What materials did you use? This is a copyrighted design. I made my own pattern. I used available fabrics, sand as filler for the pin portion, ruler print ribbon, decorative elastic for notion holder. I also used felt for the needle book.

What are you most proud of? This caddy has all the requirements I've found I needed during my 60 years of sewing. Like most seamstresses I want everything close at hand. It's also terrific for traveling; just fold it over and put in a shoebox or other container.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use your imagination ! Think of other ways to use it (like a remote holder, pen and pencil holder) and make the caddy to suit your purposes. It can be a sewing caddy plus so much more. I like keeping my current pattern handy (in the large pocket) for all the handwork you end up doing when you leave your sewing machine. I have photographs of the caddy in progress and will be adding them to my blog. http://sews4you-peggyspretties.blogspot.com/2011/02/sewing-caddy-new-project.html

I like your version of this with all the added places for scissors etc.I have made these before,but never thought of putting those places to hold the scissors,seam ripper,ruler etc. I need to make myself a new one to use at my stitch chair as I do a lot of cross stitch these days mostly every night while listening to the tv,and I'm always dropping my floss bobbins down into my chair.I corral my scissors and needles there with heavy duty magnets. Thanks for sharing. I've been sewing over 55 years ,so I'm not far behind you. Kathi
