Hello,
I've seen all the cute key fobs, What are the directions for making them? I am somewhat confused. Are the threads showing on the back of the fob? Is the design duplicated and folded over?
Thanks for information.

you can use marine vinyl,pleather-fake leather or any type of non fraying fabric, it just needs to have some weight to it, I used the oly fun over a piece of vinyl and it worked well. Try different fabric,not all work ,you may have to do some experimenting to find what works for you

I just started doing some and used fake upholstery suede - brand name alcantara - and it worked just fine. Felt might be worth trying as well.

search youtube for machine embroidery key fob video, the design is only on one side,you add a piece of vinyl on the back and the last stitch line just goes completely around the fob, if you use the same color thread as your vinyl it is hardly noticeable. There are some designs that are double sided but they sew out as 1 piece then are folded together and glued.

There could be different ways of producing them. Instructions usually are with the purchase of the design. I personally have not made any but I would imagine that there more then one method.
