CORD WRAP SIZES:
For the small wrap, you will need:
- Scrap fabric – 2 pieces 3 1/2" x 5 1/2"
- Scrap fusible interfacing or fusible fleece – 1 piece 3 1/2” x 5 1/2”
- Sew on Velcro – 3/4" wide x 1 1/2" long
For a large wrap, you will need:
- Scrap fabric - 2 pieces 4" x 6 1/2"
- Scrap fusible interfacing or fusible fleece - 1 piece 4" x 6 1/2"
- Sew on Velcro - 3/4" wide x 2" long
STEP 1: CUTTING FABRIC & APPLYING INTERFACING
Decide if you are making the small or large cord wrap. From your scrap fabric stash, cut two pieces of fabric. The two pieces of fabric can be from the same fabric or two different fabrics.
Cut one piece of fusible interfacing (or fusible fleece).
Cut one piece of sew-on Velcro the needed size.
Fuse the interfacing/fleece to the wrong side of one of the fabrics according to the manufacturer's directions.
STEP 2: SEWING the Cord Wrap
Place the two fabrics with right sides together.
On one of the short ends, round the corners.
Stitch around the pieces using a 1/4" seam allowance and leaving a 2 1/2" opening on one of the long sides. (This opening will be used for turning the wrap right side out.
STEP 3: CLIP, TURN, AND TOPSTITCH
Clip the corners close to the stitching line.
Clip the curved end.
Turn wrap right side out through the opening and gently push out corners and smooth out the curve.
Fold under raw edges of the opening and pin in place.
Press cord wrap flat.
Topstitch 1/8" from the edge around the entire cord wrap.
STEP 4: ATTACH THE VELCRO
Attach the Velcro near the ends of the cord wrap - one to the front and one to the back of the cord wrap.
The photos show the positioning of the velcro.
The cord wrap is complete.
These cord wraps make perfect gifts for anyone, are great stocking stuffers and unique craft market items.
