DIY Hair Tool Pouch

8.5″x12.5″ of heat resistant fabric
8.5″x12.5″ fusible fleece
8.5″x 12.5″ cute fabric
ONE 1″xWOF (width of fabric) strip (I pictured 3, but ya don’t need that many:))
fuse the fleece to the wrong side of cute designer fabric & sandwich it in between that and the wrong side of the heat resistant fabric.
pin it A LOT. even if you don’t normally pin. DO IT.
make marks //I used pins// every inch.
sew straight lines all the way down the length of your fabric sandwich every inch.
do the same going the width.
trim your edges up.
add your binding using the 1″ strip.
heather bailey does a fantastic job of explaining how to add the binding //HERE//. Just remember, it doesn’t have to be perfect & using bias tape works WONDERFULLY!
fold it in half & topstitch along 2 of the three open edges.

Hope this was simple enough to understand!

  1. Thank you! Now I have a perfect use for my worn-out ironing board cover – am cutting the good parts out for this project!

  2. I made something similar. I used a strip of fabric approximately 36″ long by 6″ wide. I fused the heat resistant material to it. Then I sewed a piece of velcro on the pretty side about 4 1/2 inches from one end and the opposing piece of velcro at the opposite end on the heat resistant side about 1 1/2 inches from the edge. Use a serger to serge one of the short ends. Lay the project on the table with the heat resistant fabric facing you, bring the serged end up about 15 inches and pin in place, so the top layer is 15 inches and the bottom layer is 21 inches. Pretty side is out, heat resistant is in. Now use your serger to sew/serge the side seams and along the raw edge of the 21 inch long piece. You now have a bag with a flap. I used a colored thread in my serger to make it more decorative. You can adjust the size of material to fit your flat iron or curling iron.

  3. My daughter has made these for years. I keep mine in my comb/brush drawer & slide my culing iron in after I finish using it. Even when the iron is warm, I put it in.
    Absolutely love it.
