Nifty & Swifty - Ribbon Key Ring

If you are a crafter, you probably have a stash of leftover ribbon pieces somewhere. Confession, I have an entire box filled with bits of ribbon that are too pretty to throw away, but not really long enough to use for anything. I just can't bring myself to get rid of them. Crazy, but true.

This project started when I noticed I had a little of the Dala horse ribbon left after making the lanyard from my last post. I thought about adding it to my collection, but I know that once ribbon goes into the box it never gets used. Instead, I came up with a fun thing to make with it, a key chain. Although, you could use this as a zipper pull or a backpack or luggage tag.

Again, many thanks to Pauline at Gothenburg Collection for sending me this great Dala Horse ribbon. I love it!


  • 11-12 inches of 1 inch wide ribbon
  • 1 inch D-Ring
  • key ring
  • sewing machine


This is a really quick project, so don't blink.

Slide the ribbon through the D-ring and fold the ribbon in half, wrong sides together.

Fold under the raw ends1/2-1 inch and pin them together.

Stitch the edges together all the way around the ribbon with the narrowest seam allowance possible. Also stitch as close to the D-ring as possible so it doesn't slide around.

Just add the key ring and some keys and you are ready to go! From now on, I'll be sporting these precious little horses on my keys when I'm out and about.
