I can’t hear you

Well, if I’m wearing headphones I might not be able to hear you. Or I can practice selective hearing, right? 😉

In all seriousness, 2020 has been a challenging year but there have been some good things to come from it. Getting organized has been one of them.

I like to take my dog, Hondo, for morning walks. It’s good for both of us, and gives me time to listen to my favorite podcasts. I don’t have ear buds and use old fashioned ear phones. However, I store them in a wadded up mess in my purse and they are frequently tangled around themselves or some other item. So, I decided I needed a little case.

You will love this quick and easy craft and you can make the circle ANY SIZE YOU WANT! All I’m sayin’ is that there are some extension cords floating around my sewing room that are about to get situated using this same technique.

To start, find a cup, mug, roll of tape, etc. that has a 3 1/2” diameter. Trace the circle on your Kraftex then cut it out.

Don’t worry if you don’t have a perfect circle. We’ll trim the edges a little later.

Mark 1/2” on the inside of the circle.

Use a screwdriver or other sharp object to pierce the hole. Once you have pierced one side, fold the circle in half to mark the opposite side.

Attach a button stud where you pierced the hole.

Look closely. I folded the circle in half before placing the button stud on the screw so I could mark the other side. It was an extra layer of protection to make sure I’d marked correctly.

Cut a small slit where you marked the Kraftex. Gently fold your earphones and place in the center of the case. Insert the button stud through the slit you cut and enjoy!

Once you reach this point you can trim up any uneven circle edges. Just make sure the earphones aren’t in the case. 🙂
