Making Key Chain Fobs

My sister Sarah got me started making these.  We made the pink one in the middle last September when she came to my house for a crafting extravaganza.  I had ordered some supplies from etsy to make some more of these because they make such nice gifts. 
I used grosgrain ribbon and the canvas I ordered...but then I started thinking about how fabric would look on them instead of the ribbon (mostly because I have a very limited supply of grosgrain currently).  So in the picture above the middle one on the right I made with fabric which I just folded and ironed with the edges tucked under.  It happens to be a scrap of civil war repro fabric from making the table runner a last week.
I really like the fabric one...it is my favorite!  These are very easy to make, I ordered all my supplies together from an etsy seller, and the supplies came with directions too!
