DIY Tassel Leather and Embroidery Thread Keychain

My old keychain lately took a turn for the worst, and was ready to fall apart at any second. I figured it was high time to DIY a new one! 

Inspired by designlovefest, I decided to tackle a tassel keychain and put my own little twist on it.

I was so stoked with how this turned out - I love the look of the leather with the braids peeking through. Time to do one for my set of work keys as well!
