    I've looked at the little collapsible thread catcher but thought it was a little too big for my to-go bag. I found this little cutey and it's perfect. I used my 60 degree ruler to cut out the pattern.

    What a cute little "catcher" thanks so much for sharing it!!
    Ok Ellen I just went and looked at the tutorial of it...I don't understand what makes the bottom part of it? Can you explain that to me? There wasn't any mention of it in the directions...

    SO neat , How meny triangles do you need to cut for each? I am seeing 3 tri or 6 pieces of fabric is this correct? Thanks for info.

    Hope I can explain.. you only need one triangle. After you sew, turn and press you match up two points, fold one point down halfway, mark and stitch. You do this for each of the three points.

    It makes a little bottom after you match up the three points and sew down halfway. I think once you cut out the triangle and try it you will understand better. Maybe practice on a piece of paper

    Thanks for posting this! I just made one in less than 15 minutes (still have to add the buttons though!) This is so cute quick and easy. Perfect little gifts for some of my sewing friends for Christmas!

    Thanks, I may need to make more than one to catch all the thread I seem to accumulate.

    Maybe I could make one and attach it to a ribbon to place around my neck. That's it! A Loose Thread Necklace for all those good souls who are always picking threads off my clothes! :thumbup:

    Thank you for sharing. This is as cute as can be. Each year I have given the ladies that I work with something that I have made without alot of cost involved. This is a contender.

    That is cute. They'd also make nice little gifts filled with bath pearls or candies. :-D

    I had posted that I made one last night. but just as a side note i turned my inside out so the seams weren't showing. showed my sis (who created a quilting monster according to my husband!) and she loved it. thought it would be great for some of our guild members!
