Cord Keepers

I was always losing or breaking the rubber bands or elastic scraps that I kept around my tape measure and sewing machine cords, so when I saw some leather cord keepers on Etsy, I was inspired to make my own. I’ve gone a little crazy making these. Every time I notice another cord that needs to be tamed, I’ll make another one, plus a few extra.

The cord keepers are fast and easy to make. Just cut a strip of leather and attach a snap at each end. I used KAM Snaps, since I have a lot of them, but metal hammer-on snaps would work just as well.
