Hi! It’s Amanda from Jedi Craft Girl. Don’t you just love these green apple key chains? They are super easy to make. It’s hard to sew just one – you might end up sewing a bushel!! What makes these so cute is using HeatnBond® Craft and quilt batting together – makes for a soft yet durable apple.

fabric for apple front and apple back
twill tape or ribbon
green felt for leaf
Begin by fusing HeatnBond® to the wrong side of your apple fabrics
Next, peel off the paper backing and iron the front and back pieces to the quilt batting. The HeatnBond® will fuse to the batting. You are making a little sandwich!
Using a disappearing ink pen, draw your apple shape.
Here you can see how I drew all the apples. You only have to draw them on one side.
Now, sew along the pen line:
Cut the apples close to the seam. Using a piece of twill tape, or ribbon, loop a small split ring through the ribbon and tack it down to the apple on the sewing machine. Cut 2 leaves out of felt and position them on both sides, covering the edge of the twill tape. Sew into place like this:
Add a larger split ring or zipper pull. I told you I made a bushel!
