key chain tags {sewn}

i was inspired by an article in one of my ClothPaperScissors magazines that was on fabric. i wanted mine to be smaller and able to withstand almost anything- so when i was done sewing and stitching up my fabric scraps, i used a fusable vinyl to seal the tags. here is my little stack.

i used white cotton fabric, stencils and spray ink to add color to my fabric first. the fabric pieces are 2 of cotton with a single layer of fleece for some batting in between the layers of cotton. i then stitched on my square which are about 1 inches by 1.5 inches.

i did add the little black and white heart to add a little pop on that colorful background as well as some shrinky dink charms that i made by stamping, punching and cooking. when was the last time you used shrinky dink material? is kind of fun to watch the film shrink up; i like pulling that out every once in a while.

this is the back....once i was done with the sewing- i cut out 2 pieces of the fusable vinyl and used the iron to heat through and attach. for an added texture- i did a zig-zag stitch around the vinyl.
