    4" have a look at the beginning, so easy to make, one word of warning, donīt use a thick fabric for it though.

    This is wondeful! I can't wait to make one. I'm off to see if I have a 4" hoop! Thanks so much!

    It took me a while but I did it!!! I didn't have a 4" embroidery hoop. Not a single margerine tub or any 4" dish in my extensive collection of little dishes. I was about to give up when I measured the top of my large iced coffee plastic cup from Dunkin Donuts, VOILA! I cut off the rim of the cup and it worked perfect. Then I wondered what kind of cardboard you used.... I tried an empty cereal box and it also worked! I used a polyester batting and followed your instructions and I have a real cute little folding thread catcher!!! I took a couple of pictures and I will post them in the picture file. Thanks so much Elle for posting this neat tutorial!!!!!

    Here is the Thredcatcher that I made. It was really fun to make and I am amazed at how it works!

    Here it is all folded up!

    Thanks so much for this tutorial! I really used what I had on hand. Only had a 6" hoop and a sheet of template plastic that I cut for the two circles. Since it was bigger around, I didn't think it needed to be as tall, so I made it 6" tall.
    It works great and stands on its own. And still amazed that it will stand without collasping. Chris

    I was just going to ask about making it with something larger than 4". I saved the tops off of some of that Reese Potato Salad..I think its 4 1/2" diameter...so I'll have to just dive right in since yours worked so well!

    Yep Patti works with all sizes, BUT just remember to make the fabric larger tooooooo and the base.

    I made one the other night. I forgot to take a pic and gave it to my mom. I know I'll be making more so I'll take some then.
    I used a sour cream container top and 5 1/2" circle of fabric (I wasn't sure about the 5 3/3" in the instructions) and mine seemed a little shorter. It took me about 3 hours to complete because of hand sewing, I couldn't figure out how to get it on my machine. :-(

    Unfortunately Mrs Shak it is a hand sewing project, but glad you are finding the tutorial good and making your own adjustments
