Fiskars Remote Control Holder

Control clutter in your house!

Project Details

  • Level:intermediate
  • Time:2 hours

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Cut felt to desired size, keeping the size of your couch and the number of pockets you'd like to create in mind.
  • 2
    Trim fabric to fit the width of felt, and at least 3/4 the height of your tallest remote. Hem upper edge.
  • 3
    Lay fabric over felt, then sew outer edges & bottom edge to create large pocket. Be careful to not sew upper edge. (Tip – don’t worry about raw edges at this point.)
  • 4
    Create desired number of pockets by stitching over top of fabric. Using a zigzag stitch will ensure that pockets are strong.
  • 5
    Use pinking shears to trim all sides. This will reduce fraying, and eliminate the need to hem all edges.
  • 6
    Fold the top edge of felt and straight stitch to create a pocket for the wooden dowel. Slip dowel through. Trim excess dowel with small saw, if necessary.
  • 7
    Lay remote control holder over couch arm, tucking the dowel between the cushions to help secure.
