I sewed the wires of my earbuds into this crazy purple and gold zipper to protect the wires from tangling and breakage.  I think it looks pretty neat, too!

I simply separated the wires all the way down to the plug, then sewed each wire along one side of the zipper.  Just fold the zipper tape in half towards the wrong side and use a running stitch to enclose the wire inside.

Keep them zipped in your bag, then unzip them when it's time to enjoy your tunes.

I would love to do some personal swaps.
I'm looking for handmade soaps, jewelry, and knit legwarmers/socks.
pm me if I can sew something for you!

I am interested in personal swaps!

Ya know this rocks! Great solution to a problem that plagues almost all of us. I wonder how many hours I have spent removing knots and tangles in such cords....

Ya just can't stop a crafty girl!

That is the best idea I've seen in ages, and it looks wicked cool!

Excellent idea, I may have to do that myself!

OMIGOSH this is the COOLEST idea I've seen in awhile! How awesome is that! Mine get tangled ALL THE TIME! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! THIS ROCKS!

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.
