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.  This post contains affiliate links that if you click on them and make a purchase I will receive a small commission at no extra cost to you.  As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
