Using 2.5 inch charms
Sew a piece 2x9 blocks

This will be the pocket section
Of a sewing machine pad
Then sew a piece 6x9 squares
This will be the body
Of the sewing machine pad 

I used scrap batting too
3 pieces butted against each other
They will be quilted in place

I chose a blue backing
Then layered like you would
A quilt
I lightly pressed helping the batting to
Stick in place
Quilt as desired.because my batt
Strips went left to right i quilted up and down

Quilted top to bottom
To hold in place

Now I will trim this piece
And on the pocket section I
Sewed the top edge to the back small lining
And flipped it to finish the top edge
Then quilted with Batting inside

The pocket section is lined with bottom edge of the mat piece and the size of pockets sewn
I will do a small one for seam 
And med one for pincushion
And large one for scissors
Then will bind all the way around

Set my machine on it leaving the pocket section
Hanging in front

A nice little gift for yourself
Or make one for a friend
I made one in pink for Jacky
And am just getting around to making
