My 11 year old daughter made a little cord keeper, I think we can use some more of these! Very easy to do...just cut rectangles out of batting and lining fabric about 5 x 9 1/2 inches. (Start with the batting a little bigger and cut it down to size after quilting) Then cover the batting with strips of fabric, starting at one end and working down to the other. You can use regular seams through the batting, or raw edge appliqué. Do some quilting and decorative stitches. Now trim it down to size. Put the lining and quilted piece together, right sides together, and stitch all the way around except for an opening on a side to turn it through, she stitched across the corners on one end to shape them a bit. Trim corners, turn and press, topstitch around the edges closing your hole on the way by, and put Velcro on the ends. Quick easy project! You could also do it like the journal covers in my tutorial for a fun look :-)

I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing! After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now designing kits and patterns. Some of my designs have been in Keepsake Quilting and Art Quilting Studios magazine! I teach classes online, and am starting to do more traveling and teaching. I also have many tutorials, including some on YouTube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
Free card pattern and also an e-book, and a quilt planning checklist!
