T'Other Half wanted something to stop his keys making holes in his pockets, so after a bit of research, I came up with this.

It is actually a sludgy green in real life.

That cutting mat has been on my sewing desk for many months - why was it only yesterday I noticed it's upside down?  :S

That's an excellent idea, @Bodgeitandscarper. My husband always has holes from his keys but as the bunch he has holds all the brewery keys and the pub keys as well as the house and van keys I would need one extra big pouch!!

My cutting mat is on a top that I can access on three sides so I'm used to it being every which way!

@Bodgeitandscarper I use my cutting mat every which way to avoid making all my cuts in the same area.

Lovely key fob.

That is very good @Bodgeitandscarper it looks like quite sturdy leather. Your embroidery machine has done well to get through that.  I bet your OH is happy.

@Lilian It's actually very soft leather, so not sure how well it will last.

That's a very clever design (and I like the poodle too)

My dad had one of those in the 1970's.  Worked a treat.

It's lovely @Bodgeitandscarper I think it was the visible grain that made me think it was firmer.

I like that...may even do one for myself  :D
I'm curious about the strap bit. Belt hook? Or. Keyring holder? Or both?
?
Have you considered using longer stitches of around 3.5 - 4.5mm? I found on my earlier leather sewing that the longer stitches look better.

@Bill The strap bit slides out to pull the keys inside, then you un fasten it again to let the keys hang out.

I used a 3.5 stitch length, but yes, I may try a longer stitch, that's a good thought.
