Item details

New! I am now offering a PRINT COPY of the Dreamy Dresden Thread Catcher Pattern.

Say good-bye to all of those messy threads, clippings and cuttings that are generated while in creative mode. What would likely hit the floor will now have it's own tidy little landing place. My Dreamy Dresden Thread Catcher is a pincushion and a trash bag all in one! How clever is that? Oh, and don't forget the handy little scissor holder, too!

This tutorial style Pattern comes to you printed in black and white with a full color cover. The pattern includes easy to follow, detailed tutorial style instructions along with 38 photographs illustrating the steps along the way. Materials and Supplies needed are listed on the back. There are also fabric cutting instructions, tips and hints. Packaged in a reusable zip top bag.

Convo me if you wish to purchase the pattern and supply kit together. I can ship both for the cost of shipping a supply kit.

This printed tutorial style pattern, much easier to make than you might think, features clear and concise directions with 58 photographs of the various steps along the way. There are also hints and tips.

This little beauty sits perfectly poised to the right or left of the work surface or on the arm of your favorite chair, ready to receive threads, cuttings and clippings. It features a detachable pincushion for those times when you need pins, but not the receptacle bag.

The Dresden block pincushion goes together much faster and easier than you might expect, and the end result is SO incredibly pretty!

The weighted base of the pincushion is a fabric covered ceramic tile with non-skid rug backing applied to the underside fabric, allowing the tile to sit firmly on the work surface.

The pincushion measures 5" x 5" x 2" and attaches to a fabric covered tile by strips of hook and loop tape. Fill the pincushion with crushed walnut shells or the filling of your choice that will give the pincushion a bit of heft for stability.

The bag measures 5 3/4 inches tall and is 5 1/2 inches across. It has boning inserted in the top cuff to keep the bag open at all times and features a contrasting trim strip where the cuff meets the bag. Add the optional scissors tab to keep your scissors always within reach.

Basic sewing skills are needed.

The pattern includes easy to follow, detailed tutorial style instructions along with 38 photographs illustrating the steps along the way. There are also fabric cutting instructions, tips and hints.

These items make great gifts for anyone who sews, quilts, scrapbooks, does bead work or any other activity that produces clippings or cuttings.

You may wish to purchase the Dreamy Dresden Thread Catcher Pattern/Supply Kit Combo or the single Supply Kit, both available here in my shop.

The thread catcher is portable and travels nicely to classes and workshops. It can even be used in the car when doing handwork on the road, (as a passenger... of course!) . Just take off the pincushion and slip the tile into the opening in the arm rest.

Bet you can't make just one...

Materials and Supplies needed are:

• Outside Bag Fabric - (1) Fat Quarter
• Bag lining, ceramic tile cover, hanging tab, scissors tab - (1) Fat Quarter
• Contrasting Trim Strip Fabric – 1 7/8” x 18”
• 20 Coordinating small scraps for pincushion
• Thread to match fabrics
• Ceramic tile – (1) 4" x 4" tile (available at hardware stores, Home Depot, Lowe’s)
• Heavyweight Sew-In Interfacing
• Boning
• Two squares of lightweight fusible interfacing
• Two pieces of Hook and Loop Tape, ¾ inch or 1 inch wide (such as Velcro)
• Crushed Walnut Shells for pincushion or the filling of your choice.
• Piece of non-slip shelf liner (such as Rubbermaid Grip-It Shelf and Drawer Liner)
• Scraps of cotton batting - Warm and Natural type
• Water Soluble or Disappearing Ink Marking Pen
• Ruler – A small clear acrylic quilting ruler works well
• Tacky Glue or other craft glue.
• small scrap for yo-yo
• One (1) button for the center of the yo-yo

A rotary cutter, clear ruler and cutting mat are helpful tools in cutting out the pattern pieces.

A Supply Kit for this pattern is offered here at Curry Bungalow with a slight discount given if you purchase both the pattern and the kit as a COMBO at the same time.

Remember, you are purchasing a printed copy of this pattern ONLY, not the finished product.

I was so excited to find this Printed Pattern for this most beautiful Dresden pincushion and thread catcher! I do not do well when downloading patterns, even when my printer is working. I was astounded at the numerous pages & pictures, the minute detailed explanations and the fact that the package arrived so fast I had to wait to leave feedback. Teri from Curry Bungalow made this pattern is so clear I would use it in a class or club setting because the newest novice would be sure to succeed using it. Highest recommendation possible without hesitation or reservation!!
