  • Denim
  • Printed Cotton Fabric

  1. Cross Stitch design as per the kits instructions, using the included hoop, needle and embroidery floss. Once completed, use the mini square to draw a line in percil around the cross-stitched design.

  2. Layer the piece on top of 2 layers of printed cotton fabric, placing the denim layer last on the back. Pin the assembly in place. Stitch around the pencil line on 3 sides with a wide concentrated zig zag stitch, remembering to backstitch at the beginning and end.

  3. Remove the piece from the machine and stuff the inside with the pellets to give the keychain a nice weighted feel. Pin the opening closed making sure to not let any of the pellets cross over into your stitching area.

  4. Stitch the 4th side closed to secure the pellets inside the pouch, remembering again to backstitch. Trim the perimeter of the cross stitched layer around the stitch line with pinking shears. Then trim around the entire assembly with pinking shears.

  5. Then you are ready to snip all along the edges to make a fringe effect. Work the fringe with your fingers to make it nice and fluffy. Apply the grommet as per the manufacturers instructions and run the key ring though the hole.
