Sewing Supply Caddy


I designed and made this sewing caddy myself. I wanted something to carry supplies with me when I went to my applique and other quilting/knitting groups. I added an exterior pocket with an applique.


This is how it looks all opened up. I made 8 zippered pockets that I designed like those pencil pockets for notebooks. I used a mesh fabric instead of using plastic, so you can still see inside. I added beaded zipper pulls that I made too. The fabric pockets weren't as sturdy as those plastic pencil poickets though, so I sewed some snaps onto the pockets and snap them to hold them in place while it's being carried upright. I  also wanted to use fabric so that it would last, rather than using plastic gallon or quart size Ziplock bags, that would eventually get holes in them and need to be replaced.
