Sew Many Projects Caddy with Bonus Applique Embroidery

To Purchase my newest pattern, SEW MANY PROJECTS CADDY, click HERE to go to my Etsy Store.

 

As with most sewers, I am always working on multiple projects at the same time.  I get bored with one and then I begin a new one.  I try to be organized by putting everything I need for the first project in a box or bag to keep it all together but then when I want to go back to that project, I normally can’t find it without looking through all the boxes or bags I have loaded with other projects.  One day after getting frustrated searching for a particular project for what seemed like hours, I thought, if I could only see what’s in these things it would make my life easier and I wouldn’t waste so much precious time searching for what I’m looking for.  Then it hit me, PET SCREEN!  You can see through pet screen!   And so it began, the Sew Many Projects Caddy was born. 

My favorite part of the Sewing Caddy is that it has two outer zippered pockets to hold thread, scissors and sewing notions (or whatever else the project requires).  Then behind each zippered pocket is an additional pocket that is perfect to hold patterns and notes while storing the fabric or heavier materials in the main part of the bag.  Using the pet screen allows you to see exactly what project you have in the caddy and all its compartments,  while keeping  your things organized so when you’re ready to work on your project, everything you need is right there and you can identify it easily.  No more wasting time by searching through all the boxes for the project you were working on a month ago!

Don’t let the zippers scare you away from making this adorable caddy!  I understand that most of us are visual learners and I cater to that by including lots of pictures (over 25 in this pattern) to guide you step by step in making your own Sew Many Projects Caddy.  My method of installing zippers (with zipper tabs to make it look professional ) is super simple and is explained in detail with pictures to help you conquer this fear! 

In addition to the 12 page eBook, I have included my much loved Sewnopsis to save you time and money on printing.  What is a Sewnopsis?  It is a single page reference guide that has the supply list, cutting instructions and the most important steps to the pattern on ONE SHEET.  It’s handy to keep by your sewing machine to refer to when making your Caddy.   It is also a lifesaver to have with you when you go to the store to get your supplies so you don’t forget a thing and have to make the dreaded trip back to the store.

This pattern DOES INCLUDE BONUS embroidery designs.  The Sew Many Projects circle applique’ frame is included with each letter of the alphabet and then a blank applique’ frame in case you want to incorporate your own lettering.  The embroidery design fits the 4″x4″ hoop and is available in JEF, PES, HUS and EXP formats.  

 

And….Why Knot?

I have been hard at work on my latest tote bag pattern, Why Knot?

This adorable bag measures  16 ½” wide x 12 ½” tall, 6” deep, making it the perfect size to carry all your goodies.  My construction technique makes it sturdy (no slouchy bags for me) and stylish with its unique shape.

I have taken away the scare of zippers by not including any on this pattern.  But we still need the pocket in our bag, right?  Well, I added a pleated pocket to the inside instead.

Plus, two additional pleated pockets on the outside for easy access storage to hold your cell phone and keys.  

Did you also notice the expandable sides with the magnetic snaps?

As always, my pattern includes step by step instructions with lots of pictures to guide you in making your own Why Knot Tote Bag.  I have also included my Sewnopsis with this pattern that will serve as your cheat sheet and save you lots of time by not having to run to and from the computer to see what step is next.  I have been told by customers that this is one of their favorite part of my patterns.  

If you would like to purchase my Why Knot? Tote Bag, please click HERE to visit my Etsy store.  

For the first 10 customers, this pattern will be $5.00.  After those ten have sold, the pattern will return to its normal price of $8.00.
