My Craft Swap Project...Revealed!

October 18, 2010

Saturday's Fall Craft Swap was a huge success!!! I thought long and hard about what I wanted to make for my Craft Swap project and since all of the Swap members sew, I thought that Thread Catchers would be the perfect project! :)

I unfortunately got a slow start, as I wasn't able to find a pattern for a simple Thread Catcher anywhere. I had come across some samples at various quilt stores and was confident that I could write up a pattern for the perfect Thread Catcher. I started out my making a prototype and wrote down some important dimensions and then I let time get away from me and found myself having to make another prototype, giving me a second opportunity to write out clear and concise directions (like I should have done the first time!), before proceeding with my assembly line.

I can't tell you how happy I am of how the Thread Catchers came out (the Swap group was stoked too!). Everyone that has seen the finished product asked how much I charged for them, which got me thinking about making some additional Thread Catchers for November's Craft Show! :)

Make sure to come back tomorrow to see what the other members of my Craft Swap group made...they never cease to impress me with their creative abilities!!! :)


  1. I love these! In fact, I too, would love to buy one from you. So... How much do you charge?!? :) Sounds like this would be a great addition to your Etsy store / craft show!

  2. Fantastic! I love them! Are you going to do a tutorial or a pattern?

  3. Because I live sooo far away from you, I would love a pattern og directions for making my own one :) It is SO beautifull <3 What do you stuff the pincushion with?

  4. I would also like a pattern and directions for making my own. Yours are the CUTEST I have seen!!!

  5. These are perfect! Would love a pattern/tutorial for them!

  6. Is there a pattern for these somewhere?


I LOVE your comments, and read them all! Thank you! :)
