Here at Lia Griffith HQ, we are all about finding functional solutions for everyday organization. I have to admit that us creatives can be a bit scattered at times, but luckily we are creative enough to come up with DIY projects to help with organizing 😉 I will say this: a sewing machine is your best friend for these situations! Our wash me wear me bags and make-brush case are essentials for traveling, and here is another sewing project to add to the list. Make our easy sew pouches as charger and earbud cases to keep your electronics organized and ready to grab when you are on-the-go!
I know that I am not the only one who struggles with getting my cords tangled. Good thing that these charger and earbud cases are an easy way to deal with this exact problem! To make your own electronics and earbud cases, start by choosing your fabric at your local fabric or art supply store. We decided to use canvas, but a woven linen would also work. Canvas is a great option because it is sturdier than other fabrics, and it comes with the frayed edge, which I love. For our earbud cases we also decided to add velcro instead of zippers or buttons so that it would be easier to open and close the pouches. I highly recommend using sew-on velcro instead of sticky velcro for this! The sticky velcro will only damage the needle of your sewing machine.
You can use these cases for so many other things too. Coin purses, jewelry cases, anything for the little goodies in your purse! Follow our step-by-step photo tutorial below to sew your own charger and earbud cases, and then use same technique to create any size of envelope pouch that you need. Once you are finished sewing your pouches, you can use our adorable iron-on designs to dress them up! Use the SVG file if you have a cutting machine, or download the PDF version if you will be cutting by hand. We chose copper vinyl for our pouches, but you can choose any color of vinyl that you want for your cases. The PDF version is available in copper and black designs, and you can print these directly onto iron-on transfer paper.
