Travel Cable Cozy

Whenever I go anywhere I always struggle with how to pack all my electronic cables and things. In this modern age, whenever we travel we have to bring all of our electronic things. With that comes all of the chargers and other various cables that go with them. Then if you are going abroad, then you also have to worry about how to pack all your converters and plug adapters too!

Well, I stumbled across this DIY on Pinterest for a cute little pouch to store and organize all of that extra electronic junk and I decided to give it a go!

So this particular DIY does involve quite a bit of sewing and my sewing knowledge is very limited, like I honestly have no clue what I am doing. My knowledge is limited to the few times my mom has helped me on a few random projects in the past. But this time, I did this 100% on my own and I somehow managed and ended up with this super cute cable organizer!


I did do a few things differently with my travel case. In the tutorial they used a belt hook as a clasp for their case. To be more cost effective, I decided to sew on a button and some ribbon that I had lying around the house.


This pouch is great because the elastic bits are great to organize all of your cords and things and then there is a pouch at the bottom that you can throw plugs, converters, and adapters into! The pouch is detachable too, so you can throw it into your purse and bring it with you if needed!


I am really happy with the way it turned out! It is nowhere near perfect, but considering I have no clue what I am doing when it comes to sewing, it looks pretty good!

I realize this post does not make it look like I have no clue how to sew, but I promise you I don't know what I am doing! I don't even know how to thread the sewing machine!

Now that I've actually made something on my own, I am all of a sudden inspired to make other things! Scallop skirt might be next on my list, but clothing might be a little too advanced for my skill level or lack thereof.

Thanks for reading!!
