Scrapbusters (long strips): wristlet keychains
I am physically unable to throw away fabric scraps. If it's over an inch, it goes into storage instead of the trash. What to do...since I'm not a quilter. There was a huge stack of these strips which were finally made into these simple wristlet keychains (so much nicer than clutching them in your hands). They can also be clipped to a zipper pull to convert a pouch to a wristlet.
- 2 x 12 inch fabric strip
- 2 x 12 inch interfacing strip (pellon 50?)
- keychain loop
Fold in half lengthwise and then each half in half. Press if needed and sew long ends together.
String the keychain and bring short ends together. Sew and zigzag ends.
Move keychain to the new seam, flip seam to the inside of the loop. Sew (about 3/4 inch from the edge) to enclose the keychain.
And it's done!
