Key Fob Project


Project from the Create It Yourself Series


Learn the steps to create fun key fobs yourself using My Design Center on your Brother Dream Machine 2 or Luminaire or IQ Designer on your Baby Lock Destiny 2 or Solaris.

This is not an embroidery file offered in common embroidery formats. These are instructions that take you step-by-step through how to create design files yourself using your Dream Machine 2, Luminaire, Destiny 2 or Solaris machine. You must have one of the mentioned machines to complete this project. The instructions have specifically been written for these machines. It is your responsibility to know what you are purchasing. There are no refunds, returns on exchanges on this purchase. If you have questions, contact us before ordering. Read this entire page before ordering.

Use what you already have in your Dream Machine 2, Luminaire, Destiny 2 or Solaris to design key fobs yourself using built in shapes, fills, line properties, etc in My Design Center/IQ Designer.

Finished fobs will measure 11.75″ before being folded in half and installing 1.25″ key fob hardware. Stitch the key fobs using marine vinyl, cork fabric, pleather or any non-fraying fabrics.

These instructions will show you how to create key fobs using built in shapes, how to apply the fills, background and line properties. The instructions also include step by step instructions for stitching out the fobs. The key fobs shown below are samples stitched using these instructions. Note all motifs stitched on the fobs below may not be on your machine but you can use any fills available on your specific top of the line Brother or Baby Lock embroidery machine.

Following these step by step instructions will help you become familiar with My Design Center/IQ Designer that is a feature only on top of the line Brother or Baby Lock embroidery machines.
