Keychain Wristlets

We like to give handmade gifts to our son’s teachers every year along with other special people in our life, but rather than go the route of baked goods we try to find something that is more practical. That’s why I was so excited to find a tutorial on Pinterest that worked well for both of these purposes.

How to make a wristlet strap

The tutorial was super easy to follow and this was one of the fastest and most fun projects I’ve done. I went to the fabric store (Beverly’s) and picked out a whole bunch of different colors of ribbon and cotton webbing. After cutting all of the pieces to size I just matched up coordinating colors and then stitched it down using a simple straight stitch.

The hardest part was clamping down all of the key fob hardware and putting on the key rings. I used needle nose pliers wrapped in duct tape on the end so the teeth didn’t scuff up the hardware. In the future I would just have used some Nylon-jaw pliers.

These were well received and I know that some of the recipients used them for their keys. It’s always a nice feeling that people are getting use out of what you gave them.
