The Snap To It Key Fob & The Kristine ID Wallet - A Good Pair!

Michelle Burke

As you would probably guess, I made several Snap To It Key Fobs as I was writing the Snap To It Key Fob pattern. Since the release of this free pattern, I have made a few more - they are so fun to make and fast to sew up! As I was writing the pattern, I kept thinking that the Snap To It Key Fob would make a great wristlet strap for a wallet or wristlet. I had to try it out of course, so I made a Kristine ID Wallet and matching Snap To It Key Fob.

I think it turned out so cute! I combined Essex Linen in Teal with a pretty floral called September Blooms designed by Shopcabin for Hawthorne Threads. The print comes in two sizes and I used the “little” size in the Peacock color. I then added Squared Elements in Honeycomb by Pat Bravo for Art Gallery Fabrics for the lining of the Kristine ID Wallet.

By making the exterior of the Kristine ID Wallet out of two fabrics, I hoped to accent the floral fabric and make it coordinate with the Snap To It Key Fob even more. I really like how the blue linen makes the floral fabric take center stage!

Those snaps are turquoise SnapSource metal snaps, I love the way they look with the fabrics. I also love the copper-colored hardware I used for this Snap To It Key Fob. I got this pretty 1¼” rose gold/copper finish key fob hardware from Bagmaker Supply.

I think the Snap To It Key Fob and the Kristine ID Wallet make a great pair, don’t you? I like that by adding a Snap To It Key Fob to the Kristine ID Wallet, you can snap your Kristine ID Wallet to a grocery cart, baby stroller or strap of a purse, making it very convenient.

If you don’t have the Kristine ID Wallet pattern you can purchase it from the Uniquely Michelle Craftsy Pattern Shop, the Uniquely Michelle Website Shop or the Uniquely Michelle Etsy Shop. The Snap To It Key Fob pattern is a free pattern that can be found in the Uniquely Michelle Website Shop.

The Kristine ID Wallet Pattern Gets Some Publicity!

Michelle Burke

It is fun to release a new pattern and then have one of your testers write a blog post about it! Marilyn Brandt wrote about the Kristine ID Wallet on her blog, Shades of Bold on May 8th. Marilyn did such a great job sewing up not one, but two of these wallets during the testing phase for this pattern. I have already featured one of her wallets on my blog last Friday, but I want to show both of her wallets together in one blog post.

I love this brown and blue wallet! The small flowers on this fabric are perfect for the smaller size of this wallet. I also like the brown snap. Marilyn said that she likes to use regular snaps instead of magnetic snaps for a wallet like this and I think it looks great!

Although you may have seen pictures of Marilyn's bright green Kristine ID Wallet in a previous post, I added a couple more pictures of it here. Again, the green snap goes perfectly with the fabric on this wallet. Marilyn and I both like Snap Source for these snaps - they have nice long prongs and are easy to install with their special "attaching tool." The color selection that Snap Source has is really amazing as well!

I love how the underside of the envelope flap matches the lining of the zipper pocket in the next picture!
