    I'm not sure how similar or different this is, but I know someone who was flogged for mentioning she made certain items for sale. She was told you are not allowed to solicit sales here. Of course I've seen many do it with no reprocussions, so...

    This is so cute. You said you found it on the Disign thread. Do you have the exact link? Every time I try to print it, it comes out blurry. Thanks

    Is there a way to do a "no see" key fob?

    Assuming that is "new sew" this is instructions I posted for some else that are "no sew" for using lanyards as your ribbon. And using one inch key fob hardware.



    I cut the lanyards into strips (12 inches works nice). I cut 7/8 inch satin ribbon for the back (you can use webbing also). I ironed7/8 inch Heat-n-Bond on back of the ribbon. Peel the paper off and iron ribbon onto the lanyard. I rub the part that is going to make the curve back and forth on edge of ironing board while it is still warm to help insure a smooth curve. Make a loop. I add a glue square or E6000 to secure ends. (I do this since clamp only has "teeth" on one side) Clamp the key fob hardware over the ends. Squeeze closed with pliers but protect the metal with an old towel or t-shirt.

    Hope that helps. :)

    Gosh...thanks! I had no idea what "no see" was! I even googled it! :rotfl2:

    Harbor Freight has a tool that is about $6.99 and won't harm the metal. Welding Pliers

    I wanted something unique and homemade for our FE gifts so I made drawstring backpacks. And yes, I know you can get drawstring bags at the dollar store but I wanted something much higher quality. There are two different designs but I forgot to take a pic before giving them out. Each one also has a laminated name tag attached.
