- Sewing Machine
- Colored Thread
- (optional) baby oil
I first cut out two circles and one rectangular out of leather.
I used chalk to mark the corners. First I made the first four marks(like 12, 3, 6, and 9 on the clock). I then added two extra lines in between each of those.
Before I begun sewing I placed a drop of glue between the two layers to keep the pieces together. I started stitching from the "first" mark, skipping three, to the "fourth".
After I got the triangle shape I stitched towards the "fifth" mark and started stitching the triangle again by skipping three marks. I almost forgot to sew in the holder loop.
I made sure to finish all triangles and stitch along the edges. Then I erased the chalk and applied some baby oil to the surface and the edges of the finished key chain.
