As I wait

As I’m waiting for my shipping supplies to arrive, I decided to try my hand at making key fobs. I already had all the hardware, webbing and fabric, it was just a matter of picking something that I liked to make into the finished product. The upper photo is my first and second attempts. The first, the fabric stitching is a little too far in …

I’m calling this “research”

Or more like a payday gift to myself. I picked up this beauty from Cut Finger Productions on Etsy.com (check it out yourself at www.cutfingerproductions.etsy.com).

Hopefully, this will inspire to me to post a “done” version …
