Little Thread Keeper





Quite often I find myself putting all my cut off threads on the side of the couch when I am hand stitching. So I thought I would make myself a little thread keeper. I made the crazy patch block a few years back...one I had just done to practice crazy patch before I made the real one to go in a quilt! I have made this one fold up so it could also go in my handbag or craft bag.


I hope you are all have a great weekend!

Lisa you have to stop teasing us all with your wonderful patterns and start selling them for us to make too :):) it looks great and what a great idea mine end up on the arms of my chair then fall on the floor when my furry friend jumps up he often leaves wearing some :)

What a terrific use of that gorgeous little block. I'm so glad it's not sitting in a drawer or in the closet anymore = it deserves to be on display! 8)

Happy stitching,

What a pretty little thread catcher. It makes you want to sew, so that you can use it.
