Sewing Mat Organizer Pattern -taking the guess work out of sewing

Sewing Mat Organizer Pattern

“Where is my…….?” That must be one question I ask myself at least 5 times a day.  I lose just about everything (much to the chagrin of my family..) and I have to admit that I am a messy worker.  I waste a lot of time looking for things I need; bobbins, needles, screwdrivers, tape measure, scissors, clips –you name it.  The tools are not really lost since they are certainly just somewhere, usually under something.  For everyone's sanity, I felt it was about time I change the way I do things.

I got the idea for a sewing mat organizer one morning after spending four hours the prior night looking for a regular presser foot for my sewing machine, only to find it at the bottom of my serger scrap catcher.  I found it mixed up with a collection of sewing machine needles, pins, and almost empty bobbins.

This Sewing Mat Organizer has one needle organizer, one small ruler (in centimeters and in inches), and two pockets (one will double as scrap catcher and the other can hold your tools).


  • 3/4 yards of quilted cotton fabric
  • 1/2″ yard of clear vinyl
  • Thread to match the fabric
  • Bias Tape

    I could have sworn that I wrote the comment. It sounds so much like me. I am forever looking for things I have misplaced.

    I intend to give the Sewing Organizer a try!

    I made one of these a few years ago. It is so handy to have everything within reach when sitting at your machine.

    The part that goes under the sewing machine is made of 3 layers of cotton upholstery fabric so you can iron on it.

    I also added ties to it so I could wear it like an apron when standing at my ironing board.
