Loose cords drive me nuts, especially headphone cords at the bottom of my bag. Practical and simple to make, here is your step by step tutorial on how to sew a headphone cord organizer.
Materials & Supplies
Create a paper pattern using dimensions below. You can round off the corners too.
It is best not to pin leather as permanent little holes can be left behind. I suggest taping the boarder of the pattern to the leather. Then you can cut out leather.
Hand sew a shank style button onto the back side of leather. Center the button 1/2"-3/4" away from edge.
On the other side of leather tab, cut a slit down the center starting 1/2" away from the edge.
Button width + shank height = Slit length
Button up your leather tab, you are done!
You can use your leather organizer for keeping your measuring tape in tact too.
