Fabric Flower KeychainSupplies needed:

Scrap Fabric measuring app. 3″ x 26″

Felt in coordinating color

4″ Ribbon

Keychain (Mine were 1 1/2″)

Glue & Glue Gun

Fabric Flower

This is a perfect gift to have around. I try to keep these around for teachers, bus drivers, friends birthdays, hair dresser, pretty much anyone! My 10 year old even loves hers. So if you’re looking for something to do with all those leftover pieces of fabric, here you go!

To start with, cut out your fabric. I made mine 3″ x 26″. This is no exact science. You can honestly make it any size and it will work out. I ended up with about a 3″ flower. If you want it bigger, make your fabric larger, likewise if you want it smaller, make your fabric smaller.

Then, fold your fabric in half.

Now hold the small end with the knot. You are going to twist your fabric and then wind it around the knot. The tighter you wind

the smaller it will be. I like to try to twist my fabric so the edges are on the inside and not seen but honestly I’m sure I’m the only one that notices them anyway! I like to put a few dobs of glue as I go to help hold the fabric in place.

Next take your ribbon and fold it around the key ring. Glue the edges together.

Place your felt on the back of the flower and cut around it so it’s the exact size. Then glue the bottom edge of the ribbon between the fabric and the felt. This just finishes the back and helps make the keychain stronger.
