I saw this in DA and thought it was amazing. How do you guys think she is keeping the cross stitches together and keeping the corners from fraying?

Glued together? Or sewed on plastic?

I'm not sure if the stitcher that made this used this, but I have this stuff called Fray Check that I got at Jo-Ann's that smells a bit odd right out of the bottle, but hardens the edges of Aida cloth to stop it from fraying without having a visible effect on the piece. You have to squirt it onto the cloth and wait for it to dry, but after that, it works very well!

That is really cool. I might look into that. I love the 2 sided key chain I think it would be really fun to do.

OMGS CUTE! I did cross stitched keychains, but they weren't front/back. I sewed them onto small peices of cloth to keep the sides from freying and to cover the back. I've also tried (belive it or not) laminateing them, which didn't turn out to bad.

There's fray check for the edges, and fabric glue to hold the two pieces together. That's what I would do if it were me. ;3 But being me, I'd make it a cell charm instead of a keychain, 'cause I have a sick, sick addiction to cell charms...

Cell charms are a lot of fun! I have a cheap 10 dollar cell, but it's weighed down with Tamagotchi ones, and then I shoved ones that didn't fit there onto my DS and Neo Geo Pocket. I love finding vending machines that sell them, but never thought of cross stitching one!
