Step 1: Cutting Out What You Need...

Cut out 2 circles. I cut out two contrasting colors. One outer fabric and one liner fabric.

Cut out two of the half circles using the outer fabric.

Step 2: Half Circle Prep.

Press a small seam (1/4″) on the half circles

Sew a top stitch over those half circles

Step 3: Pinning...

Stack the circles wrong sides facing each other
Fold the ribbon in half (now 1″). Pin to the edge of the out fabric pointing towards the center.
Pin the half circles (right sides) to the out fabric circle.The straight edges should be overlapping.

Step 4: Sew....

Sew close to the edge around the circle.

Step 5: Press...

Remove pins, turn right side out. Press.

Step 6: More Sewing...

Sew a top stitch close to the edge

Step 7: Finish It Up, Dude!

Install the key chain ring
