Its taken awhile but I have finally finished the tutorial for my super duper thread catcher, just in time to submit it into the sew mama sew competition.
I have been so time poor lately, mainly because I have been doing other sewing projects but more so because Amelia has not been sleeping all that well because of a virus. First it was teeth then the cold and now she must be enjoying being a fusspot because the grizzles are continuing. Poor little bugger, its very hard for them because they cant communicate. Poor mamma due to sleep deprivation and feeling like a basket ball as my tummy is starting to swell. Now in my fifth month and very happy to announce that we are having a little boy. Was happy with either sex but banking on a boy. It means that if needed we can stop at the second and have our pigeon pair.
So here is the tutorial and pattern for the must have accompliment to sewing.
The base panel size can be changed according to the width of your machine. This particular pattern is for a wide quilting machine but it also looks good under a smaller model. The pocket for the scissors may need also to vary depending on the type of thread snippers you have, mine are straight up and down, thus a smaller pocket was required, other snippers have a finger hole (not sure on the necessity of that feature) which means a wider pocket is needed.
It really does make sewing a little less messy, particularly if you are like me and need to set up the machine in the kitchen every time you want to sew. Its a very simple tutorial, I hope you enjoy!!
