I want to make some of these "key fobs" I think they're called, but I don't know where I can get the thing on the end, nor do I know what it's called. Anyone know? All help is greatly appreciated! Thank you!

If you're talking about the metal ring it's a split ring for keys.  Walmart carries them, a few to a bag. I've never seen the other metal part anywhere so it might be something that Vera Bradley had made especially for their key fobs.  You could substitute a D-ring and stitch it in.

I've also seen the ribbon ends at Jo-Anns before.

Hi,
Since I also wanted to make some of these key fobs I did a little "googling" and found this tutorial on www.jcarolinecreative.com and if you type "key fob end tip" in the search box you'll get a crimp end tip that's 1 1/4" wide, which is perfect for the tutorial.  The end tips (ribbon crimp ends) sold on firemountaingems.com only come in sizes up to about 3/4".  www.jcarolinecreative.com also advertises here on craftster.org.

Hmm I'm new and I don't see eBay mentioned around here too often, so I'm hoping it's not taboo... I get my keyfob hardware from a seller on ebay who also has great cotton webbing for handbags.  I also have used jcarolinecreative.com for them, as well as lesbonribbon.com

Hope those are helpful!

I'm not sure if I want to give up my source or not, but what the hell! I just ordered a bunch from this site:
http://www.craftersvision.com/Key_Chain_Fob_Tip_p/kcf-al03112np.htm
I haven't received them yet, but I'm pretty excited to start making my own key fobs. The hardware does seem to be out of stock at the moment, but I'm sure she'll have more soon. She also carries great webbing, ribbon and fabric.

Good luck!
