Today I made a thread catcher just like everyone on Stitch-a-Long.
I used mums Pfaff and was able to choose a fancy stitch for the edging. I chose some star flowers.
I love this project, quick and easy and I think I will have to make some more.
My sister and my mum have been eyeing off my thread catcher/pin cushion that the Christine gave me.
So I searched google and found this pattern. This is Kailene's she loves dogs and is an avid cross stitcher so this will come in handy for her. The catcher is huge! Lots of thread can be stored in there.
Mum didn't want hers so big so I tried to make it a bit differently.
Mum's was made out the same fabric I cut out for my singlets. She is happy with the end product.
These are my first attempts and hence the stitching is not the best!
Thank goodness for air conditioners, it has been 39degres here in Canberra. I am feeling sorry for my family and friends who are in NSW experiencing high 40s. So glad I am not teaching those swimming lessons, the water would be too hot.
