IMPORTANT INFO: This is a PDF SEWING PATTERN you download and print at home.
Put those long scraps and pretty small scale florals in your fabric stash to good use making these useful fabric cord keepers.
This pattern comes with pattern pieces to make 3 sizes.
Extra small is for very fine cords like those used for earbuds. Small is for things like USB cables, or keyboard or mouse cords. Medium is for appliance cords like irons, hair dryers, blenders, toasters, etc.
These take only 15-20 minutes to make and are 100% machine sewn--zero handstitching required!
The pattern pieces come with useful markings to help you quickly cut the interfacing pieces and align the print so it ends up in the right place.
These are easy to pop open by bracing them between your fingers (see last photo). Pulling on the corners makes it much harder to open them and you'll pull out the snaps.
