Tutorial: Moustache keychain

If you can't choose gift for your dad, son or boyfriend - you can make а beautiful and stylish gift by your hands. Yes, it's possible! Here I write how to make leather mustache keychain.
You can buy this moustache key chain in my shop.

You will need:
a. A piece of genuine leather – thickness 0.03-0.06” (0,7-1,5 mm)
b. A thick needle or awl
c. Scissors
d. Flat nose pliers (2 pairs)
e. A key ring
f. Thread
g. A sewing machine
h. Moustache pattern

1. You can print and use the pattern included or draw your own.

2. Outline the moustache pattern twice оn the back side of the leather. Also outline a rectangle measuring 0.8x2.4” (2x6 cm).

3. Cut them out. It has to look like this.

4. Pass the strip into the ring and bend in half. Join the edges as shown. Position the strip with the ring between the two cut-out moustache pieces as desired.

5. Sew together at a distance of 0.1" (2-3 mm) from the edge. Sew through twice where you put strip with the ring.

6. If one of the edges overhangs, trim it with scissors.

7. The other solution is to attach the chain (not thin one)

Your keychain is ready!
