Project by Michelle Roberts


Have you got some scraps of the stunning new collection ‘Indigo Elements’ by Stuart Hillard, and looking for a project?


Follow my tutorial to make a super cute and useful key fob

Please note – photos show two key fobs being made





Materials to make one key fob

  • 3” x 10” piece of your favourite fabric

  • 3” x 3” piece of your favourite fabric (contrasting to the previous piece)

  • 2” x 10” Bosal fusible fleece interfacing

  • Gutermann thread

  • Key fob clasp


Haberdashery items

  • Quilter’s ruler

  • Rotary cutter/scissors

  • Iron

  • Cutting mat

  • Basic sewing supplies



Lets get sewing…


Fuse the fleece to the centre of the wrong side of your chosen strip of fabric.





























Fold and press over the raw edges, either side of the fleece.



Fold in half again and top stitch along all four edges (1/8” from edge).



Thread key fob clasp through and lay the two raw edges together, with your machine set it the longest zig zag stitch (mine was 7mm) sew over the two edges to join.



Take your 3” square and fold in half, open and fold the raw edges to the folded centre line. Fold in half again and press.



Clover wonder clips are great for holding this in place.























































With the join about ¾” from the clasp, wrap the band around and tuck the raw edges inside. Hold in place with a Clover wonder clip.


Sew along each side 1/8” from edge to secure.
