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.
