In the yarnies VS sewists swap, my partner coryjo, along with the great stuff she crocheted for me, sent me a heap of FQ and pieces of fabric.  I made this thread catcher/pin cushion combo out of the pinks and browns.  At the moment, the thread scraps go in a pile on the table,  and then they somehow end up on the floor...  The pins are usually in a container, but I spill them.  Problem solved.  Please excuse the tip that is my dining table. I have about 2 hundy sewing projects on the go at the moment  Cheesy

   

   

As you can see, I couldn't wait to start using it, and it is already full of thread scraps.

Thanks for looking

That looks great. Is the pincushion weighted with something?

I was wondering the same thing, I guess if I am going to attempt to make one I should find out also.

Yep, it is weighted, with some sinkers I pinched from the shed while hubby was mowing the lawn. Shhhh.   Grin  But you could use anything, some pebbles, a piece of wood, a sand bag in the middle of the filling.  I didn't have any of those other things.  Well I had the wood but that would have involved getting out the saw and cutting it then cleaning up my mess.  So sinkers it is.
