The Sofa Saddlebag | Tuesday, October 31 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Has hubby been complaining that he has not seen the top of the coffee table in months? Are the rugs in your house and your clothing covered in loose threads from your latest sewing project? Have the applique scissors ever fallen and speared you in the foot? When looking for that embroidery panel you just put down are you horrified to find it under the cat? If the answer is yes to any of these questions, then the sofa saddlebag is for you! Here’s a great little organizer that will hang next to your favorite chair. Slip the weighted side arm under or beside your seat cushion. The big catch-all pocket snaps shut with the help of a short length of spring metal carpenters measuring tape. Customize it to fit your own chair or sofa by taking one simple measurement. It’s easy!

Blocks are stitched without a back or a sashing which also helps speed things along. Doing some stitch in the ditch quilting and adding a binding is a quick way of finishing off your tree skirt.
