Purple & Brown Flower Keyring


Yep, another keyring.....
This time I took two different purples and brown and mixed them up together. The outcome is the flower you see above and below with a petal contrast that's more vivid than my usual flowers (with the notable exception of these), which I really like.


The flower is quite big but it's not heavy because the fabric weighs next to nothing to begin with.The beading in the centre is really the thing to watch when making these, as that's where any danger of making them weigh more lies.


Weight is always a concern when I'm making these flowers. I know that my keyring is already pretty heavy with all sorts of keys, so I don't want any extra weight on it. That's why I try to make these flower keyrings as light as possible.


But the airy nature of the fabric itself ensures that the resulting flower is very lightweight.
(The leaves -admitedly- may add some weight, depending on the type of fabric used. These are a fabulous, crisp, red linen which is a dream to sew and not too bulky.)



My cousin's keys are currently safely kept on this particular keyring as it has already gone to it's new home.
