Iron, using a steam setting.  The steam helps the stitch witchery bind together.  Don’t be surprised if you need to iron the pieces several times.

After the three are fused together, cut them approximately 10 1/2″ each.  One will be short, but it is like 10″ so it’s not a big deal.  I gave the 10″ one to my little, who has a small wrist.

I love them.  Mine aren’t too colorful, but they are universally appealing for lots of women.  You can even make some in different colors to appeal to men, or add logos from old t-shirts if you want to add some personalized flair.

  1. I love homemade gifts! And this one is super practical. I always have a hard time thinking of what to make the men in my family (women are easy to create for, lol). These will be perfect for next Christmas!

  2. I wish I had better crafting skills. Give me a crochet hook and yarn and I’m great, but other projects are beyond me most days!

    I have to tell you though, I received a very similar key chain to this for a present from my mother (who bought it off a very skilled crafter) and it’s been my favorite key chain!

  4. The idea of having home made Christmas presents is the best. About two years ago we kind of gave up on gift giving between adults because none of us really Need anything. A homemade gift though is different, the perfect solution.

    Your key chains are really nice, I also like the thought of using them to mark luggage. They are one of a kind so no one else would have one at the luggage terminal.
