Hello everybody!

This week I’m showing you how to make these super easy DIY felt keychains. They are really easy to make, completely customizable and so soft!

 

What you’ll need:

  • Felt
  • Needle and thread
  • Jewellery rings
  • Keyrings
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Stuffing

 

The first design

Step 1: Drawing the design

The first step is to draw your design onto the felt. I decided to make an Y, the first letter of my name. If you make a letter, make sure to draw it a bit broader than you want your final design to be. Make sure you can fold the felt over.

Step 2: Sewing

Sew along the lines of the design, making sure to keep a little gap. Then cut off the excess felt.

 

Step 4: Sewing again

This is optional, but after you’ve folded it inside out sew along the sides again, this is to give it a nice look. Still make sure to leave a gap!

 

Step 5: Stuffing

To stuff your keyring, use stuffing, cotton or excess pieces of wool/fabric. You can choose to stuff it a lot or keep it a bit flat. After you’ve stuffed don’t forget to sew the hole closed.

Step 6: Adding the keyring

Use a big needle to poke a hole in the fabric and insert a jewellery ring. Then you can attach the keyring to the jewellery ring.

 

And that’s it for the first design!

 

Second design

For the second design I made this little flower. I started with cutting two of the main pieces and sewing them together. After stuffing Iadded two little petals in the hole I left open and sewed them in place. Then I used glue to stick the other two pieces to that. I attached the keyring using the same method as above and that was it!

I really like how this turned out! What do you think?
