Arm Chair Sewing Caddy

I have been working on a hand appliqued quilted wall hanging and thought I needed a little sewing caddy to tote my stuff and to work more conveniently at my chair.

 I am sure ya'll are sick of this fabric combination but I LOVE it.  I am almost out of it so you won't see it much more! *grin*  It has a cute little garbage can.  I still need to sew the button on to hold my garbage can.

I found some tutorials on the internet, but none of them were what I was looking for, so I improvised.  I will post some sewing caddy tutorial links at the end of this post.

It has some cute little pockets for scissors, needles, pencils, etc.  Ruffles make everything cuter!  It has a larger pocket on the other side to hold my applique pieces.

It probably has too many pockets, but I figured I would fill them eventually.

I made a little needle book using the sleeve cuff of a felted wool sweater. 

These little buttons & rubber bands are the perfect thread holders!

I made a cute little pin cushion.  

You just fold it up and go or open it up and sew!

Here are a few other blogs tutorials so you can make your own:
