If you want to inspire and stimulate your creativity, just take a look at all the hundreds of Amy Butler fabric designs that are available. When I laid my eye on the Amy Butler Lacework Grey fabric design from her Lotus Collection, I fell in love with its various floral patterns. It did not take me long to come up with the idea of making a beautiful Amy Butler fabric key chain.

The project is as simple as it gets and it allows the beauty of this Amy Butler fabric to shine. I picked two Amy Butler fabric designs for my key chain: Amy Butler Lacework Grey and Amy Butler Floating Buds Sage. In addition to the fabric, you need a metal key chain with ring and some double sided glued interfacing.



I cut out one of the flowers from the Lacework fabric which will make one side of the key chain.



Place the cut out flower on to the interfacing.



I used the Amy Butler Floating Buds Sage fabric to make a loop which is going to connect the flower and the key ring.



Lightly zig zag stitch the loop to the flower. Now put the Floating Buds fabric on the other side of the flower and iron all pieces together which is being held together by the double sides glued interfacing.



The last step is to zig zag stitch all around flower the outer edge of the Lacework flower. I choose a green thread that perfectly matches the Amy Butler Floating Buds sage fabric but provides a beautiful contrast to the Amy Butler Lacework grey fabric. Now you are done!

That’s so cute piece of art, I like your idea of using a fabric to make a new thing. Who will think of a little or a simple things can be used in making a key chain, that’s being very artistic. Such a useful idea to e shared to others, I was inspired with this to make my simple decoration of my own; a personalized key chain or other accessories is really good.
