heart shaped fabric keyholder.
I had to made a present for one of my friends, she loves my big heartshapes earrings, and she wants to have one, only not a earring, because she always were the same.

So we were agree that it must be a version for a keyholder. Its of fabric, only you can't see that no more and you can't feel it .
Its very solid and smooth. Because of the proces with i uses. Its me own proces, but there will be other solutions too.:-D
And of course you can use other things to clue on the shape or just paint him.
I hope that you will have fun with the making of this.:-D

    Step 12

    Now i haven't very good pict of this=S you must pick up a bruch and add with the bruch a thick layer of wood glue.
    I use for this project allways the better ones.
    I had before less expensive ones, but it wasn't so great after all. The fabric must be hard and smooth.
    For the better marks that will work, the others less.
    You must put three or four layers on both sides and the wings too.
    so you have become a hard and smooth layer, and feel no more the structure of the fabric.

  • How to make a charm / keyring. Flying Heart Keyholder - Step 13
    Step 13

    If you klick on the pict you see that the fabric is under a thick layer of several layers glue.

    paint the wings on both side, i have used some peral shell paint. And too you must if you choose of this kind of paint add several layers.
    Without is much less work

it kepts the fabric lightweight and it can stand the rain and other bad wather. I use this too for my earrings. So it works on differends shapes too. Only you must ask people not to push in the shapes. Some will do that=S They allways want to feel on my big earrings, because they don't beleave they are of fabric and still are light of weight.
Not the woodglue is damages but the layer of the paint or varnish or nailpolish is damaged . but please let me see your shapes and your versions.
again have a fun with this.
