Craft Corner: Denim Key Fobs


Denim! Key fobs! :) 

First ones that I've made and I thought I'd try it in denim before I moved onto vinyl which most of these are usually stitched. All scrap denim and all of these are done in the hoop on an embroidery machine.


I did both of these for my parents. I'm guessing you can tell which one I made for which. LOL Both these designs are by Designs by Little Bee and the embroidery file can be purchased at her Etsy store (her name is Melissa too... Bees unite! LOL)

I did this one for me from another designer. This is the front and back. I stitched the malamute side first and then tried to match it up to the other side when the final stitch put both sides together. Not quite matched up but not horrible either. :) My pups approve. 

I'm having fun creating these and I do like the denim look. So do you all use key fobs? Do you like the denim?

So, what crafty thing have you been doing lately?

  2. Isn't amazing what you can do with sewing machines? My mom bought one last year and for Christmas last year she made some neat machine embroidered gifts that I now treasure. I am currently working on a dragonfly cross stitch on hand dyed opalescent fabric, it is so pretty.
