Neat Pin Cushion/Thread Catcher

I made this little project for a gift exchange for our guild. It sewed together quickly and easily. It’s by Elizabeth Hartman for Sew, Mama, Sew.

I found the pattern and tutorial here. I used uncooked rice and a couple of heavy washers to weight it down.

It should fit nicely right in front of a sewing machine.  I’m always losing my scissors and seam ripper, among other things. I hope the recipient likes bright colors. I do.


About ladybelle

I'm a wife, mother and grandmother and I love to make things, especially sock monkeys. They're great for all kinds of gifts, birthdays, baby showers, etc. Kids love them and so do adults!! I've made many football players, including Peyton Manning, Tony Romo and Tom Brady, and character monkeys like Rainbow Brite and the Grinch. Look at some of my favorites and email me with your requests at
