Homemade Stylus Boondoggles

Yesterday I had a vision, okay so it was more like a thought.  I was looking for a pen, but couldn’t find one and thought gosh darn it, where are the gosh darn pens?  Okay, so I was a little bit more colorful in my language, but you don’t need to know that much lol.

As I was swearing, I looked over at a keychain that I was making for a customer and it clicked, what if I made some pens that look like keychains, but they have a pen inside?  So I tried and was not very successful lol.

You cannot see the other side of the pen because I wanted to take a picture with the gold on top for some odd reason.  Anyway, the other side doesn’t look very good.  The pen does not want to  cooperate, but perhaps I didn’t give it enough chance.  Regardless, it won’t work because it’s too bendy and I just don’t think anyone will want to use this.  It’s not refillable because once I weave the material around the pen, that’s it, it’s permanently in there.  If I could find some sort of hard plastic to  weave around that you could push the pen in, perhaps you can refill it.

My next thought was a Stylus pen for your touch screen tablet and cell phone.  I have a mini stylus and I started making a keychain that the nub could attach to, but there is a component in the stylus that my keychain does not have that will make the nub work.  Unless I find out what that is, I will not be very successful.  I am not going to give up on this because I really think it’s a cool idea, but rather I am going to find alternative ways to make it work.  I will get there, eventually.

Anyway, been working all day making earrings and keychains for Valentine’s Day and now it is definitely time for bed.  Until next time!
