Sewing caddy - thread catcher.

My sewing area has been a little too messy recently {the addition of a serger adds to the mess twofold}, so I finally made a sewing caddy for my desk. I used this tutorial {click here}, which I would rate as an intermediate project. It's seems more complicated than it should be, but the end product is well constructed.
The pattern uses standard sewing notions, so I had everything on hand, which was nice. The pin cushion is filled with polyfil and weighted down with a bag of rice. There are pockets for the pin container, seam ripper {aka my bff}, scissors, etc. The thread catcher is easily removable to take to the trash.


  1. I don't even know what this is, or why you need something that catches thread, but I love the pattern and it looks great. Hoping that I can get into sewing at some point in my life! And thanks for the advice. I'll pick up some cabbage tomorrow "The Hive" aka Hy-Vee...LOVE that store!

  2. Cute fabrics! Thanks for the link.
