This is the perfect answer to those little piles of thread that are always around when you're doing your needlework! As you cut off that extra piece of thread, you just put it in this catcher and your work area stays neat. It's made of cotton blend material and has no stiff surfaces so catcher will stay wherever it's put. I have made these thread catchers for years and have had requests to make a larger one. So I have made a larger thread catcher for those bigger projects. Each side of the triangle is 6 inches long at the base and the catcher is 3" high. Buttons are hand sewn. Machine wash and dry. It was made in my smoke free home. The color in the picture didn't turn out very well but the inside is purple. Thank you for looking.
