Crafty Friday-An Update and Handmade Key Fobs


Whew!  My first post this week!  It's been a little crazy around here.  My sister and I were on our girls' trip.  We have done at least once a year since my dad passed, sometimes more than one.

On the last day of our trip, our mom took a fall.  We were able to see what happened on the camera we installed in her "apartment." When we got back from our trip, I went straight to the hospital.  She ended up only having to stay one night, but we have been visiting her more often since then.   She had multiple tests and blood work, but nothing is broken, and they aren't concerned it caused any damage. Thank goodness!  My father-in-law (age 93) has had a few scares recently, too.

My sister had her six-weeks-after-chemo and radiation CAT scan.  All clear for now!  Repeat in six months.  I pray it stays that way.

My blood pressure has gotten out of control.  I'm starting a new medication and I have an echo-cardiogram (not the same as an EKG) on Saturday.  Yes, Saturday.  Weird, right?  I was born with a bicuspid aortic valve, so I have to get checked every so often.

Now the fun part:

I made these key fobs!  It was super easy!


Actual materials used:

To make it, cut a 12x4 piece of fabric and 12x4 piece of interfacing. Fuse the interfacing to the back of the fabric.  With right side down, fold fabric in half longways and press.  Open up the fabric and turn each side to the middle and press.  Fold over once more and press.  Sew a straight stitch along both sides of the fabric. Fold so that you bring the two raw edges together and press.  Sew the short raw edges together to make a loop.  Give it one final press.  Attach the hardware, and that's it!
