Artist and fabric designer Hoey (Little Stitches) is known in the sewing world for her cute, quirky designs. In this project collection, she provides patterns and instructions for organizers in a variety of styles, from simple needlebooks and pincushions to zippered pouches and totes. Some of the projects will be familiar to sewists with experience in bag making, while others, such as the triple pouch, present a new spin on storage. Though the organizers are designed to store sewing supplies, they're not limited to that purpose, making them useful gift projects as well. VERDICT -Sewists looking for clever ways to use up their stash and organize their supplies will find numerous options here.--Library Journal, 6/15/2017
We love Aneela Hoey's style and attention to detail, which is apparent in her latest book, Stitched Sewing Organizers. It features 15 adorable projects that'll keep your sewing space in great shape, or would make the perfect gift for your quilting bestie or a project swap. There are projects for your sewing studio, including needlebooks, tape measure covers and fabric boxes; but there are also a heap of pouches, totes and folios that will help you keep portable projects and your hand sewing kit organized. Aneela includes lots of know-how when talking about the specific materials and supplies, which of course include interfacing and fleece, needed for the projects. The basic techniques section is comprehensive, so there's no need to be daunted by the detailed finishes on the projects. The only problem with this book is deciding which projects to make first!--Make Modern, 17
The answer to the non-sewer's question--'How many sewing organisers do you need?'--is 15. These quick and adaptable projects are designed to fit inside one another to bring order to your unruly supplies, while teaching new skills!--Sew Magazine, August 2017

The author is one of my favourite bloggers and her designs are just lovely.
There are several projects I plan on making from the book which I am sure I will use over and over again.
Beautifully photographed with full size templates at the back of the book. Well worth a five star rating
However the clever way these are put together and clearly described have inspired me to make many of these already.
Don't just think of them as sewing organisers, there are many many ways of using these patterns.
