DIY Guy: On the go Cable Holder

The last thing you want to worry about when you’re on the go is losing your phone’s wall charger, headphones or your tablet/laptop charger. We’ve put together a simple way to carry these items without having them scattered around your home, office or car.

What we used:

  • 1/4 yard of faux leather
  • snap buttons with prongs (make sure not to use the ones for heavy duty fabrics)
  • x-acto knife
  • hammer
  • metal ruler
  • matte cutting board
  • pencil

Step 1: Cutting out the fabric

  • Cut your piece of fabric on the matte cutting board using the metal ruler and x-acto knife.
  • We used 6” for the width and 12” for the length.

Note: You can use any dimensions you feel fit for the products you are trying to confine.

  • Next, we cut a pyramid shape at the top which will serve as the overlapping flap.

 

Step 2: Making the “loops”

  • Cut out the pieces that will become the loops to hold in your items length wise down the fabric.
  • We made ours 1/2 an inch thick and different lengths as to hold different sized cords.
  • Our first was 1 3/4” thick, the second 2” and the third 3” thick and 1” in between each loop.

 

Step 3: Applying the snap buttons

  • Roll up the fabric with all of your cords inside to mark where it meets.
  • Mark this area with a pencil.
  • Follow the instructions of applying the snap buttons on their box.
  • Ours required a setting tool and a hammer
