Power Cord Wrap tutorial
Supplies for 3 cord wraps:
- 1- 24” package of ½”-3/4” sew-in Hook & Loop fastener (Velcro) (I found mine at Wal-Mart for $0.84.)
- 9” grosgrain ribbon, twill tape or fabric (should be hemmed) of equal width to the Hook & Loop fastener
- Coordinating Thread
- Sewing Machine with sturdy needle
- Scissors (able to cut the Hook & Loop fastener)
- Matches or lighter (to seal the ends of the ribbon)
Cut the soft side of the Hook & Loop fastener into 3- 7-8” strips
Cut the Rough side of the Hook & Loop fastener into 3- 1.5” strips (there will be a long piece left over that we will not use.)
Cut the ribbon into 3- 3” strips. With a match or lighter, heat-seal the ends to prevent fraying.
Fold the ribbon in half to make a 1.5” piece. Stitch at 1/8 inch around the perimeter, backstitching at start and finish. Repeat with the other 2 ribbons.
Take one piece of soft side Hook & Loop fastener and with the back facing you, line up the ribbon with the raw edges (heat sealed ends)1/4” overlapping the top of the Hook & Loop fastener, and the fold extending past the end of the Hook & Loop fastener, by 1.25”. Baste or glue stick in place if desired.
Put the rough side of the Hook & Loop fastener on the back of the soft side over the ribbon, with the ends of the Hook & Loop fastener lined up.
Stitch at 1/8 inch around the perimeter, backstitching at start and finish of rough side of Hook & Loop fastener. Trim threads.
*If something doesn't make sense, please let me know. I intend to add a few more process photos soon. I need to get some more Hook & Loop first.
