I’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 take my flat iron a lot too because I have a habit of sleeping with my hair in a bun. I know, I have bad hair habits. Back to the travel…
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.
Want one? Keep reading.
Materials needed for a DIY Flat Iron Pouch
- Hot pad
Try to get a hot pad with a loop at the top for hanging. You’ll be able to pull the cord through to hold it in place.
Fold the flat iron in half.
Sew up the bottom and side. Leave the top open.
When you’re finished slide your flat iron through the top pocket.
You can use the loop to hold the the cord in place.
Hopefully this quick sewing tutorial can save you some money and make traveling with with your hair accessory a bit easier.

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!
Thanks a ton! It’s super cheap too if you buy one from the dollar store. Looking forward to your craft!!
