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. I decided to design a new sewing mat organizer pattern and project for you that would not only keep my tools in an easy place but also double as a scrap catcher. I also added a handy reference ruler and place to pin, sort, and store my sewing machine needles. 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).
