TUESDAY TUTORIAL-- Fabric Key Fobs: My favorite way to use my scraps!

I love this Key Fob tutorial from Buttercupity! I've seen key fobs made from cotton webbing and fabric or ribbon sewn down the center, but these are 100% fabric, making them way cuter (and cheaper to make!)

They take a little longer, but I think the outcome is well worth it! I tested out the tutorial back in October (because I always seem to lose my keys- This has been a big help!) I've been trying to make a bunch since November. Finally, I was able to this week and they turned out great!
I get the keychain hardware from Everything Ribbons at etsy, and their prices are great.
What's your favorite way to use your scraps?
**I'm going to try to feature a new TUTORIAL every TUESDAY! If you have a handmade item you'd love to share with us, let me know. I'd love to feature you!**

Oh my goodness those are TOO cute! I love them! I so need one now! Are they in your etsy store? Is there a way to make them open and close so I can hook them to my stroller handle or purse strap? I am ALWAYS digging for my keys :-P
love Love LOVE them!

Hi there, these are lovely, unfortunately I don't seem to be able to access the blog where the tutorial comes from. Would you by chance be able to let me know how you made these?

Thanks so much!
