I am a new sewer. I bought myself an inexpensive machine last year and really enjoy playing around with it. I saw a pic someone had posted of a thread catcher. I had never seen one before, but my dining room where I sew had little bits of thread all over the floor and table. What a wonderful idea Grin. So I made one w/some scrap fabric I had on hand. And then I saw pattern weights and made some of those too and I figured I should have a matching wrist pin cushion, so I recovered it w/the owl fabric too!

Oh, those are cute. Now that you mention it, a thread catcher would be a great idea. *looks around and see's tiny scraps of yarn here and there*
Did you come up with yours or did you look off an existing tutorial?
Thanks for sharing. Smiley

I agree on that one *looks around too*. I should make one too, who knows it might be the next hype Grin

Thanks guys. I didn't use a tutorial, just looked at a few different examples that people had posted. They are very simple. If it's not simple, I can't do it! But I'm sure there are fancy smancy versions out there Wink. Whoever came up with the idea was a genius; it really has helped with the thread mess.
