I simply ironed some Vliesofix to the back of a few scraps and stitched a little picture onto a bit of homespun. To cover the stitching I just put another scrap on the back, popped it into the keyring and pressed the back on.
and popped one of my favourite little Auntie cookie characters in the back.
You could put a tiny stitchery in here or a favourite piece of fabric - you know those last wee scraps we save because we just don't want it to be all gone. You could pop in photos or nice papers.......I think they are pretty cute for little gifts , maybe a thankyou !
I might have to go and buy more...
Hi Guys, I'm glad you like these, the more I think about them the more ideas I have. I bought mine locally at a needlework shop for $1.50 each. When I got the first comment about where they came from I thought I could go and buy them and post them off to people , but I don't think they will have enough.
I just did a quick trawl through Ebay - search for keyring blank- and you'll find heaps. The little house one has an insert size of approx 45mm x 28 mm and the round one measures approx 42 mm across the insert.
Ebay has all sorts of shapes and of course the more you buy , the better the deal. The back sort of clicks in quite firmly and are hard to reopen.
Now I'll be stalking blogland to see what everyone else does with them.
*Oh and vliesofix is like wunder under , a double sided iron on adhesive used for applique.
