One of the challenges given at our last Quilt Guild meeting was to make a thread catcher. What’s a thread catcher, you ask? (I asked the same thing). It’s a small bowl for holding all those gazillions of cut threads we accumulate on our table (or floor) while sewing. It took me a moment to warm up to the idea, but once I got going … well, I have found my new favourite thing to make.
I designed these little fabric bowls or buckets with a folded top edge to be able to show off two co-ordinating fabrics, in one sweet little functional item. These three all use fabrics from my Helen’s Garden collection. If one adjusted the size, just imagine all the treasures one could keep or display in these lovely bowls.
They can, of course, be used as a taller container without folding down the top edge. This really nicely shows off a favourite pattern, like Enchanted below.
In hopes that you are as excited about making these as I am, I have been working on a pattern for a myriad of sizes that will shortly be available here. Stay tuned …
