Make Your Own Inexpensive Cleanup Tool for Just a Few Dollars
Are you tired of hauling out the vacuum every time you sew? No matter how careful we are, there are always stray thread snippings on the floor around where we sew. Cleaning up usually requires bringing out the vacuum cleaner, which can be a real chore if your sewing room is on a different floor than where you usually store it.
This great tip makes thread cleanup a breeze! It’s simple, inexpensive and just simply works. And, you don’t need much space to store this handy thread cleanup tool in your sewing room.
Start with a small roller. Better yet, find one with a long handle, like this or this.
Add a bristly hair roller (or two). Voila! A tool that will easily pick up stray threads from the floor.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
