Today's project was a very cute little fabric bag designed to sit next to a sewing machine or on the table next to where you're doing handwork; the purpose of the bag is to catch all of the little thread ends that inevitably accumulate as we stitch. The whole project takes only minutes to do! Here's mine, done with some scraps of batik and some buttons left over from another project a few years back. (The spool of thread is there to give you an idea of the size of the thread catcher.) Of course, if the right buttons didn't happen to be lying around waiting for the project, you could always use a decorative stitch on your sewing machine instead. Isn't it cute? If you'd like to make one, too, there are instructions here. Mine will live in my sewing machine case, collapsed and ready for taking along with me.
