Each time that I choose fabrics for a new thread catcher, I imagine how the fabrics will look alongside a sewing machine. Most times, the imaginary sewing machine is white, but sometimes I imagine a black machine, or even a red sewing machine. As I have mentioned previously, I have that Matchy-Matchy thing going on. I can't help it. That's how I am wired. I wonder what sort of machine this little cutie will sit beside...
I made a few of this design a couple of years ago but stopped selling them in my Etsy Shop, Curry Bungalow, because they were quite labor intensive with all of those little yo-yo's ringing the pincushion. Interestingly... this design is the most viewed sold item in my Etsy Shop with tons of views each day, coming from Pinterest, I suspect.
I recently had a custom order request for this design and made one up for my buyer. I found that making those little yo-yo's was kind of enjoyable! I can make enough for one pincushion in just over one hour of evening TV. And the wonder is that I am actually able to stay awake!
I've had a number of requests for the pattern. We'll see how these sell. I just might have to consider writing it!
