How to Make a Chapstick Holder With Keychain

23 March

 Learn how to make a Chapstick holder keychain so you don't lose your favorite lip balm.  This is an easy sewing project that's perfect for beginners.  You don't even need a pattern to sew Chapstick holder; just cut your fabric in the dimensions given.  


My grandmother was a talented seamstress.  She tried to teach me to sew, and I even made a few things for 4-H when I was a kid.


Unfortunately, I lack the spatial ability to sew much more than a straight line.


The sewing genes skipped a few generations though.  My daughter is becoming quite a talented seamstress.  





She'd love to make a career combining her two loves: sewing and theater.  Right now, she's hoping to work in historical fashion and possibly in theater.


Until then, she's been helping me.  I was constantly losing my lip balm, so I had her teach me how to make a Chapstick holder keychain.


Okay, so she really did sew Chapstick holder and I mostly just took photos and watched.


But I promise you, this is an easy sewing project.  If she'd let me touch her sewing  machine, I probably could have figured it out.

How Do You Make a Chapstick Holder Out of Fabric?


It's pretty easy to learn how to make a lip balm holder.  You will need fabric, batting, thread, scissors, and a keychain.  


She didn't even use a pattern to make a keychain Chapstick holder DIY.  She just cut the fabric and made it.




What Are Chapstick Holders Made Of?


A keychain Chapstick holder DIY can be made of fabric, neoprene, or faux leather.  I used a Baby Yoda fabric, but feel free to use another material.


How Do You Attach Chapstick to a Keychain?


I always have my purse with me, so learned how to make a Chapstick holder keychain.  I don't clip it to my keys; I clip it to my purse instead.


You can use just a keychain ring for this keychain Chapstick holder DIY, but I like these keychain clips.  There's a ring and a clip so I can clip this right to my purse.


Best Lip Balms for Your lip Balm Holder


I'm a bit of a lip balm addict.  My lips are dry all year, so I use it every day.  I don't like most store bought lip balms because they dry out my lips.


However, I do really like Burt's Bees lip balms.  They don't dry out my lips like other brands.


I also make my own lip balms.  I like this herbal lip balm recipe and this lemon meringue essential oil lip balm recipe.


Since I like to have lip balm on me all the time, I learned how to make a Chapstick holder to clip on my purse.





Keychain Chapstick Holder DIY Supplies

To learn how to make a lip balm holder, you will need the following:



How to Sew Chapstick Holder


Let's learn how to make a lip balm holder.


Step #1


Cut two pieces of fabric 10 inches long and 3 inches wide.  Cut one piece of Wrap n Zap 10 inches long and three inches wide.




Step #2


Cut two pieces of fabric 5 inches long and 2 inches wide for the keychain holder.




Step #3


Lay down one piece of the 10x3 fabric right side facing up.  Lay the other piece of 10x3 fabric on top right side down.  Lay the Wrap n Zap batting on top.  Stick along two sides and the bottom.  Leave the top open.  Turn right side out.





Step #4


Lay one piece of the 5x2 fabric right side up.  Lay the other piece of 5x2 fabric on top right side down.  Stitch along three sides and leave the end up.  Turn right side out, press down, and stitch closed.




Step #5


Fold the small piece of fabric in half and place the keychain inside.  Then tuck the ends of the small piece into the end of the larger piece of fabric.  Press in place and pin if needed.  Sew the top to close the large piece and secure the loop inside the large piece.




Step #6


Fold up the bottom of the long piece towards the top.  You want it to fold over about three fourths of itself.  It would be a good idea to grab your lip balm or lip gloss tube and make sure it fits.  


Stitch along all three sides, left, right, and bottom.  Leave the top open to place your lip balm tube inside.



 

And now you know how to make a Chapstick holder!  I hope this inspires you to sew Chapstick holder of your own.  I can't wait to see what you create!
