How to Make a Flat IroN CASE
How to make a flat iron case. Storing or traveling with hair appliances is always difficult. They are bulky and take up a lot of room. The cords are especially an issue so I thought I would create this flat iron case that you can use for storage and travel. This is a simple sewing project that can be made using basic sewing skills. I used two different quilting cottons and some ironing board fabric to create this project. I chose a fun orange floral but you can choose any fabric pattern you like for your flat iron case. Quilting cotton is probably the best fabric for this project. You could also use this to store a curling iron as well.
I used fabrics from my stash that I obtained at JOANN Fabric & Craft Stores but you could always head to Fabric.com or Hobby Lobby to get exactly what you need for your flat iron case.

What you will Need: How to make a flat iron case
- 1/2 yd exterior fabric and lining fabric
- 1/4 yd ironing board fabric
- Kam Snap kit
Step 1: Cut Your Fabrics
Step 2: Cut Your Fabrics
Layer the smaller rectangles so that they are the ironing board fabric on the bottom then the lining wrong sides together and the outer fabric right sides together with the lining fabric. Using a 1/4″ seam allowance stitch along the top. Fold the main fabric back so that the ironing board fabric is in the center. Top stitch along the top edge using a 1/8″ seam allowance.
Step 3: Stack Your Fabrics
Place your long ironing board fabric right sides up on your work surface. Lay one long outer fabric wrong side down on the ironing board fabric. Place the shorter fabrics onto the outer fabric lining up the bottoms and sides. Place the second outer fabric right sides down onto the stack and clip. I used wonder clips due to the bulk of the fabrics. I really recommend them for this application. If you do not have wonder clips you can get them in my Amazon shop here. You can use pins but use them with care again because of the bulk.
Step 4: Sew Your flat iron case Fabrics
Sew all layers together leaving an opening on the side or turning. Turn the fabrics right sides out and sew the opening closed using ladder stitch. If you are unfamiliar with ladder stitch take a look at this video.
Step 5: Add the kam snaps
Add the Kam snaps. If you don’t have Kam Snaps you can purchase the kit through my Amazon shop here. Add one half of the snap on the flap and the other on the main part of the case. If you are unfamiliar with how to install Kam Snaps take a look at this video or follow the manufacturers instructions. You could also use Velcro for this but I like the Kam snaps.
