WHAT YOU NEED:
- 7-Count Plastic Canvas
- Yarn- Yellow, Blue & Black
- Tapestry Needle
- Key Ring or Ring with Zipper Pull
- Minion Key Ring Chart (link to download is below)
To make the key ring, print the PDF chart for the Minion key chain design. The link to the PDF is available at end of the instructions.
Start by cutting out the plastic canvas in the shape of the downloaded chart. This will be the shape of the keyring.
Follow the chart and stitch the design on the plastic canvas using the tent stitch. Our tutorial on the tent stitch will help if you need instructions. When beginning to stitch on plastic canvas, cover the yarn tail with stitches.
After stitching the design, complete the background using the tent stitch. Fill in the whole background. Weave in your yarn ends underneath the stitches on the back.
Next, you will finish the edges of the bridge between the two sections with yellow yarn and an overcast stitch. You can leave your yellow yarn attached after this step and continue to use it for the whip stitch in Step 5.
Insert the ring for key ring or ring with zipper pull so that it is around the bridge.
Fold the two sides together, with wrong sides together.
Whip stitch the edges together. Our whip stitch tutorial will show you how to make this stitch. After whip stitching the edges, weave your yarn in under the stitches and then cut the yarn. The key ring is complete.
These Minion inspired keyrings (zipper pulls) can be used on backpacks, purses or as zipper pulls on clothes.
It is a fun project that even kid's can make and learn how to needlepoint.
