How to Make a Key Chain Hand Sanitizer Holder
In the current climate everyone is carrying hand sanitizer. I keep losing mine in the bottom of my purse so I decided to make a key chain hand sanitizer holder so I wouldn’t constantly be searching for it. I wanted something that would allow me to store my sanitizer but that would also make it easily accessible. This pattern came to mind. It is a super simple sewing project that anyone can make. This pattern requires both machine and hand sewing but can be made in about a half an hour using fat quarters or scraps of fabric. Once I was finished with this project I fell in love with it and I know you will too.
I used cotton fabric that I had on hand. I purchased the fabric from Fabric Frenzy if you want to purchase your own fun cotton fabrics but you really only need a small amount so you may have enough in your stash. Of course you could always order from JOANN Fabric & Craft Stores, Hobby Lobby or Fabric.com to get exactly what you want for your sanitizer holder.

Take the 2″ x 2″ square of fabric and fold the raw edges to the center and press. Fold in half to enclose the raw edges and press again. Top stitch along both sides using a 1/8″ seam allowance. Fold the tab around the key ring.
Step 6: Layer your fabrics
Lay one main piece on your work surface right sides up. Place your pocket piece on top of the outer piece so that the bottoms align. Attach the tab with the key ring to the pocket piece so that the key ring in laying on top of the pocket piece. Place the other main pattern piece right sides together on top of all of the layers and clip.
