so. i was mucking about this afternoon...

what about something like these



a wee pincushion with a thread catcher attachment. the only downside is. i would probably send the cushion empty.  shipping cost would get WAY out of hand quickly... but then you can stuff with what ever you prefer. (cause man, the internet is undecided as to what makes the best stuffing) 

this is also a prototype. i think i would make the opening a bit wider.  and i learned where the sanps, or velcro need to go the hard way.  Roll Eyes

yes I could use one of those - and agree about the stuffing!

I'm using a plastic bag as well, those thread cathcers are so cute, and clever! what are they stuffed with, sand? I know it has to be kinda heavy so as to not fall off the table.  So much cute stuff on here!  any idea when signups are gonna start??

In trying to think of lighter things, I though about making blank journals. Do people like journals? If there was want, I could make them in to swap notebooks instead of blank.

I have been wanting to participate in a sweat shoppe swap for a long time!  Everything on this thread looks awesome!!!  Would anyone be interested in a set of two reusable sandwich bags and an apple cozy for eco-friendly lunching?  Smiley  Here is picture of what I would be making:



I only have one bag in the picture, but the set would include two.  The bag is lined in vinyl and has velcro for a good seal. 

Thoughts?
