The ScrapMaBob Review...or the greatest thing to happen to my sewing table review.

If you have been reading here for a while you know I am all about sewing and crafting.  If you know me personally, you know I don't have the greatest organizational skills.  My dining room has been craft central for three years and that isn't working.  It gets VERY annoying having to move everything out of there for birthday parties.  That is where the  present opening happens.

So slowly but surely I have been transitioning my orange room downstairs aka the study aka Grandmas's room, into my craft sewing room.  I got a new table for my sewing machine and then I came across this awesome item:

 See that thing hanging off the table?  It is probably the most ingenious thing. 
 The ScrapMaBob hooks to any table with a lip and hold a drink up to 32 ounces.
One incredibly cool thing about this is it has a slit cut out for a coffee cup handle.  I didn't notice that part on their website!!  

Why do you need this, you may ask?  Let me tell you.

First.  This keeps materials AWAY from drinks.  I know with V running around she likes to spill my drinks.  She doesn't mean to, but it happens.  With the drink being in here so can't easily get the drink out, so she can't spill it.  Also, when the sewing machine is in use, it vibrates.  The vibration could cause a drink to spill on a table, or if you have a cold drink with ice...you get condensation on the table.  Resulting in wet fabric.  Not fun.

Second.  See that bag hanging down?  It is a scrap bag.  You can throw your trash in there!  How handy is that?!?!  It also folds up a bit so it isn't as bulky as it looks.  I have yet to use the scrap bag for scraps.  V believes it is either a holder of her stuffed dog OR a home for her princesses.  I tried to put something in there and she yelled at me.  You know what else it could be used for...SNACKS.  You could put a bag of snacks in the black bag.  Crumb free work area!!!

The frame attaches to a table with the maximum width of 3.25"  My table is the perfect width, but the underside bar running across was a bit too fat, so I improvised.  Instead of hooking totally flush with the table, it sits off it JUST a bit.  I have put numerous drinks in it and pushed down on it.  It feels rather sturdy.  I was comfortable enough to put a big cup of hot coffee in there!
Now I know what you are thinking.  "Man Sarah.  That is pretty cool.  I wish I had a ScrapMaBob."  Guess what, you can! ScrapBox has graciously allowed me to give away one ScrapMaBob to one lucky reader in the US!  Here's how:

  23. Wow, that looks like a handy gadget! You could hold anything in that cup. Recently I 'set down' wool felt I was working on, on top of the open tube of glue. It was really strong craft bond(Locktite)& the result was not pretty. I've been making a Mandrake, the mythical monster that is the root of the Mandrake plant for my 11 yr old grandson. He's a big Harry Potter fan.

  28. I am a paper crafter. I make greeting cards, paper beads, scrapbook pages, 3D paper items, paper flowers and whatever comes to my attention that looks like fun. I am also a fused glass artist and I sit at my crafting table to attaching findings to my glass jewelry pieces. I could sure use a ScrapMaBob for my coffee cup or water...

  32. I practically live by sewing machine! I'm an avid quilter, sewer, scrapbook making machine and always have little tidbits floating around me. Had a bag hanging off the sewing machine desk but unfortunately when I went to change the bag, the tape had ripped the finish off it. So then stuck a small wastepaper basket near the machine, I have 3 cats that think that's their toys. Very frustrating! And forget about having a drink nearby.....either gets knocked off the table or little paws come and want to drink from the glass. This just might solve a lot of frustration!

  46. I mostly scrapbook and make cards. In September I sew Medieval garb and in October I sew Halloween costumes. This gadget would be great at either table to protect my projects from spills!

  47. This would be great on my Treadle sewing machine that I use always. I put ice in my drinks and it leaves a wet ring which isn't cool on my wood cabinet of my treadle. I sew anything and everything, all on my treadle, from Calico Rag Folks-- a soft sculptured cloth doll-- to my clothes. I love my treadle that my grandmother gave me, she sewed my fathers baby clothes on it and I have sewed all my kids clothes on it.

  61. I love most crafts - scrapbooking, sewing, card making, beading, crochet, etc... This would be great to keep trash and liquids off my work space. My favorite project has to be the backpack I made using pre-quilted, double sided fabric. It's beautiful and I customized the pockets and zippered compartments to my needs. I've taken it to Disney World twice and it's awesome. It stands out from all the other bags and that makes it easy to keep an eye on (not that I set it down).
