Connectors and Cords Pouch Set

I have been making a lot of pouches lately.  I love making different shapes and styles and trying new patterns for them.

Last week, I  actually made myself a set of pouches.  I had acquired a tangled pile , which included my I Phone usb cord,  ear buds,  camera usb cord , flash drives,  and a spare I Phone  power cord. It was time to get that  all organized .

Fabrics Selected:  various  Denyse Schmidt  DSQuilts   
My favorite is the gray and cream dots!  But I can't walk away from a turquoise zipper!!

Large Pouch:     I decided on the large size of the Open Wide Zippered Pouch,  by Anna of Noodlehead.  I used this tutorial for sizing the large pouch.

Ear buds:     I used the tutorial by   Erin, of Dog Under My Desk  for my Circle Zip  Earbud  Pouch.  These are so dog-gone cute!   I made a loop in the lining of my big zippered pouch, to attach the earbud pouch to.
Zip drives:   A perfect way to use my  "uh -oh,  this pouch is too small for my I Phone with its protective case" , that I made last week.   It was good  practice for putting a snap onto the flap.
I added a circle zip pouch for my earbuds.    Zip drives go in the snapped pouch

Pouches for cords:   Lastly, I  made 3 more smaller  pouches, with zippers , in my coordinated fabrics.  I like to mix and match.

All nestled into the  one big pouch

' Do these dots  make me look fat?.....'

I keep my pouch set right beside my laptop now.  It is easy to find the right cord, and to grab the whole pouch for when I travel!   I can't help but smile when I see these bright colors and some dots!!
I'm off to my sewing room!

  1. That white and grey is adorable! You could even put a bright zip on the neutral fabric. This is a brilliant idea, I'm going to make little pouches for all of my cords too I think (one day), you've inspired me! x

  2. What a fabulous set of pouches. I love the DS fabric and the vibrant turquoise and green!

  3. Love these. Love the fabrics - very modern. That little earphone round pouch is so handy - I'm gonna have to make me one of those.

  4. Forgot to say - you get a 'whoop, whoop' from me every time.

  5. Well look at you! These pouches are awesome! I love your fabric choices. They just make me happy!

  6. Great idea !! They look wonderful !

  7. Susie, these are just great! I love the fabric choices and the pop of a turquoise zipper. Attaching that adorable ear bud case was a brilliant idea. Can't wait to see the other pouches you come up with :)

  8. Such a great idea - loose cords and other bits and pieces look so messy and are tricky to keep track of. I love your choice of fabrics!

  9. What a great selection of pouches Susie! I love that you connected the earbud pouch via the zipper of the larger pouch - brilliant!!

  10. i have seen this cute zippered pouch all over . . maybe that's a sign i need to try it out! love your fabric selection!
