This is really similar to the $1 Flat Iron Case tutorial I posted last week If you missed that, check it out. The differences include $.50 more and 45 minutes less of construction time.
Here’s the How:
1. An oval-shaped pot holder. I got mine in a two pack at Wal-Mart for $3.
2. Sewing machine, coordinating thread and scissors
|Sorry this picture is so terrible…|
1. Take your pot holder and fold it in half.
2. Sew the two sides together. Leave one end open. You will want to check with your specific curling iron to see where the best place to stop sewing will be. That’s it.
Seriously, this took me like ten minutes. And that was because I ran out of bobbin thread half way through the first time and then broke my needle the second time. The doubled pot holder is pretty thick, so go slow and take your time. It’ll keep your needle from breaking…..
Because the pot holder is an oval shape, it leaves the little lever thingy exposed while still covering the entire iron part. I fit mine to my big combo iron (that I only use the curling iron part of…), but my smaller one fit in there ok too. Once again, if you wrap up the cord, it will also fit inside the case. Everything will be confined in your suitcases.
