Corral Your Cords with This Attractive Solution!

Cords are everywhere these days and they always seem to end up being a mess. Use your scraps to create order by making cord keepers to contain them.

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.

Cord Keeper from Fabric Scraps

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.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
