

I love simple, instant gratification crafts. (I also love involved, frustrating, threaten-to-throw-the-sewing-machine-out-the-window projects too, but this easy key fob is most certainly not one of those)  Let’s get some supplies together, shall we?

First, you need webbing. I bought mine from The Ribbon Spot. It’s the same thing some belts are made out of, so if you’re pressed for time you could try some thrift stores for your materials. You could also try a fabric or craft store if you live near civilization (I, however, do not).

You need key fob hardware. Again, one stop shopping- I got mine from The Ribbon Spot (and no, I’m not an affiliate and they’re not paying me, I just honest-to-goodness like those guys).

Then, grab some craft felt. I bought mine in a rather large bag of remnants from a local thrift store. Cut out some hearts from your felt. I cut mine so they were roughly the same width as my webbing.  Cut your webbing to a length that looks good (mine was at about 8.5 inches). Line up your heart pieces (three facing up, three facing down). Make sure you leave a little margin on the top and bottom to clamp your hardware. Stitch a line straight down the middle of the hearts.

Fold the webbing, meeting the ends together. Carefully clamp (it helps to lay a piece of fabric on the metal so your pliers won’t mark it up) the fob hardware on the end.

And there you have it: pure key fob bliss.
