A Handmade Holiday 2013 — Key Fob


We are SO excited for the holidays this year! That said, it’s a little hard to believe that it’s already December and there are only 3 weeks left before the stockings should be hung and the cookies left out for Santa;). Those three weeks will go by fast, so it’s time to start making your list, checking it twice, and sew, sew, sew!! We’ve got a slew of fun, easy, and fabulous projects for you — a little something for everyone on your list. We’ll be posting at least one a day between now and the big day, so check back often, grab your supplies and have fun!



Key Fob
We’ve been hearing a lot from new Pellon® Project Designer and Leigh Laurel Studios author Karin Jordan lately, and we’re loving it! Karin has great style and consistently offers tutorials that are easy to follow and are somehow exactly what we need exactly when we need them;). This quick and easy Key Fob is a great example! It’s a fun way to use up your favorite fabric scraps and try out some of those decorative stitches on your sewing machine that always seem to get ignored. It makes a great stocking stuffer or teacher’s gift and can truly be customized to suit any person on your holiday list.

karinjordanKarin Jordan blogs at Leigh Laurel Studios. She grew up under her architect father’s drafting table, making mini models out of the cardboard scraps that fell to the floor. At age ten she purchased her first sewing machine from a neighbor who taught her sewing basics. A former magazine editor and antique American folk art gallery director, she now loves being a blogging, stay-at-home-mom. She regularly draws upon her degree in art history for inspiration for her sewing, embroidery, craft patterns and activities with kids. Karin’s husband is remarkably patient while she does her best to balance being a full-time assistant to two children under four with her creative endeavors. Her goal? Do something creative every day.
