I’ll soon be selling these key fobs in my shop, but if you’re crafty, you can try making one yourself. Simply use a piece of cotton webbing twice the length of the drop you want, sew on a ribbon or fabric trim, then fold the webbing in half and enclose the raw edges within the hardware. Be sure you place a cloth around the hardware before you pinch it shut with pliers, so as to avoid scratching the finish. The drop measurement will depend on the size of your hand, but five or six inches is usually sufficient, so cut your webbing 10-12 inches long.
I’ll try to post my favorite handbag and accessory supply sources in a few days, including a source for the hardware you see here.
