Sewing Tutorial: Make a Hexi Key Fob

A scrap buster that’s easy to sew, super cute AND functional? Yes, please!

If you’ve resolved to get organized and sew more in 2016, here’s a sewing project that should move to the top of your list – hexi key fobs! We made these functional little cuties using our Dritz® paper piecing shapes. To make the fronts of the fobs, we took our 1-1/2″ hexagon shapes and cut them into six 60° triangles. For the back we used the full hexagon shape; the finishing touch is the Dritz® key fob hardware. So, if you’ve got some fabric scraps you’ve vowed to use … this is the project for you! Clear out that stash, brush up on your sewing skills, and create a functional accessory or two. Win, win, win!
