Make a… key holder

Cross Stitcher - - Just For Fun -

Step 1

PLACE one back­ing piece of fabric on top of your stitch­ing, right-sides fac­ing. Sew across the top edge with a 1.25cm (½in) seam al­lowance. Fold the fabric over onto the re­verse of your stitch­ing and then run your nail across the fold to make sure it lays flat. Un­fold and place right-side up on the table.

Step 2

JOIN the re­main­ing two pieces of fabric in the same way. Place right-sides down on top of the joined pieces. Sew down both long sides and across the top, leav­ing a small gap in the mid­dle of the top for the rib­bon to pass through. Trim off any ex­tra seam al­lowance, then turn to the right-side.

Step 3

FOLD in the raw fabric edges on the re­main­ing open short side. Sew neatly across the open­ing, leav­ing a small gap in the mid­dle for the rib­bon to pass through. Push the lin­ing in­side the key holder, and then with the two gaps on the short side aligned, thread the rib­bon through both.

Step 4

SEW a but­ton onto one end of the rib­bon, and attach the split ring to the other. The but­ton can be used to pull your keys in­side the case.
