Put those pretty small scale print in your fabric stash to good use making these useful fabric cord keepers.

This pattern comes with instructions and pattern pieces to make 3-sizes.

Extra small is for very fine cords like those used for earbuds. Small is for things like USB cables, or keyboard or mouse cords. Medium is for appliance cords like irons, hair dryers, blenders, toasters, etc.

These take only 10-20 minutes to make! Super, super fast and also great for using up your longer scrap fabric pieces.

All three sizes are 100% machine sewn--no hand stitching necessary.

The pattern pieces come with useful markings to help you whip these out in no time and help you align the fabric print so it ends up where it can be seen.

Last two photos show how to easily pop these open. Pulling on them is hard on your hands and will yank out the snaps.

Finished Dimensions:
• Extra Small: 1 3/8" x 1 3/8" (3.5cm x 3.5cm)
• Small: 1.5" x 1.5" (3.8cm x 3.8cm)
