Arm chair Caddy


Whew! I did not think I would be able to make this at all.
I got the tutorial from Hugs and Kisses ( on my side bar) and at the first glance I instantly said no way.
I am not much of a sewer and being very visual I do not like to read directions.
Also, from the pictures I saw of other arm chair caddies in blog land, I thought this thing is way too tiny to make.
After seeing so many being created, I decided to down load the PDF file and give it a look.
Well it did not look as hard as I thought it would be.
Granted that little cushion in the center is not the easiest thing in the world to sew but I did it and I hope the person who gets it really likes it. It still needs to be pressed and the pin cushion needs to be centered.
I think everyone needs one on their armchair. My husband could put his miniature remotes in it. LOL

That is pretty! I keep thinking I want to make one to hang off the edge of the bed, but I never dare because DH would stick the remote in there and I'd have to crawl over his sacked out form at night to change the channel.

How cute is that and I love the colors you used. I think your DH needs one also.

How can you say that you're not much of a sewer when look at all the lovely things you've made?!! Being able to see something and then work out how to make it is a real gift.
