Tassel USB Key Chain

Tassel USB Key Chain


I am always forgetting to charge the tablet I carry in my purse so I found the perfect idea courtesy of Urban Outfitters to solve this problem. The Tassel USB Key Chain is the perfect solution to my charging woes.  It is easy to make and requires just a few items you may already have on hand.  This tutorial will walk you step by step on how to make this easy but very useful item and it is totally no sew.  I used metallic faux leather for my key chain but you can use any leather or faux leather product.  If you don’t have leather or faux leather on hand you can head over to Michaels.com or Fabric.com to purchase exactly what you need.

What you will Need:

  • 1/4 yd of faux or real leather
  • One 1/2″ swivel clip
  • One 8 1/2″ USB charging cord
  • Hot glue
  • Scissors
