Pattern: By Annie Catch All Caddy
Fabric: quilting cotton from Joann Fabrics
Stabilizer: Bosal Sew In Foam Stabilizer
I used the Catch All Caddy Pattern that comes with the Craftsy Class Sew Sturdy: Home Organizers
You can buy the pattern, but I think you get more value with the Craftsy class. In addition to the Catch All Caddy pattern, you also get the Nesting Baskets pattern and step by step instructions in how to sew both projects.
The Caddy is a great organizing option for many different things: baby changing supplies, painter tools, toys, makeup trays, etc. and the cool thing about sewing it is that you can match your fabric to its use.
Since I’m planning to use my caddy to organize sewing supplies, I used sewing theme fabrics.
It was straight forward to sew, my biggest challenge was the bias binding at the end because there are many layers and it was too thick for my machine to handle.
I’m happy in how it turned out and I would sew it again. It is kind of addictive.
At my local store I found D rings instead of the 1 1/2″ rectangle rings that Annie recommends but they worked well.
A very important piece for this caddy organizer is the stabilizer. The caddy has to stands on its own and should be strudy enough to hold your supplies and tools. The main fabric and the lining fabric are quilted using the stabilizer and it is also used in the padded handles.
Annie recommends her ByAnnie’s Soft and Stable Fabric for the stabilizer which is a good option, but I used a similar product – Basal Sew In Foam Stabilizer that I had on my stash. Another option is Pellon Flex-Foam Stabilizer Board FF-77. I’m very pleased with the stabilizer that I used and I’m very proud of my caddy.
