Travel Sewing Tool Caddy

from Allyson.T
(9) Name: 'Sewing : Travel Sewing Tool Caddy
Travel Sewing Tool Caddy Sewing Caddy

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Operating your sewing machine
  • Rotary cutting fabric
  • Sewing on bias tape

Pattern Description:

This pattern will make a sweet little caddy to either hang from your ironing board or tuck under your sewing machine. It's great for taking your tools to sewing socials and have everything at your fingertips. I noticed my sewing tools would pile up on my half size ironing board, so I designed this product to organize and give me more space. I have had many compliments on this travel caddy and decided to make an official pattern available. This caddy has a pin cushion and slots for three pens, a rotary cutter, scissors, and a thread trash. Happy Sewing!

*Please Note: I don't cut my bias tape on the bias of the fabric to save on fabric. I have not had a problem
so far. If you prefer to cut your bias tape on the bias, please buy more of solid coordinate to accommodate at
least 90" of bias tape. You may also choose to buy single or double fold bias tape that is already made.
