Hi all!  I just spent a month in Korea on vacation and found these great little crosstitch keychain kits and kind of got hooked on making them for gifts. Two of them are similar because I made the one of the Korean bride and groom for the Asian cultures swap and then couldn't resist making one for myself too. The other are a gift for my friend and grandma.

They each have two sides with stitching, so in the first pic you will see the front and the second is all of them flipped over on the back.





And my very first crossstitch for the Asian cultures swap:





These were my first cross-stitching items ever. I bought 3 more keychains in Korea so I can make more as gifts. Each one only cost $4 for the kit that had the needle, thread, keychain and Aida to stitch on and I thought that wasn't bad. The keychains I bought by themself only cost $1.50. Yay for cheap and thoughtful gifts!

What a good idea! I've been wanting to make something from the SuperMario Bros cross- stitch pattern I have for my little brother, but it's not exactly like he needs a tea towel. Thanks!

Thanks! Although it's not exactly my idea. They were little kits I found in Korea. They come with a plastic keychain that has a plastic cover you pop on over the work once it is done. It looks like they have some on this website: http://yarntree.com/webcatlg/webcat23.htm

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
