D.I.Y HEADPHONE CASE.
Cost: I used fat quarter squares from Walmart for this DIY. I LOVE fat quarter squares. They are fun, affordable and great for small beginner projects. The fat quarter squares that I used were $6.
I used two different fabrics (one for the outside and one for the lining), interfacing, and a zipper.
I traced around a glass using a fabric pencil to help me get my circle shape. I cut out three whole circles, 6 half circles and a square piece for the “tab” ( I ended up changing the fabric at the end). I didn’t measure anything I just eyed it (this is supposed to be fun right? *nervous laugh).
I cut the fabrics together with a rotary cutter and to make sure the interfacing was the same size as the fabric. I pinned down the fabric and cut around it. I folded the fabric in half and traced around it to get my half circles.
This is how I layered the fabric: Half circle right side up (lining fabric), zipper right side up, outer fabric wrong side up and then interfacing then I sewed where the pins are using 1/4 in seam allowance. I repeated this on the other side of the zipper.
Then I unfolded both sides and did a straight stitch down the inside (the pink stitching in the right picture). Then I pressed both sides to make it neater and smoother. Watch a YouTube video if you need to learn how to sew a zipper, I did!
This is what I was referring to when I said I picked a different fabric in the end. I cut out a square and folded it, pressed it and sewed down each ends.
Attaching the tab: I folded the tab in half and sewed it down. I also shortened the zipper before attaching the tab.
The back of the case: The left picture is how I put the fabric together and the right is after I attached it to the other side and sewed around the edge. I cut off the extra fabric to reduce bulkiness….
…..Turn right sides out and DONE! I can’t wait to put this to good use. My headphones get so tangled and stuck on things in my purse so sure this will help!! The tab is there just in case I want to add a key ring and attach it to my keys.
As always thanks for stopping by!!!
