One of the aspects I enjoy most about
sewing is the ability to create objects that are both beautiful and
functional. Since I seem to endlessly
acquire all of those sewing notions that promise to make my life easier, I also
appear to be in constant need of organizing solutions to store them all!
When I created the projects for my new book Stitched Sewing Organizers, I used this functional need as a starting point to
create various useful items that will come in handy, both in your sewing space
and also when stitching on the go. All
the projects were designed to work together—the smaller projects are sized to
fit into the larger ones, and there are projects for all skill levels. Many of the projects will also work for a
variety of other needs such as knitting, travel, kids' toys, and more.
You will find plenty of tips and tricks for
installing zippers, sewing with vinyl, using the correct interfacing to give
your projects the required structure, and more.
One of my favorite projects from the book
is the Fold-Up Sewing Folio. This super
useful pouch opens up to reveal plenty of pockets, a pincushion, and a needle
book. Lots of room for keeping all your
sewing essentials in one place and perfect
to use for English paper piecing, appliqué, binding, or embroidery. The pouch folds up neatly and securely with a
stylish tab closure.
With summer fast approaching, you will find
many of the finished projects handy to throw in your bag or suitcase to take
with you—whether you are planning a visit to the pool or going on a road
Whatever you do, happy sewing!
