5 Minutes

It’s time to put all those fabric scraps you have laying around to good use! This project isn’t just fun and easy, but also economical and practical. It’s a real treat for all of us, sewing enthusiasts.

If you didn’t know about these key fob wristlets, you’re going to like them because they help keep your keys from jumping into a different dimension just when you need them. With this accessory, your keys will stay put on your wrist, inside your bag, or attached to your pocket, ready for action whenever you need them. Here’s how you can make it in a few minutes.

Prepare the fabric

Cut out a piece of fabric measuring 12 x 4 inches in size. Cut out a piece of fusible interfacing just slightly smaller than the first piece.

Place the interfacing onto the wrong side of the main fabric. Press the two layers together with your iron to fuse them.

Fold the fabric

Fold the fabric in half so that the two long edges meet. Keep the interfacing on the inside when folding. Press the whole thing flat.

Unfold the fabric. Fold each long edge to the center crease, again with the interfacing on the inner side. Press the fabric.

Fold the fabric piece in half once again and press it.


Stitch each long edge of the fabric piece along their lengths.

Finish the key fob wristlet

Fold the fabric in half so that the two short edges meet. Set the fob wristlet onto them and secure it in place by squeezing it with a pair of pliers. If you don’t want scratches on the fob, cover the hardware with a bit of fabric before you use the pliers.

Your new key guardian is ready for action!
