Cord chaos. Can anyone relate?
Cords for phone chargers, ear buds, e-readers, cameras, iPods, Kindles, tablets….tangled and mangled.
But thanks to a great tutorial found on the Leafy Treetop Spot blog, I cut some 5-inch scrap squares and charm squares into 2.5 inch x 5 inch strips, added lightweight fusible interfacing to one side – stitched, turned, topstitched, added some little Velcro hook and loop squares – and Voila! I have cute little reversible cord keepers.
Mycords are now neatly contained. You could even color code cords: Red is for reader, indigo is for iPod, purple is for phone, key lime or kelly green for Kindle, etc.
I loved this cute and colorful little camera print. It’s from the Snapshots fabric line by Riley Blake. So, of course, that became my camera cord keeper.
And since I have an (over)ABUNDANCE of scraps – I made just a few extras! Won’t they make great stocking stuffers? Or maybe I’ll use them as little thank you add-ins for some holiday orders.
Only 12 days until my first Fall craft fair (YIKES!!), so I need to put the pedal to the metal and keep on sewing!
