Key and Padlock Leather Rings
[Easy level tutorial]

If you ever wanted to design your own rings this tutorial shows you a creative and very easy way to do it. All you need are a small piece of leather and little charm. I prefer to work with leather because it is such a robust material. It lasts forever and rarely loses it’s shape. In case you don’t like leather then felt, faux leather or PVC material are a good replacement for it. 
But what makes this rings so cool is the connected design- in my case the key and the padlock. The “couple” rings would make a great gift for your best friend, your sister or your mom. In that case I would recommend to go for less “romantic” charms. Pick something you and your loved ones have in common. Maybe a little reminder of a trip you did together (Eiffel Tower and Bicycle charm) or a hobby you both love (scissors and sewing machine charms).

Here you will find a huge collection of all types of charms: link.

Cut 2 thin leather straps based on the circumference of your fingers. You won’t need seam
allowance.

Secure the ends of the threads on the other side of the straps.

Fold the straps to form a ring and sew the ends together with two parallel stitches.
Then secure the thread ends with a knot.
