Use this PDF sewing pattern to make cotton fabric cord keepers to wrap up, or shorten, your small electronics cables and other cords.
This simple DIY cord keeper sewing project takes less than 20-minutes to complete, and these are 100% machine sewn--there is zero handstitching required in these easy to follow sewing instructions!
These are great for your small scale prints and longer fabric scraps.
Pattern pieces to sew cord organizers in 3 sizes are included:
Extra Small: Earbuds, earphone, phone chargers, or other fine cords.
Small: USB cables, keyboard or mouse cords, earbuds or headphones, tablet or phone chargers.
Medium: Small appliance cords for irons, blow dryers, curling irons, blenders, toasters, etc.
The finished cord keepers are easy to pop open by bracing them between your fingers (see last photo). Do not pull, yank, or otherwise force them open.
