Pretty Meets Functional
I have a very bad habit of throwing thread on the floor. I little clip here and a little snip there and I think I can just sweep it up later. Well, picture me with sharp objects trying to unclog my vacuum cleaner the other day. Not a pretty sight and what a waste of precious sewing time! I remember that I had purchased a pattern for a thread catcher/pin cushion years ago. Yes, you read that right, years.
I chose some of my favorite Japanese prints as well as other pretties from my stash. The pattern came with the tubing that feeds through a casing which holds the little bucket open. Now I have no excuses for my laziness and can keep the sharp objects away from electrical appliances!
