How To Tuesday: Cord Keeper

Who doesn't love a useful scrap buster? Today on the blog we have the perfect tutorial for you! 

This is a super cute solution to the tangled cords and wires that most of us normally end up with. And our cord keeper is so easy to make! 

To get started you will need 2 pieces of scrap fabric and 1 piece of fusible fleece that all measure 2.75" x 5".  And then you'll need a closure of your choice, such as a button, magnets, or snaps. 

First you will iron your fusible fleece to the wrong side of one of the scraps. 

Then place your fabrics right sides together and sew along all 4 sides, making sure to leave a one inch gap at one end. 

Clip corners, turn right side out, and top stitch all along four edges. 

Lastly, use your favorite closure method for the two shorter edges: 

 In our case we used a button and button hole. Snaps are an easy option too and tomorrow on the blog we'll be doing a video demonstration on how to add snaps to a project! 

I hope you all enjoyed the quick how to and find it as useful as I do! 

Happy sewing y'all,
