New keychains

I haven't gotten much stitching done this week. I think I only did about one thread-length's worth, so I didn't bother even taking a picture of my progress. Instead, I'll post about what I actually did make this week.

While with my niece (for those who don't know, she is my craft booth helper), we came across a cute idea to make some wristlet keychains. I bought the supplies online, and very impatiently awaited their arrival. Most had come in, but we were still waiting on the ribbon to be delivered. I couldn't stand it, so I ran to Hancock (so sad that they are going out of business) and got a spool to try it out and see if we like it.

I went over to my mom's house (my niece lives with her), and we made them up. I must say, they are much easier to make than I expected, and they went much quicker than expected, too.
They are so cute, though! I can't wait for the rest of my ribbon to arrive to have more designs!

The very next day after making these, I went online again and ordered even more supplies. I only ordered a small amount initially to see how easy they are to make and see if we like it. We really did enjoy making them, so much so that my mom wants to help making the next batch, too. 

I have another craft fair coming up in a few weeks, and I can't wait to put these out for sale!
