About This Design:
Designer Georgia McCroy has this to say about her pattern: "I like to design patterns for fun things that may not necessarily be considered quilting.  The free pattern I have attached is for an Armchair Buddy.  This pincushion drapes across the arm of my recliner to hold pins and needles while I'm binding or hand piecing.  It also has two pockets to store my snippers, thread, thimble, etc.  It's very easy to make and will make a great gift item for your favorite sewing enthusiast too."

About the Designer  - Georgia McCroy:
I am a charter member of QCA and have recently debuted my new pattern website called Crazy Lady Quilt Designs.  I am a 15 year quilting veteran.  I began designing my own patterns almost immediately.  Even if I had a pattern, I seldom managed to actually finish the project without changing some design element.  My friends would come to me to write patterns for specific projects or to help them decipher a difficult pattern.  Along the way, I found Electric Quilt design software and I was hooked.  In August, I launched my website to sell my patterns.  It is www.crazyladyquiltdesigns.com.  My patterns are also getting out into the shops in my area of northwestern Minnesota, but I also have shops in other states ordering patterns now.

My most recent designs are inspired by back to school time.  Check my website to see my Blooming Backpack and my locker organizer.  If you have any questions, please contact me at Georgia @crazyladyquiltdesigns.com or gmccroy @gvtel.com.

That is something very useful that I never thought of!!  Thank you for sharing. Did you make it from a pattern? I found a wonderful site called http://www.toadusew.com that has some of the most creative and unique quilt patterns and a great selection of all types of kites, quilt patterns, just about everything even fabric.  If you are ever looking for some creative quilt patterns or just want to be inspired you should check toadusew.com out!

I've been thinking of making something like this for my machine quilting frame.  I think this pattern will work for that.  Thank you.

Love the Armchair Buddy.  Thank you so much for sharing.  I will call it "Georgia Buddy" as soon as I make it and hang over the arm of my favorite quilting chair.  Also, thank you for sharing your website.  I will have to share with my quilting friends.  Keep yourself in stitches!!!  Candi

I really like this pattern.  May I make about 10 of them to sell at a quilt show that will benefit a battered women's shelter?

Thanks for a great pattern.  I have a leather recliner that I keep losing things in when I sew.  Armchair buddy is the perfect solution.

I love this!  I'm making a couple for Christmas and one for me.  Directions are clear and I love the fact that it is made from fat quarters.  Congrats on your website, I'll be sure to check it out.
