This DIY charging station is perfect for charging your phone neatly but also for storing and organizing cords. You could also use it to store small items like earbuds, batteries, or chargers. It’s a great way to keep your workspace and home tidy and organized.
What is the best way to customize my quilted phone charger holder?
You can customize your DIY charging station with fabric and bias tape/bias binding in different colors, patterns, and textures.
You can also play around with the quilting pattern, trying different techniques such as free motion quilting.
Decorative trims or buttons can be added if you want some extra flair. Get creative and show off your unique style! Have fun and make it your own!
How do I adjust the pattern to fit my phone?
You can easily make the template larger or smaller! Print the pattern out and measure it against your phone. If you need to make it smaller, place the phone on the pattern and trace around it, then add enough allowance for the bias tape and a little wiggle room for the phone and the charging cable.
If you need to make the pattern larger, grab a seam gauge and add as much as needed all around the pattern. For example, if you need to add 1/4 inch all around, measure and mark the pattern at ¼-inch intervals and connect the marks with a pencil or marker.
What materials do I need to make a quilted phone charger holder?
A handful of basic materials are needed for this project:
- Phone charger holder pattern

- Batting or fusible fleece
- Rotary cutter
- Cutting mat (optional)
- Quilting clips
- Fabric marker
- Basting spray
- Matching thread
- Sewing machine

- Interfacing – if you want to make your holder extra sturdy.
With these easy-to-find materials you’ll have everything you need to make a stylish and functional DIY charging station for your phone! Let’s get started with the tutorial!
How to quilt this DIY charging station?
Cut the fabrics
- Start by cutting the pattern out. First cut out the entire template.
- Place the holder fabrics right sides together and top them with a piece of batting. Pin together to keep them from moving. Alternatively, you can use a basting spray to keep the layers together.
- Transfer the pattern onto fabrics using the fabric pen and cut out.
- Place the pocket fabrics wrong sides together. Insert a piece of batting between the 2 layers of fabric and pin or clip or use basting spray.
- Cut out the pocket piece from the pattern and place it over the pocket fabrics. Trace onto fabrics and cut out.
Make the main holder
- Cut out the rectangle from the template then place the template again over the batting side. Trace the rectangle onto fabrics using the fabric marker.
- Sew around the rectangle. Cut out the inside of the rectangle and clip the corners.
- Push the batting and one layer of fabric inside the rectangle to completely turn them until they meet the other layer of fabric so that the batting is sandwiched between the fabrics and the fabrics are right sides out.
- Smooth out the seam inside the rectangle, press well and topstitch the small rectangle.
- Quilt the pouch with your favorite quilting method. I decided to do some simple parallel stitches, 1″ apart.
Make the pocket piece
- Quilt the pocket panel with your favorite quilting technique. I did 1″ squares to add a bit of a contrast against the back panel.
- Add some lace trim at the top edge of the pocket panel.
- Cover the top of the pocket in double fold bias tape. I used 1/2″ for this project.
Assemble the pieces
- Place the pocket piece over the main piece and clip. Run a couple of lines of basting stitches to keep the panels together.
- Attach double fold bias all around the raw edges of the holder and you’re done!
- Plug your charging cord in the socket, hang your cute holder and place the phone inside. Now go make some more holders for the entire family.
