The crew here at Sewing With Scraps all LOVE their gadgets to death but there is nothing worse than a bunch of tangled cords laying about our space. That’s why we love this cord keeper pattern.
This simple project can help save you hours of frustration from detangling knots. The project is perfect for beginners, easy to make in batches and addictive. We suggest cutting out several at a time. This way, you can stream line each step of the project because once you wrap this around one cord, you will want them on all!!
Most cord keepers are made with velcro but we love the simple snap closure. We are not exactly sure why so many stitchers overlook this easy to install notion but want to help. Here is a quick video to show you just how they are to install. Then the next time you need a quick closure, we suggest you consider the simple snap! It’s a wonderful alternative to the standard button.
So go ahead, grab your scrap stash and start picking out your brightest pieces. This will ensure easy spotting when in storage. We suggest you consider making a collection of sizes for each of your gadgets. Like using the larger size for your sewing machine extension cord, the medium size for the iron and the smaller one for you pedal plug. This way, you can just look for the color and know that they all go together.
