    How funny I just saw these at Joanns today and thought I am not buying one I could just make one. Did you just make them or use a pattern? I would love to make one of these!

    I made 2 pincushions and thread catchers for Christmas gifts. They are fun to do, aren't they?

    Yours are really cute--I love your fabrics

    Thank you, everyone

    The links that that were shared are 'pretty' close to my pattern. I do like the idea that the 'bag' is removable, mine is not. I use regular rice for the pin cushion, so it would be a mess if one tried to wash them. So the velcro (hook & loop) or button is a great idea.

    again thanks for the kudos

    Oh This is great! I have been trying to think what the heck to buy/make my next door neighbor for her birthday this spring. She is a quilter, so this will be great! I will just add some pattern, blades, needles and a few fat quarters .. oh yeah! Thanks ever so much.

    The gift thread catchers you made for your retreat are just so nice. there are some Lucky Ladies in that one!
