Moda Twill Tape Key Fob

                             

Hi, I'm Tonya from Tonya's Sewing Room.  Today I'm going to show you how to make a Moda Twill Tape Key Fob from all those precut Twill Tape's you've been saving.




10" Moda Twill Tape
10" black webbing
key fob hardware
black thread (for your bobbin)
white thread (for the top)
scissors
measuring tape
crimping tool (for the key fob hardware)



Cut 10" of your Moda Twill Tape and 10" of your black (or your color choice) of webbing.


Line the twill tape up on the middle of the webbing and sew down both sides. Remember to use white thread on top, and black thread in your bobbin.  I used white thread on the first one I made and that white really stands out on the black webbing.  Black thread looks much better.


Once you have the twill tape sewed down both sides, fold the key fob in half and place the hardware in the middle just like what I have done.  You can get a crimping tool here like this, or see if your husband has something like it in his shed.  Mine did, thankfully.  I did wrap some extra twill tape around the tool to keep it from scratching my key fob hardware.  I crimp the hardware without the key chain ring on there because on my first attempt, I crimped the ring as well.  Oops.......


Add your ring once you have the hardware crimped on.........

That would be a great gift for our guild mmbers next Christmas. What size hardware and tape are you using?

I usually use mine in drawstring bags but there are always THE cutest twill tapes that I never buy because I don't know what to do with them. Now I do! Thanks for a great tutorial!!!

Great idea, Tonya. Very unique. I have a couple from jelly rolls, saved them, didn't know why but didn't want to throw them away.

What a great idea!!! I love the twill tapes and have often thought there should be something cool to do with them. Now all I need is the hardware.

You could also make a dog collar with the right hardware. Cool idea!

Barbara said...

Thanks Tonya! Would love to see more projects like this on the Bake Shop!

Michelle said...

Love it! But I don't want to make it. I'd rather buy one already made? Is anyone selling these?

Betsy O said...

I'm on my way to my sewing room to make a few of these. What a great idea.

Betsy O said...

OK, I made several, had a great time and then decided to use them to attach to my scissors by threading the strap through the handles and using the key ring to hang them up. I was so impressed with my idea that I attached another to my rotary cutter using the key ring in the little hole in the handle. (Olfa)
