No matter what I do, my chalk and my seam ripper are always missing. Within 12 seconds of putting one down, it somehow manages to get itself lost or stolen by my cats. To remedy this chronic sewing tool loss, I made a super cute organizer; and it was so easy, I might cover a wall with them!
Things you’ll need:
First, fold the denim in half to form the pocket. Or, if you’re worried about your denim being too thick, simply hem what will become the top of the pocket, instead of doubling up your fabric.
Place your pocket fabric where you’d like it to lie on top of the cotton. Add your tools and embroidery hoop, and place a pin between each tool. Trim the denim about 2″ from the hoop. From here, sew lines straight down from where you pinned between your tools, like the picture below.
Add your ribbon, and stretch your fabric across the embroidery hoop. Be sure to make sure to pull the fabric taut and tighten the hoop as much as possible to ensure that you don’t lose any tools. To finish, you can either trim the excess fabric, or pin it behind the hoop. Attach a loop of ribbon to the top to hang it somewhere adorable!
