Onigiri Japanese Rice Ball Keychain DIY

Onigiri Japanese Rice Ball Keychain DIY

Recently, my long-serving keychain decided to fail on me - it was the type where you screw to loosen or tighten the keychain - the screw decided to unscrew itself on several occasions and let all my keys loose (thank goodness I did not lose any of them!)

So, I decided it was time for a new keychain, and a DIY one no less.  I wanted a soft squishy one, just to contrast with the keys... so I thought why not make a plush type.  Here's how I made my onigiri (Japanese rice ball) plush keychain.  You can use the instructions to make any shapes you please - I've got examples at the end of the post.  Enjoy!

I made a moon and a cat one as well - let your imagination run wild and see what you come up with!  Do share with me what keychain you made!
