I had almost forgotten. But for my one-to-one keychain swap I myself also made something. I didn't know much about Aranka. She told me she liked fishing with the boy nextdoor, her first favorite animal is an owl, with cats on the second place. She seemed a tough girl, one that doesn't like a lot of pink, bows, flowers or hearts. So I made a keychain with bright, but tough colors with an owl, the letter A and a catshead.

The keychain as a whole.
The pattern for the owl you'll be able to find here. The A I improvised with two sheets of felt. The stich is one that probably has a name. I learned it as a 7 year-old when staying at school during lunch I got bored and the 'overblijftjuf' put some fabric, needle and threat in my hands to make a heart for mothersday. :-) The catshead I also improvised with Fimo-clay. That had also been a while, but I managed to make something of it, despite the fact it all had to be so small I could barely hold it.
