DIY Personalized Fabric Key Fobs

DIY Personalized Fabric Key Fobs

DSC_6272 DSC_6274 DSC_6276Hello everybody! I hope you all are having a great week! The weekend is almost here! Today I am going to share a really easy handmade gift with you all, personalized keychains! I am a huge fan of Spoonflower and love to make personalized gifts with their fabric. I have made these easy key fob keychains for a while now with vintage fabrics, but recently decided to make some that were personalized for my family this year. Check out my how-to:

Here’s What You Need:

*Photo Editing Software (I use Photoshop Elements)

*Spoonflower Fabric Service or Printable Fabric

*Ruler, Marking Pen, Scissors

*Webbing

*Key Fob Hardware

*Hammer

*Sewing Machine and Thread

Instructions:

DSC_5990 DSC_5991Start in your photo editing program and make a new blank file. Make it to be 1″x9″. Drop a color of your choice in.Now open your photos and resize them to be 1″ square. Now move them into the 1×9 spacing them evenly. You can either do eight squares or four squares and then add a little saying with the text tool. Now save the keychain 1×9 piece as a jpeg. Open up the jpeg. Make a new blank file in the size of your fabric, then add in your keychain jpeg(s) spacing them at least an inch apart. Get your fabric printed at Spoonflower or print them at home on your printer.

DSC_6273 DSC_6277 DSC_6279These little keychains are really easy to whip up and they make wonderful holiday gifts for just about anyone on your list. I used Spoonflower because I think they have a wonderful quality, but you can use the fabric you can print on through your inkjet printer at the fabric store like JoAnns. I hope you will give this one a try sometime for yourself or someone you love! I’ll be back tomorrow with one last Christmas gift diy. Until then…

Happy Crafting!
