This is a quick-fix crafty project that brings a bit of "handmade" to a high-tech world.
These make great craft-stall items and are an excellent gift-idea for men or for women of all tech-savvy ages.
The colourful fob makes USB sticks (flash drives.. or whatever you want to call them) easier to find and less likely to fall out of a bag or pocket. It also makes each one distinctive. (Am I the only one who has trouble telling them apart and remembering which files are on which stick?). The USB drive is removable/interchangeable and it tucks down safely inside the little sachet when the strap is snapped closed, and it can clip onto a keyring or a key clip inside a handbag. Handy!
