Today I finally bit the bullet, stopped being a chicken (is it just me or is it much easier to stick with what you know, regardless of how simple the project I’m putting off is?) and got out my key fob hardware to make some key rings…
Oh my goodness these really couldn’t be faster and easier! Why am I such a procrastinator?!
I ended up making 20 for my upcoming markets in no time at all…
My method (for those who are interested) was:
I took a 12 inch by 5 inch rectangle, ironed it in half width wise, opened it back up again, then ironed the raw edges to the middle fold I just made. Then I opened one side back out and slotted a 1.25 inch by 12 inch piece of iron on fleece/pellon/felt then ironed it all back over in half. Then I quilted 5 evenly spaced lines of quilting down the length, folded it in half length wise, and clamped the hardware shut over the raw ends with pliers.
This week I’ve also made a rainbow of skirts which you can read the full post with pattern information over here…
And made a QAYG framed purse with tutorials here…
Quite a bright and colourful week really!!
Can’t wait until tomorrow. Next on the list is a bunch of market bags for my shop.
Although perhaps I might have to tidy up first because boy oh boy is my craft room a pigsty!!

In other news I’m having my local launch party tomorrow night with all my local contacts who have been asking to see my stuff for ages but haven’t had the chance yet.
– Think a relaxed party at my home with wine, cheese, chocolate (of course) and hopefully lots of shopping 😉
Eeek should be really fun and I can’t wait!
So that’s what I’ve been up to this week… Amidst it all I’m trying to work on my online shop so I can get all my products online, but it’s hard to find the time. It’s coming though… promise.
