Sewing Caddy- New Project

I just finished making two of these sewing caddies; they are similar with only a slight fabric change. I made a the pattern pieces, and then added handy holders and features I would like in an armchair caddy. Features include:

  • Felt needle book

  • Full width pin cushion, filled with sand to keep your needles sharp

  • 1 Large pocket

  • A second full width pocket separated into 3 smaller pockets to hold tools

  • A strip of elastic holders for small tools

  • A ruler ribbon for quick measurement checks

  • Felt bottom to avoid slipping

  • Ties for open-arm chair styles, like a rocker

I took pictures during the construction so if you'd like to try this, let me know and I'll post all in-progress pictures.
