I've been married two years, and moved out of home for about six years, but every time I see my old room at Mom's house I want to move back in!  It is the second largest bedroom in the house (I need to remember to thank her for that) and she's been remodeling it into a kick-ass craft room.  When I saw this fabric at Joann's, I knew I had to get it because it matches the new curtains almost perfectly. 

Using mimiw's thread on thread catchers (is that redundant?) and the link to the tutorial, I made Mom two thread catchers for her new kick-ass craft room.  One for the ironing board and one for the sewing machine table.  The pin cushion is not removable, and I used thick interfacing instead of the strapping suggested in the tutorial.





I had just enough fabric left over to make her a fold-n-zip tote from heartofmary's tutorial.



Thanks!

Those are really nifty. Thanks for linking to the original thread as I've been meaning to make a couple for myself. I LOVE that fabric by the way. Yours look really well done too.

Looks nice and I am sure it feels nice to make something for your mom: )

My question is - how do the things stay ON the table. Are they glued, or are they filled with sand?

The squares that are sitting on the table are filled with sand (nice safe playground sand).  They double as pin cushions.  I need to make one for myself, but my list of WIP is looong. Cheesy
