cheeseburger-keychain-hyy-3

Hi everyone!  Hungry for a cheeseburger? I have a pattern with step by step photos to make your own cheeseburger keychain. This would be perfect to attach to a school bag or a plain black or brown tote as a charm or just simply with your keys!

This cheeseburger was crocheted using joined rounds, where we chain 1 at the beginning of each round and joining to that ch 1 to complete the round. However, if you prefer crocheting in continuous rounds, that is also fine.  Just ignore the slip stitches and chains after each round.

There are 7 parts to this cheeseburger, but it’s a very easy pattern as each piece (except the cheese) have the same stitch count. 4 of the pieces require stitching together and the rest need to be glued together.

I used cotton yarn for the majority and used acrylic yarn for the buns as I couldn’t find any light brown cotton yarn at home. The finished burger measures about 5cm x 5cm (2 inch x 2inch).

ASSEMBLY

cheeseburger-keychain-hyy-9

  1. Embroider sesame seeds on top bun using cream coloured yarn. Secure ends with a tight knot.
  2. Whipstitch one underside of bun to top bun – stitching front loops to back loops.
  3. Fill with stuffing halfway through stitching. Do not over stuff.  Continue to stitch shut.  Do not weave in ends yet.  Repeat steps 2 & 3 for bottom bun.  Weave in and hide yarn ends for the bottom bun only.
  4. Flip bottom bun so the underside is showing.  Glue patty followed by cheese on the underside using hot glue gun.cheeseburger-keychain-hyy-10
  5. Glue the corners of the cheese down to make it appear the cheese has melted.
  6. Glue tomato on top of cheese then glue top bun onto tomato.cheeseburger-keychain-hyy-11
  7. With the cream coloured yarn end from the top bun, create a loop on top of the bun – insert yarn in needle and weave into the bun, and push out onto the top of the bun, in the centre.  Insert the needle back into the centre and create a small loop. Weave the yarn in and out of the bun several times to secure it.  Cut yarn.
  8. Finally, insert the loop into the keychain/keyring.

You can skip steps 7 & 8 if you don’t want to create a loop on top for the keychain.  Instead, just attach the keychain directly onto one of the stitches on top of the bun.

This, along with the donut would be my favourite crocheted food so far. It’s simple enough but I like how it really looks like a mini cheeseburger – especially with the melted cheese.

You can also make use of this as a fridge magnet – just remove the keychain and glue a strip of magnet on the side.

I have attached mine to my bag and I love how the colours match! It was definitely not intentional!
