We are thrilled to announce the release of A Place for Everything 2.0, the organizer that really has a place for everything. Watch the Introduction video above to learn all there is to know about this awesome pattern and get inspired to start sewing.

Learn more about what you’ll need to get started when you watch the A Closer Look video.


This spacious organizer stores and carries tools and supplies, providing visibility and easy access to all.

The bag features handles and an adjustable/detachable carrying strap along with two removable pocket pages with mesh or vinyl pockets in a variety of styles.

Abundant pockets in a variety of styles are the key to ensuring that there is a place for everything… and that everything is in its place!

The case measures about 10"H x 14"W x 5½"D when closed. Inside are two removable pages, each measuring 13"H x 20"W.


A Place for Everything 2.0 is an update of our best-selling A Place for Everything pattern which was released in 2013.

Just like a new edition of a textbook, this new version of the pattern features improved design and layout, easier-to-follow steps and diagrams, and our newest and best techniques.

We also made significant changes to the project, making it easier to assemble while adding significantly more storage space.

Specific changes include:

  • Moved the zippered opening on the bag to the top, so contents will be secure even if the bag isn’t completely zipped shut.
  • Added handles to each side of the bag as well as an adjustable, detachable carrying strap.
  • Added pockets to the exterior of the bag on both the front and the back.
  • Made the bag wider and deeper and the pocket pages taller.
  • Simplified construction of the pockets on the removable pages, eliminating the pleats.
  • Added option to make pockets on the pocket pages of mesh as well as vinyl.
  • Added pockets to the BACKS of the pocket pages.
  • Replaced the hook and loop tape on the interior of the bag with a strap to hold the pages in place.

We have also filmed an Add-On Video for the project to help you make the bag. Since the A Place for Everything 2.0 pattern includes a coupon to get the Add-On Video at no charge, we would recommend that you purchase the new and improved version of the pattern.


We made some major changes when we upgraded our A Place For Everything pattern regarding the pocket pages. We knew we wanted more pocket configurations and an easier way to make the pockets as well as to add and remove the pages. So that’s what we did!

What can you hold in these pocket pages?

  • Sewing machine feet
  • Sewing notions
  • Specialty rulers
  • Art supplies
  • Jewelry and/or jewelry assembly supplies
  • Embroidery threads and materials
  • EPP projects
  • Stamps and office supplies
  • So much more!

TIP: You can make one case for several hobbies and just switch out pre-loaded pocket pages depending on where you’re going and what you’re planning to work on!


Start your shopping list! A Place for Everything 2.0 takes a number of supplies. You can find a more quantitative supplies list on the back of the pattern or when you click on the “Supplies” tab on the A Place for Everything 2.0 pattern webpage.


Suggested supplies/tools:

You can also save time and money by ordering the A Place for Everything 2.0 Bundle! The bundle includes all the supplies you’ll need (with some left over) to make this organizer. Bundles do not include fabric, thread, tools, or the pattern.


A Place for Everything 2.0 has a lot of zippered pockets. Zippered closures keep your precious tools and supplies safe and secure in their pockets. We recommend using our handbag zippers because the wide tape is easy to sew and the larger metal pulls make for easy opening!

If you’re nervous about attaching zippers, have no fear! Take your time and watch our zipper tutorials. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to install zippers using the ByAnnie method.

You can even practice by using our free downloadable PDF patterns (PiecekeeperCall Me, and Easy Does It) to master the process. Each pattern comes with free Add-on Video tutorials.


Once you master zipper installation, take a look at our PDF pattern Zipper Pulls to brainstorm fun ways to make fabric zipper pulls for a truly customized look!


As we come out with new patterns and new 2.0 patterns, Annie and the team have been busy filming Add-on Videos!

Most Add-on Videos aren’t complete step-by-step tutorials, but they cover the more unique or challenging parts of each pattern.

If you’re purchasing a pattern that has an Add-on Video available, wait until you receive your pattern in the mail before you purchase the video. The video has a value of $5, but your pattern will arrive with a unique $5 coupon for that specific video so you can access it at no further charge. If you accidentally purchase the video before receiving your pattern and using the code, be sure to email us at [email protected] or give us a call.


The A Place for Everything 2.0 pattern is fun to make and offers a great opportunity to learn and practice skills used in many ByAnnie patterns.

We can’t wait to see what you make, so be sure to share pictures of your finished projects with us through our Monthly Photo Contest!

----Happy Stitching!
