I have been making this cute little dizzy daisy pincushion and threadcatcher for my friends for years and they have been asking for the pattern. I added a Needlebook and Mini Pincushion for some cute bonus items to go with it. You use a threadcatcher to well…catch the threads and little snips and bits as you are sewing. It helps keep your sewing area neat and it is simple to carry to the trash can to empty it out when it is full. The little daisy on the attached pincushion is pretty and clever – you can park your needles here so they are easy to find.
I have several. One is perched on my sewing table next to my machine where it is handy but I won’t knock it off. I have one in my travel bag for sew-in days and retreats. And I have one to carry with me to my recliner. I have it hanging off the arm of the chair when I am doing hand sewing and watching tv. I like to think I am being productive while I watch my favorite shows.
I added this cute little Needle book too. I have several of these too. One for embroidery needles, one for applique needles, and one for quilting betweens. I even have a special one with my big eye needles for Big Stitch Quilting. It makes it easy to grab what you need for any project.
Use it for pins or regular needles too when you are sewing on your quilt binding if you do it by hand like me. I find it to be relaxing to do it by hand.
Finally, there is this tiny mini pincushion. It is a 3″ x 3″ 9 patch. I even tried to fussy cut the center square on this one.
This tiny size is easy to throw in a hand sewing bag or for a travel pincushion. It is so simple and quick to make. I stitched up a bunch of them for stocking stuffers this past Christmas. I think they would be a fun gift to make for your sewing group too.
Here is an example of another set I stitched up with a natural linen. I embellished the items with embroidery floss in a running stitch and some twill tape.
I even changed up the little pincushion but it is still a petite 3″ x 3″. Once you have the pattern, you can explore your own creativity to create something that is one of a kind.
Thanks for letting me share my new pattern with you.
