One of our favorite types of sewing projects is the organizer. They’re the perfect projects to customize based on the size you need and the style you want. Whether it’s paper and pens, groceries and household products, or even remote controls, we’ve rounded up a list of super stylish, easy-to-sew tutorials for you to choose from to keep your stuff organized at home or on the go!
