Couch Remote Caddy

I always had problem with finding the remote when I need it so I thought of solving it by making a remote caddy which can be accessed right away when i need to use it & I made it with some remnants that I had lying around.

Since I had a brown or chocolate colored couch I chose somewhat a same colored fabric to make it.

I used 2 different colored  & sized fabrics. The one that goes in the bottom was slightly longer in length and was 18″ by 34″ & the other one was 10″ by 22″ & was slightly wider than the other one.

You will also need a dowel of 1/2″ by 12″ size & a matching colored thread.

I hemmed all the edges using a zigzag stitch, i didn’t hem the longer fabric as it was a fleece fabric which won’t have fray edges but did stitch the edges without hemming it to give both fabrics a similar look, but if you have a fabric that is not a fleece then hem all the four edges. If you are using a fabric that need to be hemmed then it needs to have 2 inches extra length & width for hemming than i have mentioned above.

Get the longer fabric & fold on the width 2 1/2″ inward & sew on the edge, it should have enough size to get the dowel through.

Now sew the small one right on to the other end of the longer one.

Then sew the sides folding it underneath. Ignore the velcro, I will explain it as we go! 🙂

Now sew on top of the top fabric all the way down on 2 different places if you need three pockets but if you need more than 3 pockets adjust & sew one more time.DSCF6787

Then push the dowel in through the hole made earlier.

Now lay on the couch & adjust the size according to however low or high you would like it to stay to reach for the remote!

Then tuck the dowel into the side of the cushion and the armrest where you sit.

After making necessary adjustments get the other end that is hanging down & velcro it using a glue gun on each side.

Once it’s been glued down, now is the time to get the remotes in & change the channels without running around to find them!
