Hand Sanitizer / Lip Gloss Key Chain

I am so happy with this project!

I have been wanting to make a lip gloss key chain for a while and finally had the chance to do so. I LOVE IT! They turned out just the right size 🙂 I was very pleased.

Once I had the lip gloss version done I was very happy to find a similar size spray bottle that works perfectly for liquid hand sanitizers! It would be awesome for perfume as well.

Once I had this key chain ready, I couldn’t resist making another size for larger hand sanitizer bottles. This works great for many 1 oz flip top bottles that usually hold gel hand sanitizers.

Since this project is so small, I used my purple thang a ton while sewing.

I used them for the first time today and I already love them. Perfect to add to your key ring or purse. These are also super cute as gifts! And since they don’t take much fabric, they are very affordable.

One-Tie Face Mask & Case in Action

I had a few requests for shots of the face mask in action! Here you go 🙂

I have to say, while I have face masks with elastic and with ties, I definitely prefer the ties! I don’t know about you, but I don’t like the feel of the elastic rubbing against my ears. While sewing the ties is not my favorite thing to do, I do appreciate the comfort it brings verses the elastic. The tie in the back also allows me to adjust the fit to a snugness that works for me. I also find it much more comfortable without interfacing.

I made my ear ties, 0.5 inch longer than the elastic suggestion in the pattern, but you can adjust to your preference.

I was worried originally that the mask might slide a lot with just the single tie, but I haven’t found it a problem. I have even worn it out for walks on windy days with no issues! And when you’re not using the mask for a moment, it hangs easily around your neck.1img_7136sm

I also use my little case for my mask absolutely all the time! First, I loved the cat print shown above. Second, I have one attached to my purse, so I literally don’t leave home without it.

I highly recommend the little case for convenience. Here is the free pattern.
