Braided Key Ring Tutorial

Hunting for my keys is my least favorite thing to do.  They can never be found when I need them, or are at the bottom of the bag, purse or hiding in a pocket.  This easy braided ribbon key ring is just what I needed.

There is a place to slip your hand in to make it ‘hands free’, and using your fabric and ribbon scraps make it a great stash buster.

4)  Pin the braid to the top and bottom of the piece- sew the ends down 1/8″ from the edge to secure

5)  Lay the second fabric piece on top of the ribbon- right sides facing

6)  Sew all the way around the piece, leaving a 2 1/2″ opening for turning

7)  Snip corners and turn right sides out, iron

8)  Sew all the way around the sides of the key chain, you might need to scoot the braided ribbons out of your way so you don’t sew it

Load up your new key ring with your keys.  Because the handle has a loop, you can hang on your key hook at the house, or quickly grab and go.
