Union Jack key fobs created with genuine leather – you can create them yourself! Or use bits and pieces of fabrics and ribbon you have on hand to create a one-of-a-kind key fob for yourself or as a gift. It’s so nice to have something attached to your keys to help you find them when digging for them in your purse!
I created these for the very first issue of the magazine Celebrating Everyday Life. I was so nervous trying to come up with a cool idea to create and share! I loved how they turned out though and it’s always a good thing to be pushed out of your box a little and made to think!
The Union Jack is one of my favorite embellishments. I have made pillows with the Union Jack created with ribbon and fabric, and have painted a Union Jack on furniture. I thought making a Union Jack key fob would be fun – and using leather to create it would be even more fun.
I bought a package of leather scraps from an etsy shop and set to work. I had purchased some faux leather to make a prototype of this project and there is just no comparison for the real thing. 100% genuine leather is 100% better 😀
I also like to make key fobs out of drop cloth fabric and embellish them with bits of lace and ribbon. Makes them a bit more girly and fun 🙂 If you need a gift for Mother’s day or Father’s day you can find my key fobs in my shop – I finally took some time to get them listed today.
I would also encourage you to consider purchasing a copy of the magazine ‘Celebrating Everyday Life‘ either for yourself or for a gift.
