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.

With Scissors Pocket: Includes a little pocket for scissors. Free pdf tutorial available to download.

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!

Weighted Pincushion Organizer: Because the pincushion is weighted with uncooked rice, it can perch just as easily on the edge of a table or the arm of a chair or sofa!

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.

Sewing Caddy: Features lots of pockets to hold sewing tools.

Bluebirds: Nicely done with some embroidery work (bluebirds pattern available for free).

For The Ironing Board: A handy item to hold scissors and sewing gadgets and lies flat across your ironing board.

Thread Catchers

Thread Holder Pattern: Pretty little cup that’s made with 8 strips of 2 contrasting fabrics (4 strips each).

Pouch-Style: Hanging pouch style with eyelets in place to hang from hooks under the sewing table or to screw in the top.

Weighted with Bag: Simple design featuring a weighted pincushion and small bag.

Hexagon: Made with fabric and shapemaker (or sturdy cardboard), features a hexagon base and scalloped sides.

With Pincushion: Features a weighted pincushion and lined bag.

Quilted: Make a little triangular shaped pouch with foldover flaps secured in place with buttons.

    The weighted pincushion with the bag hanging from two straps, makes a great TV remote holder. I make the staps a little longer so it fits over the arm of the favorite TV chair. My husband loves his. It holds more than one remote, which of course is necessary for all his tech toys!
