Default Ribbon Key Fob

Do any of you ladies make key fobs? I'm thinking of making a few for Christmas gifts, it looks easy to make. Here goes some instructions I found: http://www.jcarolinecreative.com/Mer...?Screen=KEYFOB

Can I get any of the supplies from walmart or any other craft store such as Michaels?

I've made tons of these! Unfortunately you won't be able to find the hardware at walmart or joanns or anything like that. I order mine off of ebay. http://cgi.ebay.com/Key-Fob-Chain-Ni...QQcmdZViewItem I also buy my webbing from him. I've never been able to find the 1.25 inch at joanns. They make great little gifts.

$2.00 each? Wow, was she a non-profit? lol. I made some by buying supplies from Crafter's Vision. I made them to do something for people who don't have girls, older women, etc. But once I made them and starting wearing one, I love it! I sell them for $5, and I think I am cheaper than most around with that price.

Here is the scenario: You drive and park somewhere, get out and put your keys in your pocket. You go to get the kid out of the car and hold them on your hip. Yup, keys are in that pocket. Then you have to shift squirming kid to the other side, get keys and switch again. I don't know how many times a day I did this.

With the key fob, you put it on your wrist. The 10 inch length of the webbing is the perfect length - without using another hand, you can grab your keyless lock thingy and push the button to lock the door.

It beats the hell out of fishing around in your black hole of a purse after loading groceries, etc. so they work for all types, not just moms of small kids.

I'm glad you painted that scenario! I just thought it was a regular key chain!

I make them and can't get a chance to get back to hairbows because I stay so busy with them. I sell mine for $10.00/ea which includes their name embroidered on one side, 12.00 for embroidery on both sides.

Man, I really wish I had an embroidery machine, or at least knew someone who did. There are so many things that I would like to monogram, etc. Bows, sippy cup inserts,blankets, key fobs, .....

If I only had the money and the time.
