    My DH bought a Thread Spool holder for me and I love it but was worried about the thread sitting out where it could get dusty.
    Then I saw this fabric! I had to have it and decided to make a "dust cover" for my thread. No pattern, just winged it and played with the embroidery feature on my new machine.
    Too much fun. ;-)

    I purchased some clear vinyl @ JoAnn's, cut a generous square and tacked it up over my thread rack. Works--but nearly as cute as yours!!

    Oh, I have that thread holder as well. I may just have to copy your idea! If that's ok?!
