How to Sew Key Fobs and Personalize with Cricut

Key fobs are quick to make once you have the hardware and they are wonderful teacher appreciation gifts, stocking stuffers, gifts for service providers, neighbors and more.

Make yourself seasonal key fobs or give a set to someone special. Personalizing them with a name, initial or motivational words makes them that much more thoughtful.
