I don’t know about you but between my husband, my kids, and myself we have a lot of cords….cords for every device…and they are always tangled!
So with back to school coming (and trying to organize my life before it gets here) I dipped into my scrap bin and whipped up a little army of cord keepers in an attempt to make our supply drawers useable again.
Here’s what I used:
*2 pieces of quilting cotton each cut at 3″ X 5″
*1 piece of felt cut at 3″ X 5″
*1 set of velcro “buttons” (You can also just cut a 1″ square of velcro tape.)
And here is how to make one:
#1. Cut 2 pieces of fabric and 1 piece of felt into rectangles that each measure 3″ X 5″
#2. Place one side of your velcro button in the center of your outside fabric a scant 1/2″ from the bottom and the other side of the velcro button in the center of your inside fabric a scant 1/2″ from the top. Stitch in place.
#3. Place your felt in between the outside and inside fabrics…like a sandwich. Align all the sides. The right side of the fabrics should be facing out.
#4. Using a generous 1/4″ seam allowance sew around the entire perimeter of your cord keeper.
#5. Using your pinking shears cut around all 4 sides.
And you are done!
All that is left to do now is untangle your cords and start wrapping them up!
