This is a must-have for every stitcher – hand or machine! I keep a tidy pile that I take away every night when I cross stitch or embroider, but it’s completely another story if I take the machine out. Somehow organisation takes a back step to concentration, muttering, ironing, more muttering and (sometimes) a useable end product. I am however very good at curtains – not so good with clothes or more specifically, skirt hems. Handkerchief hems are my friend.
anyway – I saw this on Pintrest and think it’s a must-make. Like, now.
one of the better step-by-step posts is here: http://www.merrimentdesign.com/pincushion-thread-catcher.php
Let me know how yours goes! All going well, I’ll edit a pic in later 🙂
