21 sewing accessories - projects that would be perfect to make for someone who sews. Most of them are quick and easy makes ~ Threading My Way

Is there even such a word as sewist? I expect the correct word is sewer, but I refuse to be called by a term which also denotes waste water pipes. And not all sewists are seamstresses. So, for the purposes of today's post, sewist it is. I would value your thoughts on this.

All projects have been chosen from the Sewing Accessories link party, here at Threading My Way.

Selvedge Pin Cushion by Ros, from Sew Delicious

Triangle Pincushion ~ Tutorial by Ella nad Nesta, from Ella and Nesta's Little Room


Embroidered Pincushion ~ Tutorial by Audrey, from Audrey B.

Fabric Covered Notebook ~ Tutorial by Deby, from So Sew Easy


Coffee Mug Organizer ~ Tutorial by Mandy, from Hong Kong Chic


Jeans Needle Case ~ Tutorial by Marisa, from Passion et Couture

Scissors Keeper ~ Pattern by Susie, from Susie's Sunroom

Thread Catcher and Notions Basket ~ Tutorial by Niki, from Roonie Ranching


Or how about a small hamper, one or two of the above in a fabric basket, together with some sewing tools. Need help thinking of sewing tools, these posts might help...

I could do with a few of these accessories myself, especially the pattern weights. They'd be much better than my sticky tape holder!!!

  4. I use sewist as I am definitely not a seamstress but it feels like a made up word to me so I never feel that comfortable using it. Can't come up with a better one though Pam.

    Great roundup!

  6. I'm the only sewer here, but I am more than willing to my a gift for me! There are more than a few I'd like.

    What a pleasant surprise to see my kit there! Someone commented on my blog with an idea for fixing my problem sewing vinyl as a result of clicking your link to the post on the kit. Thanks for that, too.

  7. Thank you for featuring our triangle pincushion! There are lots of projects we would like to try, thank you for the inspiration.
    P.S. Sewer is rather horrid, so we agree on the Sewist (much more pretty!).
