Pincushion-thread Catcher

12 Jan

These pincushion-thread catchers come in handy for a seamstress.  I have made several of them and given them as gifts.  Merriment Design uses clothes line for the hoop in the catch bag, I used plastic tubing available at the hardware store by the yard. She uses a door hinge as a weight to balance the weight of the thread catcher bag, anything with weight that is flat will work.  You might try a couple of ceramic tiles.
