Here's a cute little project made out of some red fabric scrap, paper, plastic, black ribbon, and a tag form a t-shirt (washing label?).

A key holder! This one is meant for the keys to a bicycle lock.

The motive is from a bicycle ad from an old magazine.


I used a small piece of velcro to keep it closed.


Funny detail: the key ring is fastened to a label from a t-shirt.

I also made one with paper from a phone book, meant for a house key. But I guess it'd be a bad idea to have your own name and address on it Wink


All I did was layer equally sized: plastic sheet, paper, and fabric. Placed the tag for the key ring in the middle, and fastened all of it together by folding the ribbon around the edges and sewing it on. I sewed by hand to make the stitches less visible. The velcro is the kind with glue on the back, and I just cut it out so it's a small circle.

By using paper you can pretty much have whatever motive you want on the outside.

Any questions and comments welcome! Thanks for looking Cheesy

I love these! Using the tag to hang the keys is a great idea. Did you treat the paper so that water won't hurt it? They look great!

Genius! I'm going to make one of these too!
I have this supremely old Louis Vitton keyholder for my house keys, that could use some replacing.~

Haha, I was just about to answer your question, then  I saw this Tongue
Anyway, I only put a plastic sheet on one side of the paper, so I guess it's not very waterproof if a lot of water should be involved. 

...a plastic sheet on both sides of the paper, and maybe some kind of tape along the edges could do the trick...The tape would be hidden under the ribbon that's sewn along the edges, so the look would be the same as the ones here Cheesy

If you end up making something inspired by this, I'd love to see it! Cheesy
