Last night I made this nifty keychain card-holder. I usually take the bus to work and have on more than one occasion missed said bus because I stuck my Orca card (Seattle-area public transit pass, courtesy of Glowforge) in a random pants or jacket pocket on my commute home. Hopefully having it readily available on my keychain will solve this problem.
The design was very simple and was cut out of one small piece of cream-colored 2 oz leather - Glowforge does the cut of the outline and the stitch holes, and it took about 2 minutes & 45 seconds.
Then, I did a really fun nail polish marbling technique on both pieces (you just pour a few drops of polish into some water, swirl, and dip), and then I stitched it together with some creme thread and added a key ring.
Here it is finished, with and without a card:
A little behind-the-scenes action:
Here are some other pieces of leather and some acrylic that we also marbled:
PS - I am noticing a theme to my projects, which is “Things to hold things that I might otherwise lose or forget.” If you missed my puppy pouch, here it is.
