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.

Weighted Pincushion Organizer [3]: 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 [4]: This pincushion hangs over the armrest of your couch or armchair while you sew. The side pockets hold scissors, measuring tapes, thread or bobbins.
