In the Hoop Wristlet / Keychain

Wristlet / keychains are obviously on my mind. You may recall my recent post “How to Sublimate a Wristlet / Keychain“. This is a very similar style, but this time we are using the embroidery machine and a really cute embroidery file by Parker on the Porch. The file requires a 5 x 7 frame or larger. You can use a single needle embroidery machine or a multi-needle. I will be using my Ricoma EM-1010 multi-needle in the tutorial.

I may have had so much fun making these that I made 2 or 3… or okay I made 7! They are quick and easy (my favorite type of project). You will need only a few items to create these little cuties.

The file includes both 1.25″ and 1″ versions in 3 different lengths. You will need to use the matching keyfob hardware for whichever size you choose. The picture above is the 1.25″ size. The photo with the white vinyl keyfobs are the 1″ varieties. I, personally, love both! Here is a link to the hardware:

1.25″ Silver Hardware 1″ Silver Hardware 1″ Multi Color Set w/Pliers

1.25″ Gold Hardware 1″ Gold Hardware

Pick your favorite base material. I used cork fabric, faux leather, metallic faux leather and marine vinyl.

SUPRISE GIVEAWAY! Leave a comment on this post and you will be entered to win the Keyfob pliers and an assortment of keyfob hardware.

So, now that you have the materials you need, let’s get started with the tutorial:

    Looks like I’m going to have to find a way to get a 5×7 hoop for my SE600 machine. All the good projects really need a 5 x 7 hoop. Thanks as always, Lorrie.
