Key Fob or Bracelet, You Decide!
If you are like me (and I am sure many of you or) you are deep into making gifts for the people you love/like most. Yesterday, suddenly, I grabberd all those lovely hand-painted silk strips I had been compulsively weaving and a handful of key chain rings and started combining the two to make key fobs. This is not a new idea. I have been using one of those that I made for myself months ago. I love it because it is easy to find in my purse and it’s really very pretty and durable. The one on top is actually two layers and edged with beads. The other four are one layer and not edged because there was no sewing to cover up. All had double key rings.
I showed these to Elena. She first asked: why the double key rings? My answer was in case someone has a lot of keys. She then pointed out that the double key rings could be used as a finding for a bracelet. Smart kid!
None of these are long enough to fit anything but a tiny baby’s wrist, but today I am going to do this with a longer piece because it’s such a great idea.
What gifts are you making this year for family and friends. Are you using the Mirrix hand-painted silk to make some of those gifts?
