Neat and Organized

I recently shared a pattern for a thread catcher over at the Moda Bake Shop. It’s a quick, fun little project that is finished without any sewing. I find it’s handy to bring around the house with me when I’m sewing binding or burying threads in my quilts or working on any other activity that results in piles of thread! The borders are also a handy spot to stick needles or wonder clips.

I had a bit of the fabric I used for the thread catcher left, and decided to make a matching pop up bin for my sewing area using this great pattern by the Fat Quarter Gypsy. The pattern was well written and resulted in a bin that is the perfect size to sit on my sewing table for the bits of trash I accumulate while sewing. I like that I can fold it down and throw it in my bag to bring to retreats or classes. 

Happy sewing!
