Originally released as part of the Sew4Home Maker’s Club, this popular pattern is now available exclusively in our Etsy Shop. It’s a marvelous quilted mat that helps cushion the work surface for your machine and keeps your favorite notions and tools handy… and it does it all while looking cute as the proverbial button!
The mat finishes at 30” x 24”, which fits a wide range of machines and work surfaces. It has 13 pockets that range from 6” to 2” wide x 4” to 8” tall so you can tuck away all types of tools and notions. There’s even a detachable thread catcher.
We’ve included easy straight line quilting, pretty binding around the main mat, and piping around the pockets. You’ll also get instructions for using a number of specialty feet: from the Edge Guide foot to the Button Sewing foot. You can bring it all together into a fashionable, functional, use-it-now project!
As with our site-based projects, there are additional links within the pattern’s downloadable PDF instructions that take you to our in-depth, step-by-step tutorials for specialty techniques, like boxing corners and creating your own piping.
Sew4Home is known throughout the industry for professional and thorough instructions and gorgeous sample photography. We are determined to keep the cost of our Etsy Shop patterns affordable. This full Machine Mat & Notions Caddy pattern set is just $5.50, which is half to a quarter of the cost of most patterns we’ve researched from online and in-store resources. As a digital download, we understand you are providing the paper and ink and so have included three flexible printing alternatives.
There are three PDF files included in this $5.50 pattern purchase.
- The first file contains all the steps and all the full color instructional photos; it’s a great option for viewing on your computer or other digital device to fully understand the construction process.
- The second file is condensed to just the steps (no photos) to make printing more efficient.
- The third file has the pattern pieces.
Separating out the pattern pieces is especially helpful, allowing you to print only these and refer to your computer or other digital device for all instructions. All the files can be printed on either US Letter paper or A4 paper, using Adobe Acrobat Reader (a free program).
If you’re a regular Sew4Home visitor, you know we work very hard to keep virtually all of our content free to you as the end user. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean it’s free to produce. In fact, costs surrounding the creation of high quality, on-trend project tutorials, patterns, sample construction, photography, instructions, and website support continue to increase every year. With competition for sponsorship dollars fierce, we’re grateful to be able to investigate other monetary opportunities. It’s all about being able to continue to do what we love, in order to bring you what you love!
We will be releasing other patterns from the Sew4Home Maker’s Club into our Etsy Shop throughout the coming months as well as some S4H Classic projects and even some fun printable gifts, such as hang tags and mini posters. We hope you enjoy these new additions.
