Free Thread Catcher Tutorial with pin cushion | Sewing with Scraps

We love this thread catcher tutorial, because it keeps a disposal point right at hand as well as providing a pin cushion. Of course, we need both!!

Thread Catcher Details:

  • Easy to make/Perfect for Beginners
  • Includes pincushion
  • Clean finished with lining

Supplies Needed to Complete:

  • Fabric (Fat quarters work nicely, but you’ll need 1- 17.5”x11” of the outside fabric, and 1 full Fat Quarter or 18”x 22” piece of the lining fabric.)
  • 1/2” x 18” of any type of stabilizer for the top edge of the bag.
  • Rice, sand, or crushed walnut shells for pillow filling
  • Rotary cutter & self-healing mat
  • Thread to match
  • Iron
  • Basic Sewing Supplies

A thread catcher works best for stashing something very light weight, but could work for more than just bits of trash. Binder clips, extra bobbins, and seam gauges are a few ideas to keep close at hand with these hanging bins.
