While my India fabric is waiting for some project ideas to marinate, I couldn’t resist snipping a few small pieces to use in a threadcatcher I noticed in @mtweedel’s feed last week. Now whenever I clip a thread, I’ll be reminded of my wonderful trip! Thanks to @thesewingchick for the fun and clearly written tutorial she shares on her blog. Using cotton duck as a foundation is genius! (The perfect lining is an early @alisonglass fabric ~ the value of a deep stash!) #quiltersofinstagram #threadcatcher #sewingchickthreadcatcher #freetutorial
I've had a ton of fun this weekend just being in my studio and sewing little things. I've tried a few different patterns for storage buckets and boxes. This one is my favourite, a labour of love with the piecing and quilting but so cute. I added the ties so I can attach it to my drawer and put my threads in it. Used up some @amybutlerdesign scraps and some recycled denim. Pattern by @thesewingchick #sewing #sewingroom #studio #sewingmachine #handmade
I still have some Liberty scraps left, so I used them to make a gorgeous thread catcher . I used mostly @thesewingchick "tutorial -- Quilt-as-you-go Thread Catcher". But I had to finish the lining on my own way because I made an error by cutting the fabrics I only had a few left to the wrong size , so I needed to bind the raw edges instead which was good to me actually as I had a good chance to practice more on hand sewing. I enjoyed doing it so far and started liking it
I'm so happy now having the most beautiful Liberty #threadcatcher next to my sewing machine . What a wonderful make! Why I wait for so long to do this?!?!?
BTW, the #EssexYarnDyedLinen fabric in Pickle & the lining made me thinking ofSpring & Cherry blossoms season already...too much snow this year! .

P.S.: My mom did the hexies in background!

I finally took the time to make up a couple of these quilt as you go thread catcher baskets from #thesewingchick tutorial. I used Essex Linen in charcoal and some scraps from my Red Pepper style quilt projects. I love these and they were so much fun to make. #sewingchickthreadcatcher #sewingproject #quilting#sewingfun#useyourscraps
These are such great little gifts!

It warms my heart to see all the #sewingchickthreadcatcher baskets being made for Christmas gifts, but this lovely stack by @kathylooi55 takes the cake!! She used coveted fabrics from @frenchgeneral The tutorial is on my blog (link to blog is in my profile, click the tutorials tab).
I needed a couple of quick projects and really wanted to sew something in The Good Life (I this line!) so I made a @noodlehead531 Divided Basket and a @thesewingchick Thread Catcher. Both such fun projects, perfect for getting some of my sewjo back!
Fabric is Bonnie and Camille The Good Life and Moda Cross Weave in Black

Fabric baskets are definitely one of my favourite things, so I had to make one for my partner, and of course one has to be for me! #favoritethingssewingswap #threadcatcherbasket #bunniesandcreamfabric The tutorial from @thesewingchick is fab! #fabricbasket #ftssteamwonkystar #sewingchickthreadcatcher
Here is a little rainbow to brighten your Monday #swapteamdinky partner how about this #threadcatcher ??? I used some #artgalleryfabrics #alisonglass #sunprint #essexlinen and for quilting I used some variegated #sulkythreads #thelittlethingsswap2017 #sewingchickthreadcatcher #sewing #quilting #makemodern #zsofiamadethis
I made this cute little thread catcher basket as an extra for one of the swaps I took part in. One of the best tutorials I've used, by @thesewingchick. We will be swapping baskets at #FVMQG in September, and from the response we will have a table overflowing with baskets!

Not my work! Here is my mosaic for the #thelittlethingsswap2017. I love little self drafted zipper pouches, boxy pouches, headphone wraps, key fobs, lanyards...so many fun little things! The thread catcher is at the top of my list, but above all, just have fun! Can't wait to see what you make. Makers' IG handles are all included in the mosaic. #sewingchickthreadcatcher #quiltedminitabletcase #swapteamdinky #zipuptraypouch
This #threadcatcher has been on my to-sew-list for quite some time. The wonderful pattern is by @thesewingchick and I used #hazelwoodfabric by @1canoe2 and #essexlinen in steel.

#makerstoteswap waiting for my zips & soft & stable to arrive so I made a little extra for my partner, oops I made two so I might have to keep one...started out with the idea of a thread catcher with pincushion but this little basket is not so little!! Loving some of these fabrics which would not be my usual picks! #sewingchickthreadcatcher
Anyone else struggle like me to limit technology, especially mobile phone, use in the home with teenagers, husbands & even myself at times?! So I've made a little basket for everyone to pop their phone in for dinner & social times & at nighttime...even if helps just a little...plus it's pretty!! Pattern adapted from thread catcher pattern @thesewingchick #sewingchickthreadcatcher
Made a cute little scrap and thread catcher with inspiration from @jackiepadeskyquilts. The pattern is free from @thesewingchick and it is called the Quilt-as-you-go Thread Catcher. A great pattern and fun to make. I made it with scraps leftover from the Carry-all pincushion by @noodlehead531 I made last year. Swipe to see both. Pretty things for my sewing room #bonnieandcamille #sewingchickthreadcatcher
