This listing is for a PDF (print-at-home) sewing pattern to make our very popular Thread Catcher!

Squirmy Worm Studio’s Thread Catchers are a must have accessory for any Seamstress, Quilter, Scrapbooker, Knitter, Crocheter, and/or Jeweler!

The Thread Catcher consists of a weighted bag/pincushion with non-slip grip, enabling it to sit (and stay!) on the table, serving as a great portable trash bag for your favorite Seamstress/Crafter! If you're a Knitter or Crocheter, the Thread Catcher can be placed over the arm of your favorite chair and used to hold your skein of yarn!

The Thread Catcher approximately measures 14" long, with the bag measuring 8" tall x 5.5" in diameter, with a 2.5" boxed bottom. The bag is constructed with boning, enabling the bag to always remain open and ready for your scraps!
