Button Key Fob

Introduction: Button Key Fob

About: I am the co-director, co-founder and lead instructor for the Customs for Urban Teens Program (CUT Program). Started in 2009 we take at risk youth and teach them how to build custom cars. I am a journeyman ma...

This is a quick easy 'ible using scraps from previous 'ibles. The idea is to use as much leftover material as possible.
Having said that I lose or forget my keys all over. This key fob with a little planing may help.

Step 1: Materials and Supplies

We will need:
needle and thread
leftover button on material ( yip coveralls)
eyelets and setting tool
15 minutes of precious time

Step 2: Add Eyelet

Find a suitable spot for the aluminum eyelet ( if I had brass ones lying around I would have used those). Cut or punch a small hole and install eyelet.

Step 3: Fold Over and Stitch

Fold over the ends of fob and stitch up. This may prove difficult as this is all seam material. Use a thimble if need be.

Step 4: Conclusion

So we are done the fob. Now your coveralls have button holes already in them. Some projects I have done do not. I will add button holes to my lunch box bag and such. Hope this inspires. Enjoy
