Following my “rectangle” sewing projects and my design to have a tidy house. I am going to sew some cable tidies.cable tidy pin

Our life is dominated by digital products. We all have mobile phones, numerous cameras, tablets and so on. My drawer is full of different charging cables. Looks like this……cable tidy sew DIY-pre stage

  5. Close the opening.
  6. Add a form of fastening. I used KAM snap. Velcro should work too. Ta Da!

P.S  I just have had a thought. These cable tidies could also be used to tidy your Christmas decorations and lights; or as a coffee mug warmer. Additionally, if you make the rectangle bigger enough, it could be used as a coaster or a baby blanket.

What would you use these rectangles for? I love to hear your comments. I will post my sew organisation actions with you every Wednesday. Until then, happy sewing and tidying!
