- (1) 2 x 7″ fabric scrap for exterior key fob
- (1) 2 1/4 x 7″ fabric scrap for interior key fob
- (1) 1×7″, (1) 1 1/4×7″ & (1) 2×2″ pieces medium-weight, fusible interfacing (I used Craft Bond by Pellon)
- (1) 2 x 2″ piece of plastic canvas (not pictured – sorry about that)
- (1) 1/2″ Magnetic purse snap kit (comes with male and female sides, and 2 washers)
- (1) 1 1/4″ key fob hardware
- Basic sewing supplies
- Pencil or other temporary marking tool
Here we go: Center and apply the 1″ interfacing to WRONG side of the exterior piece and the 1 1/4″” interfacing to WRONG side of the interior piece following manufacturer’s instructions. When centered, there should be a 1/2″ margin on both long edges of the interfacing.
On the WRONG side of exterior, measure and draws a faint line 3″ from one short end and 1″ in from the long end.
Place a washer on the exterior so that the bottom edge of the washer is at the horizontal line and the slits in the washer are centered over the vertical line. Place a pencil into the slits and mark. Cut the slits with small scissors. I sort of puncture the fabric with my scissors more than cut but you have to be careful not to use too much pressure or the slit will end up too large. Insert the prongs of the male side of the snap into the slits from the RIGHT side of the panel. Fold the prongs down toward the center, overlapping one another.
Fold 1/2″ of both long edges to the WRONG side using the interfacing as a guide. Press.
Make it Pretty: On the RIGHT side, measure and lightly mark lines 1/2″ from top and bottom edges of magnetic snap. Topstitch along these lines. Topstitch 1/4″ from both long edges.
Topstitch parallel lines 1/8″ apart across panel between the seam lines from the previous step. Do not sew into the area surrounding snap as illustrated below. There should be a total of 6 lines. Set aside.
Attach Interior: Fold 1/2″ of both long edges of interior to the WRONG side using interfacing as a guide. Press folds. Stitch both long edges using a 1/4″ seam allowance.
