I consider myself a somewhat crafty person...that doesn´t say anything about having talent for it lol...but I try! As a mom of 3 kids I have to be crafty to a certain extent anyway hehe =D
I like to sew little uncomplicated things from time to time but since my sewing machine is broken I am doing it all by hand =X I ordered a new sewing machine so that will remedy this at least =D
I recently ordered bunches of stuff from Japankawaiiya, both her online shop and her Etsy store, among them tons of stickers, memo pads, pencils and other stuff. I have been hauling more stationery than makeup this month lol!
Since she had (and still has!) a sale on Etsy with everything being 50% off (excluding "sale" and "new arrival" items) I picked up a bunch of pretty Japanese fabrics, too, as they are usually great quality and come in the cutest designs.
I got half yards of various fabrics for as little as $2.50-6/each (depending on quality) which means I can sew lots of little things now! Half a yard is actually plenty of material, it can last for several pouches etc.!
I also got fat quarters of a few other fabrics...one of them being that pretty beige fabric printed with lace, pink roses and black kitties!
And that´s the material I used for my first pathetic attempt of doing a key cover! =) the stitches on top are less than perfect, ouch! =X
I was inspired by the cute key covers from HouseofJam (one of my favorite Etsy stores as you might remember) but of course mine came out much simpler and less perfect but still I like it and use it right now!
I didn´t have a pattern so I just made it as I imagined would be correct and I even lined it and put some medium thick interface inside. There are some things I will make differently next time...as you know: learning by doing! =)
It took me about 1 1/2 hours to sew this =X
All keys incl. my bulky car key fit inside completely so (at least) the size is perfect!
