    Hanging bag/pincushion thingy

    Does anyone know the name of that little scrap bag that hangs from a pincushion on edge of sewing table with rubbery stuff on bottom? I made myself one from a kit and want to make one for a friend. Can't find my pattern and don't know how to search for a tute. Thank you!

    I would call it a 'Theadcatcher'. Something like this?

    YES! Thank you. But I can't buy the pattern. Mine's a liitle different, but close. Guess I should just measure the one I made and figure it out.

    Krista, I like that one even better! Gail, don't fuss to find it, thank you so much. I'm going to make up my own, I think, using ideas from all of these.

    I made one after seeing someone with one at a sewing class. I just winged it, but am happy with the result.

    I used decorative sand, bought at Michael's for the pin cushion weight. I used the lid of a large yogourt container for the base of the pin cushion.

    To keep the thread catcher bag open I used the upper rim of the yogourt container. I do not have to worry about it collapsing.

    Another way of keeping the catcher open is use that rigid plastic 'tape' you sometimes get round large parcels and boxes. Sometimes round bundles of papers and magazines too

    Thanks for sharing. I really think this is very cute. I have two that I bought at quilt shows. This one is just so clever I may break down and make it. It is funny, I use to sew clothes all the time, now that my passion is quilting, I rarely choose to do anything else. But, this just might be a to do. I have a few quilt friends that might like one for Christmas.

    Knittette, that is what I use when I make mine. Works great. Go to www.tipnut.com/sewing-caddy-patterns. There are several there. I use the last one on the left side. The red one. I've made several. I even sold a couple, but, mostly just give them away. Nice to personalize your fabric to your taste & decor. Very easy to make. I've made up to 4 in just a couple of hours. Have fun.
