Or Just Make the Cute Turtle Pincushion!
Patterned after a traditional thread catcher, this pocket and pincushion combo is both cute and functional. The sweet turtle pincushion is weighted to keep everything in place.
The hanging pocket can be used as a thread catcher, or store things there that you want to keep handy near your machine. This is a great way to free up limited table space.
Whether you make the full set or just the pincushion, choose fabrics you love and have fun with this project. It makes a great gift for a quilting or sewing friend, too, so consider making two while you’re at it.
The finished sizes are:
- Pincushion – 4″ x 5″
- Pocket – 6″ x 7″
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!
