I was inspired to make a pincushion/thread catcher bag for a personal swap and decided to make myself a prototype first to work out the kinks Smiley Also my vacumn will really appreciate the thread and yarn scraps going in a bag instead of on the floor. I really like purple and butterflies so it doesn't match my couch but it make me happy. Smiley   Here is a link to the tutorial I used for the thread catcher bag.  http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/2009/03/elizabeths-fabric-focus-3/   I liked the idea of a two color pincushion one part for the pins and one part for the needles so you can find your needles more easily. I also wanted somewhere to put my scissors so I added a pocket under the pincushion.

How awesome!  I think every stitcher needs one of these.  I also love the addition of the pocket!
