I made this cool project as part of the Winterkist Blog Hop to celebrate Monica Solorio-Snow‘s new fabric with Lecien! Check out the blog hop link for details on how you can win some awesome prizes, it’s as easy as leaving a comment!!
The instructions only call for interfacing the loop on the thread catcher and the facing on the thread catcher bag, but I’m a bit of an interfacing freak, so I used Pellon SF-101 fusible woven interfacing on everything. You can read more of my thoughts on interfacing here.
The pincushion is actually filled with a satchet of uncooked rice. The pattern calls for flannel for the rice satchet, but I didn’t have any around, so I just used a small piece of Pellon batting instead.
I really love this tutorial…Elizabeth really has thought of everything. It also has a nice pocket organizer to hold all your small notions that I use all the time (like my seam ripper and my fabric marker!). The thread catcher has a little button on the inside, so you can easily remove it from the organizer and dump out all of your little scraps and threads.
