Free Sewing Caddy & Thread Catcher Patterns
Sewing caddies are great for keeping tools organized and at your fingertips, they can rest underneath a sewing machine or sit within reach on an armrest. Here are a few different ideas for making one, some have been previously featured on Tipnut and moved here for better organization. I’ve also tucked in a few thread catchers at the bottom.
Sewing Caddy & Detachable Pincushion: Neat feature is a thick bobby pin on the back of the pincushion so it can be clipped on your shirt, pants waist, wherever works best!
Scrappy Armrest: This pincushion hangs over the armrest of your couch or armchair while you sew. The side pockets hold scissors, measuring tapes, thread or bobbins.
Bluebirds: Nicely done with some embroidery work (bluebirds pattern available for free).
Pouch-Style: Hanging pouch style with eyelets in place to hang from hooks under the sewing table or to screw in the top.
Hexagon: Made with fabric and shapemaker (or sturdy cardboard), features a hexagon base and scalloped sides.
Quilted: Make a little triangular shaped pouch with foldover flaps secured in place with buttons.
