There is nothing worse than trying to juggle your pin cushion, scissors, needles, buttons, and other sewing must-haves while trying to sew comfortably. This Portable Sewing Station is very helpful for those who love to hand stitch while on the couch, any time of the day.
It keeps other sewing tools, like scissors, in the pocket, and it helps avoid misplacing or losing small things like buttons. Making this sewing organizer is so quick and simple that you will have wished that you made it sooner!

I am always trying to be better organized and this pattern will help. The directions are easy to follow. I can make some for friends as well. You can always use something that has all your tools in one place. And it is has a pin cushion as well. Thank you for the pattern.

Who has not taken needles and buttons to sew by hand to a chair or sofa to do your sewing only to lose them. Well then you need to make a portable sewing station for yourself or family member or friend so it does not happen again. I love the quilted look and it is so easy to make. The sewed in pin cushion is a great idea too. This is a great way to use up scrap pieces of fabric too.

Leave politics out off my sewing. The VIEW "YUCK" - NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS. That's to much hate for me.

Oh my gosh, this is just totally adorable! I love that there is a pin cushion attached to it! I also like that it's stuffed just with polyfil because that is something I have on hand without running to the craft shop. I think this will come in handy for sure. Has anyone added any other features to this?

Our sewing group gets together every week at a different person's house. This organizer would come in handy when we are sitting around sewing and chatting. It is so portable and keeps my supplies close at hand. The fabrics used are really cute. I'd like to make several and give them to the members of the group for Christmas as a fun, practical gift.

My friend made me a similar organizer for over the sofa arm. She rounded the edges and used strips of coordinating colors of fabric and made it a quilted look on the outside pockets and a solid for the base and the pin cushion. Practical and looks cute too! Thanks for sharing!

Another fantastic storing idea, to make as gift for family and friends. I love projects that inspire organization. It can be made easily from serveral fabrics even a king size pillow case.

This is such a great idea for people who sew in all different areas of the house! It makes it so simple to take your supplies with you.

Love this practical pin cushion and sewing pocket to drape over an armchair or couch. Using a quilt-as-you-go technique with fabric scraps sewn onto a fleece fabric backing makes this fast and easy to do. The fleece backing keeps the sewing pocket from slipping. I would add a pocket for the TV remote as well!

These are great to make, use, and give.I have made similar ones years ago, and so I was excited to see a new and updated version here called the Portable Sewing Station. I love the prints that were used to make the one in the picture. It is safer too to use this to keep your pins and needles, rather than your chair's arm, which can end up inside you or an unsuspecting sitter! Thank you for sharing.

I just made my mom one of these and she uses it all the time! Great idea!
