Steps To Make A DIY Cord Holder
Are you done with gathering all the supplies? If yes, then hurry up and read this DIY.
Step 1: Cut the design shown in the image below from the fabric. For each cord keeper, you wish to make, cut two pieces of fabric and one piece of interfacing.
Cut the fabric
Step 2: Then, on the backside of one of the fabric pieces, iron the lining. Now, Pin or clip the two pieces of fabric together, right sides together.
Join the pieces together
Step 3: The next thing you need to do is to stitch all the way around the pattern with a 14″ seam allowance, leaving a 2″ opening to flip your keeper’s right side out. The curved edges should be clipped.
Curve the edges
Step 4: Turn the cord keeper right side out through the space you left with your turning tool. Press with a warm iron. Topstitch around your cord keeper with a 1/8′′ seam allowance to close your turning gap.
Stitch the fabric
Step 5: Place the rough side of the Velcro in the center of the cord keeper, right under the topstitching. In an “X” design, stitch in place. Place the Velcro’s soft (loop) side on the bottom of the cord keeper, in the same position as the top piece, but on the other side, and stitch it in place in the same way. And that’s the end of it.
