We have a key fob tutorial posted before. It requires sewing webbing
and fabric/ribbon together. If you sell your key fob, it's the best way
to make them. Please
follow the instructions here to see how to make key fobs professionally
My son wanted to make several key fobs for friends. Obviously, he can't
sew. So I thought of a "no sew" way. This is an easy project for kids.
What we need:
In this tutorial, we are using 1.25" polyester webbing and 7/8" ribbon.
. I have 1/4" tape handy so I use 2 stripes of 1/4" tape
to stick ribbon and webbng together. If you have 5/8" tape, it'll be
which are perfect for squeezing the mouth of
key fob hardware.
1. Cut webbing and ribbon to 10". Cut 2 strips of double sided tape to
10". Peel off one side of backing, stick them on webbing, then peel off
the other side of backing, stick ribbon on to webbing. Press to make
sure the ribbon is smooth. Heat seal
both ribbon ends.
2. Fold the webbing in half, line up the end of the webbing in your key
3. Squeeze tip closed with running pliers. The nylon jaw of the pliers
will protect the metal from being scratched. Make sure to clamp down
each end securely.
4. Ready to use!
How well the double sided tape hold the webbing and ribbon? The image
below is the same key fob after 4 months in use (never washed it
though). Still looks good.
