Book Description

"Stitched Sewing Organizers is the book I have been waiting years for." The Sewing Directory

Celebrate and use your sewing skills with well-known and popular designer Aneela Hoey's 15 stylish yet functional patterns for a wide variety of sewing organisers. Designed to work together, many of the smaller projects fit into larger ones and can be made into a coordinating set. Showcase trendy fat quarters and half-yards or use up odds and ends of your favourite fabric as you make cute containers for yourself, to give to your friends, or to bring to swaps. Even the more challenging patterns can be sewn in less than a day - perfect for when you need a break from those more time-consuming projects.

The Sewing Directory

Stitched Sewing Organizers is the book I have been waiting years for!  With so many projects on the go, sewing supplies to store etc Im always looking for clever patterns to make to get myself organised. I have in fact made a couple of the author, Aneela Hoeys, patterns before so when she bought out a whole book of them I couldnt wait to get my hands on it.

The book is published by Stash Books in America and imported into the UK by Search Press which does make it a little more expensive than the books from British publishers. However, when you realise that Aneelas patterns cost £7 each to buy, and you get 15 in the book it makes great value for money. Below are the projects you will find in the book.

The 15 patterns are split into the following categories in the book: Small Things, Cases and Folios, Pouches and Boxes and Totes. They range from projects you can make in an hour or so to those that take most the day. I suspect most stitchers will find several they want to make. Theres also a tools and basic techniques section at the start of the book to give you the knowledge you need to make the projects.

Although theres a few generic projects like a tomato pincushion, large zippy pouch and drawstring bag most have Aneelas unique stamp on them. I particularly like the Fold Up Sewing Folio, a great travel sewing kit, The Book and Tool Folio for keeping book, patterns and the tools you need to make the projects together in one place and The See It All Pouch, a transparent project bag. Most the projects are also fat quarter friendly so will make great stash busters. Several use clear vinyl which you can also buy from Search Press here.

Ive made four of the See All Pouches already and plan to make several more, they make ideal extras for Instagram swaps or gifts for stitchy friends. They are quick and easy to make and fat quarter friendly. The only change Id suggest to the pattern in the book is to use a 12 inch zip, which you could cut down if needed. I found 10 inch zips a little too small and ended up cutting the pouch down on my first one, and then adding zip tabs to extend the zip on my second pouch (the purple one above). The third and fourth pouches I used 12 inch zips and it worked out great.

Im looking forward to making some of the other projects in the book, next on my list are the fabric boxes.
