Instructions (Key Chain Wristlet):

  1. First you’ll cut two pieces of coordinating fabric using your rotary cutter so they each measure 3” wide by 13” long. Iron each side in, toward the middle, approximately ¼”. Fold strip in half, iron. (Tip: I find it helpful to use spray starch to get a crisp fold.) Repeat for second fabric.
     
  2. Lay one fabric strip on top of the other to the folded edges are on opposite sides. Pin together. Stitch down the length of each long edge, as close to the edge as possible. Trim dangling threads using Thread Snips. If necessary, trim short ends of fabric even.

  3. Decide which fabric you want on the outside, hereinafter called: right side. Fabric on the inside of the finished product: wrong side. Fold in half, matching ends, with right sides together. Slide D-ring onto strip.
     
  4. Match ends and stitch forward and reverse several times approximately ½” from ends. Trim ends approximately 1/8” from stitching.
     
  5. Flip strip right side out and move D-ring to hang at the stitching that closes the loop. Stitch ring in place with the same forward and reverse stitching as close to the ring as possible to secure in place.
