Sewing Craft: DIY Flat Iron Travel Pouch

DIY Flat Iron travel PouchI’ve been traveling a lot. Not to any place exciting, though. But when I am on the go, I often have to bring clothes to get dirty in and clothes to dress up in.

I’m usually in a hurry, so wrapped up my hot flat iron and throwing it in my bag isn’t an option. I needed something safer. Which is why I needed some sort of travel pouch. Of course, I wasn’t about to buy one if I could make one that’s cheaper.

  1. I love this! So smart to turn a hot pad into a straightener bag. And you would have so many pattern options (yours is super cute).

    I’ll be posting my sewing craft after work today so stay tuned!
