Perfect for Travel, Quilt Group and Classes!

This clever little thread catcher folds up when not in use, keeping loose threads contained. It’s small and will easily stow, ready to go, in your bag.

This is a super simple project, so make extras.

You’ll want one next to your favorite chair and one for your quilting bag. Plus, your quilting and sewing friends will appreciate receiving then as gifts.

An empty Pringles can, batting, stiff cardboard and a fabric scrap are quickly sewn together to make this handy thread catcher.

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!
