    I saw these at a show in Dallas in March...wish I had bought one then..the lady that made those used butter tubs to make her rings...and used a ring top and bottom...
    these resemble the "leaf catcher" bags we use outside...I googled these using every name I could think of and could find NO tute on how to make them.,...thanks for sharing!

    This is a great idea. My simple thread catcher is a 5" square of fun cotton cut with pinking shears , with a slightly smaller warm and natural scrap layered on top, then sewn down the center. I pat my sewing strings on it when sewing. I made a couple, I fold one in half and take it with me to class or keep it in my quilting basked for hand quilting. I also attached one to my sewing machine table with double sided sticky tape. I also use scraps of my warm and natural batting on my swifter. Use both sides, and then discard.
