I’ve made a padded headphone case to say Sew Long Summer and hello to back to school. This is my second post this week for the Sew Long Summer blog tour I’m hosting (read on to see more about the tour).
Headphones are a required school supply, so after the little guy broke two sets of headphones last year, I’m hoping a padded case will keep the newest set in one piece.
I didn’t want to reinvent the wheel, so I used the Taco Zipper Pouch tutorial and template (printed at 125%) that I wrote for On The Cutting Floor last year. I added a lining and batting to all my layers and cut my base and zipper strip to 3 3/4in width to account for the depth of the headphones. The little guy wanted “just one” handle, so I added that in too.
The little guy likes the Minions, but I think he couldn’t care less about the case. Oh well. My fingers are crossed that these headphones will survive the year.
Thanks for reading today. Now about the tour.
Sew Long Summer is all about getting those transitional wardrobe pieces ready; finishing up all those things we meant to make this summer; and well, basically whatever Sew Long Summer means to you.
The full tour includes these talented sewists, so I hope you’ll follow along and comment on their posts this week.
