Today's project is an Armchair Sewing Caddy...made from a placemat you have tucked in a drawer not being used.
Start with any placemat.
This one happens to be quilted, but not necessary.
Fold over the short ends to create little pockets.
I folded the ends over about 3 inches.
Just sew on the original stitches from the placemat edge.
All 4 sides sewn
Now decide how many individual pockets you would like.
I sewed 2 lines on each side to make 3 pockets.
All Done!! Just drape over the arm of a chair, couch or your favorite sewing spot.
Drapes over the arm with pockets on both sides.
Pockets can hold thread, scissors, rulers
Cell phone, eye glasses, television clicker etc.
You can use the top of the placemat for a pincushion or...
Make a little one to add to the top. This is one I made a long time ago from a bottle cap. Click HERE for that tutorial.
Use 2 part of Velcro to attached it to the sewing caddy.
Placemat Sewing Caddy...easy peasy, because you are starting with something that's already finished. You're just adding a few straight line stitches to change it up.
Have fun designing your own sewing caddy to suit your needs!!
Happy Thrifty Thursday,
