This thread catcher is perfect due to the perfect fabric for the job.  I have had this fabric in my stash for over a year.  I guess it was waiting for me to make this.

The pin holder on the top is removable.  I also inserted a cut off 2-liter bottle bottom so I can just dump out the snippets.  A tile weighs down the whole thing.

Thanks for looking.

That's a great thread catcher, I've been meaning to make one for myself, but I'm not sure which type as I do my handiwork all over the place, sometimes there is a table, sometimes there is an arm of a chair, many times on the floor in the corner with nothing around me at all. I like your design alot and thanks for sharing how you weighted it. A tile is a great idea!

it is very nice idea to clean up all the mess while working, i am always terrible to pick up threads later on so anyone can trace the treads and see i sewed the night before.. cute.

You put all of those little pieces of thread and fabric you cut off when you sew.  To keep your work area tidy.

Thanks.

You never really realize how much you need one of those until you look down, and there's tiny threads all over the floor! Thankfully, I have a vacuum right next to my sewing table..
