CADDY is great for keeping your tools handy, either at home or on-the-go.
When open, your supplies are instantly visible and accessible—no need to unpack things to access them. The solid wood (or foam core board) base allows the Caddy to be picked up while open and moved about.
When closed, the Caddy is compact, and the optional side flaps and top flap keep your supplies secure. Optional handles provide style and allow the Caddy to hang from a peg if desired.
The inspiration for this tool organizer came about because of lost supplies at a class—this organizer easily keeps your small supplies all together.
Not just for sewing tools—use for scrapbooking, knitting, crocheting, stationery, etc.
BONUS: Mini Tool Holders. To further protect and organize your tools, pattern includes instructions for making a small Scissor Case, Pointy Tool Holder, and Pin Cone–these mini tool holders can be used with the Caddy or on their own.
