Thread Catchers

One of the mini projects at quilt guild a few months ago, was to make a collapsible thread catcher. This thread catcher is perfect for putting in a sewing case. I finally finished mine. We were given all the pieces, ready to assemble. However, I should have checked the measurements because the bottom cutouts were a tad too big so that with the fabric attached, it didn't fit as well as it should have. I also think that a thinner fabric might have worked better too.  Anyway, at least I finished one of the projects!

The blue thread catcher is a plastic portable doggie water bowl. 

Here's a video and a tutorial so that you can make your own thread catcher.

I also found a few other thread catchers for you to see.


  1. So cool! I really need to make one of these or a few; for each of my travelling hand stitching projects! I love your choice of material!

  2. Such a great idea and I love how it closes down for travelling.

  3. Fun links once again. Just one thing tho - the link to 'All People Quilt' for some reason ends up in my blog...not sure why?

  4. A friend made me a thread catcher..I use it all the time and always think of her!
