Customize it to Fit Your Chair and Tools!
This marvelous organizer has been carefully designed to hold just about everything you’ll need to work in your favorite armchair. It can be adjusted to fit over the arm of your chair and customized to suit your needs.
The clever design includes a box for odds and ends, pincushion and thread catcher. These are all detachable and can be moved to the sewing room or elsewhere as needed. Pockets on both sides can be customized to fit specific tools or left large to hold just about anything.
A piece of sheet metal is sewn into the top of the organizer and magnets hold the interchangeable items in place. That also means a magnetic pin bowl will stay in place, as well.
Instructions are provided for cutting your own sheet metal and magnet shapes. Or purchase the hardware kit and just focus on the sewing.
Choose fabrics in colors that you enjoy and have fun putting your organizer together. Once it’s done you’ll wonder how you ever got along without it!
The “Mini Maker Station”, designed by Nicole Young from Lillyella, includes instructions for two sizes – 7” wide or 9” wide by 17” long. The length can also be adjusted to fit your chair.
Nicole hosted a sew-a-long that provides tips and tutorials for making the organizer. You can access them all at the link below. Start with the article at the bottom and move your way up as you go along.
You may want to read them all before you start, as she provides ideas for customizing the organizer in various places.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources.
