How to make handy cord keepers

Make a handy cord keeper
If you hate electrical cords lying everywhere or scrunched up in a corner, then these are the perfect solution.  All you need to make these handy Cord Keepers is a piece of medium-weight fabric and a bit of velcro.  Make these for your own home, you can even coordinate with the colours of the room, or, make them as a gift for a friend.  It only takes 20 minutes to make, so let’s get going…

Wouldn’t it be so nice to keep your chargers nice and tidy in a bag or suitcase?
Print off the Cord Keeper Template.  Apply medium weight fusible interfacing to the back of one piece of scrap fabric.  Cut one piece of interfaced fabric with the template, and one without.  You will need 2 total pieces of fabric for each cord keeper. Cut two small 1 inch pieces of velcro.
 Place the two fabric pieces with right sides together.  Stitch around the fabric pieces, 1/4″ from the raw edges, leaving 2 inches or so open for turning.  Clip the corners close to the stitching line.  Notch the two curved ends of the cord keepers.

Turn the cord keepers right side out through the open space.  Press.  Stitch 1/8″ away from the pressed edges, to both secure the layers, and close off the open turning space.

Attach the velcro pieces to either end of the cord keeper.  One side should go on the front, and one on the back.

Wrap around your cords and chargers to keep things nice and tidy.  Who doesn’t like a bit of organization?
