Mobile fone charm tutorial

By Christy Amular - January 02, 2009

Happy new year everyone! Here's an easy mobile phone charm tutorial to get you into the crafting spirit! It's super fast and easy to make and best of all it doesn't require any sewing skills. A mobile phone is quite easy to locate inside your purse if it's got a cute colourful (or subdued) charm dangling from it. Let's get started!

1. Assemble the supplies.

You'd need some colourful fabric ribbons of your choice, buttons, waxed thread or strong natural twine, needle and thread and a scissor.

2. Directions. Cut fabric ribbon, about 12 cm. in length. Fold into half. Cut twine/waxed thread about 12 cm. in length. Fold twine into half and make a knot leaving about 5 cm length from the top . Measure width of ribbon (usually it's 2 cm). Make another knot leaving about 2 cm from the top.Insert smaller loop into ribbon and cut extra twine left. Fold ribbon flap on the top leaving 5 cm length on the bottom. Fold top flap like a doggie bag. Secure with thread and add button. Fasten button securely and tightly. Alternately, you can replace twine/waxed thread with a metal ring to make a ribbon key holder.
