We sewists always need more organisation ideas for our Sewing Space! Somehow, you can never have quite enough jars or baskets to hold all the things you need. What’s even better, is that have brought you our favourite Free sewing patterns for Organising Your Sewing Space.

Whether you have a small space or a large room to sew in, you will find something here which will help to keep it all nice and tidy!

Oslo Craft Bag – Sew Sweetness

Oslo Craft Bag from Sew Sweetness

We have made the Oslo Craft Bag from Sew Sweetness and we can confirm that it is a brilliant free pattern! It is so roomy, perfect for knitting, embroidery, or sewing projects. It has so many pockets, it could even be haberdashery storage for those with limited sewing space at home. You can find lots of other free patterns from Sew Sweetness.

Sewing Machine Mat – from Polka Dot Chair

Again we have made something similar to this in the past and it it so handy for any sewer. It has lots of pockets for storage of scissors & seam rippers and even has a little thread catcher attached. These kind of sewing mats can be carefully folded away after use, so again they are really useful if space is limited.

DIY Hanging Organizer – from Sew Can She

These DIY Hanging Organisers are handy for the sewing room or any other room in the house! We love how simple they are to make. These would also be lovely as a gift. Another great organisation ideas for your sewing space.

Thread Catcher – Sewing With Scraps

Thread Catcher from Sewing With Scraps

For keeping tidy, thread catchers are essential in any sewing space. You always have little bits of fabric & thread that need to be tidied away. we think this would be very useful if you had a serger with no thread basket attached. Just sit it beside the machine and scoop all those fabric cuttings into it.

Fabric Baskets – The Stitch Sisters

Our Free Fabric Baskets class!

Of course we had to mention our amazing Fabric Baskets! These are great for storing all sorts in your sewing room. They are a great way to use up leftover scraps too. Of course it’s another one of our free patterns! [Edit: this class is no longer free but is still available to purchase.]

Sewing Machine & Serger Covers – Closet Core Patterns

Closet Core Patterns – Machine Covers

You need to think about your machines when looking for organisation ideas for your sewing space. These lovely designs from Closet Core Patterns are ideal if you have to store your machines away after use. We love the fact that they have included pockets, for storage of your power cables, etc. They also come in sizes for you sewing machine and serger, just perfect!

Hanging Bubble Basket – Sew Very Crafty

Hanging Bubble Basket from SewVeryCrafty

These lovely little hanging bubble baskets are so cute! You could hang them off a peg board and store all of your bits and bobs you need while sewing. The nice wide mouth makes seeing and getting to items simple and easy.

We hope you have enjoyed these organisation ideas for your sewing space. Do you have a favourite free sewing patterns you want to share with us? We would love to hear about it.

Happy Sewing

  1. Hello, from across the pond in Idaho.
    I’ve had my machine now for about a year. I have two actually but the other is old and has stalled and I refuse to get rid of it because it belonged to my paternal grandmother. The other is from my mom. I have just a bit of fabric and tons of thread. I had looked at several other sites and while they were okay and I don’t mind the idea of making clothes, I just feel it’s not my level yet. I found your site and like it a lot. I think I’ll try for the first bag shown. I craft with yarn and definitely need more space to put all of it and my tools. And have enough fabric for it. You’re site is cute and I’ll hopefully get some time either today or this week to start making it. I’ll follow you on YouTube as well. I hope you’re doing well.

  2. Just wanted to let you know how much you have added to my sewing life! Thought I knew what I was doing till I came unstuck with my beloved overlocker & then I took your course! What a game changer! After 3 years of an on off relationship with my Janome 6234xl I’m now totally loving it even more! Thank you so much ???

    Thank you stitch sisters. I discovered you at just the right time when I took the plunge to getting a coverstitch machine. I hated it at first as I just could not get to grips with it, not after following your excellent course. I have just finished making stretch leggings and a sports bra using titan fabric from funki fabrics and 2 simplicity patterns 8560 and 8561, for my grandaughter. I am quite proud of them and your coverstitch course helped me tremendously. I have had an overlocker for about 4 years and thought I knew it quite well BUT your course showed me I didn’t!….keep up the good work ladies. kind regards Cheril
