I saw a cute heart keychain at Toastie Studio this week, and I couldn't rest until I tried one myself. I changed it by putting a layer of felt over my printed fabric so it is reverse appliqued. The edges are hand-embroidered.
In my hand:
It has imperfections because this was the practice one...I needed to get a feel for how it would go together. Normally after the first one, I make changes and do a second and third one before I get something I like. This time, though, I like it just like this! It seems just the right size and weight and sturdiness to be a functional keychain, so I think I will make a few more, with different fabric centers and different color combinations.
