While these can be used anywhere around the house, they’re especially nice for those things you travel with, like cords for the phone or tablet. Wrap the cord up and drop it in your bag whenever you’re heading out.
Think about sewing tools, too. Make them for your sewing machine cords and another for your iron.
This keeper was made with a cuff cut from a shirt and shows how a keeper can keep an iron’s cord neat when not in use.
These make great stocking stuffers and other small gifts, as well. Everyone you know must have cords to corral and they’re likely to appreciate this attractive solution.
The keepers, from Tricia at Leafy Treetop, can easily be adjusted in length and width to fit your cords. Plus, they’re very fast to make with just fabric, medium weight interfacing and velcro.
