Armchair Caddy & Organizer Patterns - 18 free designs!
So, an armchair caddy can help keep your various odds and ends, such as t.v.
remote controls, magazines, books, eyeglasses, etc. organized and close at hand.
But if you're a sewer who likes to do handwork in front of the t.v. (or simply in a
favorite chair), many of these projects are specifically designed to hold sewing
notions and tools. So if you know someone who likes to sew, an armchair sewing
caddy can make a great and thoughtful gift.
And if you think your organizer will be subjected to lots of stress (for instance, from
items being constantly placed into and out of its pockets), be sure to sew it from a
sturdy fabric. Or, you can choose a lighter weight fabric and make it more durable by
backing it with a layer of fusible interfacing. And if you choose one of the quilted
caddy designs, the multiple layers of fabric will provide built-in sturdiness. You can
also make the pockets of your organizer extra sturdy by sewing them onto your
caddy with double lines of stitching instead of just single rows. This would be
especially important if your caddy will be holding heavier items.
And because most of these projects require cutting and sewing just a few simple
rectangles together, most would likely make an appropriate project for a beginner.
But because you'll likely be sewing through several thick layers fabric, just remember
to start your project with a new, sharp needle and to use a thicker needle in your
sewing machine, which should be able sew through all of those layers without
