Catch Me if You Can

I made these thread catchers with my mom a couple weeks ago! I have to say, I am super proud of them! They are so cute and definitely handy! They were kind of difficult to put together because the directions were SO confusing. This experience just reinforced my belief in patterns being not so useful at times. When all else fails, use common sense! The top is a sand bag to hold it down but also works as a pin cushion and the hoop catches all the threads, fabric strips and scraps in one place! I love them!

Okay, those are adorable and a great way to use up left over scrap pieces. When you aren't head high in moving boxes, a new baby, a new town (you'll love it there...I can't believe you will be in my old stomping grounds, oh if those streets could talk) and everything else I would ask that you post a tutorial, I would love to learn how to make them!
