Pincushion Thread Catcher

A weighted pincushion holds a thread catcher on the edge of your sewing desk. If you don’t want to use sand in the pincushion, you can weight the pincushion by inserting a few drapery weights in the bottom of the pincushion and filling with lizard litter, crushed walnuts hulls, or fiberfill.

Assemble Straps and Pincushion

1. With right sides together, fold a main print 2-1⁄2×5" rectangle in half lengthwise to make a 1-1⁄4×5" rectangle (Diagram 1). Using a 1⁄4" seam, sew together long edges to make a tube. Turn tube right side out. Centering seam in front, press tube flat to make a strap. Mark the center of the height of the strap. Repeat to make a second strap.

2. Referring to Diagram 2, place straps on right side of a main print 31⁄2×51⁄2" rectangle with center marks positioned as shown. Sew across each center mark several times to secure straps to rectangle.

3. Fold straps in half over stitching and press flat to make pincushion bottom (Diagram 3).

4. With right sides together, layer pincushion bottom with remaining main print 3-1⁄2×5-1⁄2" rectangle. Being careful to not catch straps in stitching and leaving a 2-1⁄2" opening in center of bottom edge, sew together on all edges (Diagram 4). Turn right side out to make pincushion body (Diagram 5).
