I whipped this up in an hour or two last night so it isn't particularly good quality - it's not lined or anything, I was mostly just entertaining myself and practising making a drawstring pouch, but it'll still be useful I think.

Sorry in advance for the terrible photos, the lighting in my room is really bad.

Here's how my hair straighteners used to live before:

And after:

It's just a simple drawstring pouch really.
Drawstring tied up:

Drawstring undone:

And a close up of the Velcro strap I put on the side to hold those pesky wires a bit neater:

So yeah, as I said, it's not much, but I felt like making something and my straighteners were just crying out for a nice bag to be kept in Smiley

What a great functional bag!  I love the strap you did for the cord!  (I have made 2 of these, using potholders, but couldn't figure out what to do with the cord aspect! Thanks for the great idea, I need one more and my mother needs one!)

Enjoy using it, you did a great job with the drawstring!
Thanks for sharing!

What a great idea.  And the cord thingy.....good job.  I might be making a few of these...one for me, and then a a couple for my nieces.  Thanks.

Love it! Your cord idea is brilliant! What are the finished dimensions? And is the fabric heatproof, or do you have to let the iron cool before you pack it away?

Ooh. It sounds like I'm interrogating you :s

I recently found heat-resistant fabric at JoAnn's.  (Hancocks has it too.)  They have quilted and plain, non-quilted types.  The users whom I made mine for put their irons in them while hot, so they don't forget the irons while traveling.

I love this design! Thanks!
