I am currently working on a lot of DIY’s at the same time and among them is a bag. I don’t know when I will finish but because I wanted some key-chains to add to the bag (or any bag) I decided to make a separate post about how I made them.
I hope you like this post and if you do don’t forget to follow, comment, like and share.
I’m gonna start with the tassel key chain and for that you’ll need the things in the picture and scissors which I forgot to add.
I started by cutting the fake leather in a somewhat rectangle shape and then I began to cut fringes and if you want you can measure and be more thorough than me (which is pretty easy to be.)
Then I tied my leather ribbon in to a loop and added it with some glue on the inside of the fake leather.
Then I began to roll the fake leather adding glue as I went.
I used some mini clothing pins to keep it together while the glued dried. While I waited for the glue to dry I took some more leather ribbon, measured and cut a piece that would fit around the base of the tassel and then I sewed the ends together.
Finally I glued the leather loop to the base and added the jump ring and the key chain clasp.
To create the feather key chain I used the things in the picture below as well as scissors and pins.
The first thing I did was to paint the the styrofoam ball black in case the feather trim doesn’t cover it completely. Then I added my eye pin through the center of the ball
and then I bent it at the end to keep it from sliding out. Then I started to glue the feather trim to the ball taking a few pieces at a time. At first I used small clothing pins to keep it in place but then I used pins which worked so much better.
Finally when the glue had dried I removed the pins and attached the jump ring and key chain clasp to the loop of the eye pin. I also cut some of the feather trim away to create a more rounded shape.
Here are the results:
