How to make Macramé Key Ring Fobs

How to make Macramé Key Ring Fobs

Key rings are a fun and functional item for shoeboxes. They can be attached to zips, bags, backpacks and belt loops as well as keys. I like to make key rings for my shoeboxes for older girls and boys, as well as for families and elderly people.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to make simple key ring fobs using basic macramé knots. Please don't be put off by the long post and the number of photos – I wanted to cover all the steps. If you get lost, I have included a link to a video that makes it all very clear.
