Pincushion Thread catcher Tutorial
Supplies needed:Play sand (approx. 3-4 cups) and a funnel2 coordinating FQ's fabric(2)5 1/2" squares of muslin (or you can use scraps, this is fothe sand bag itself, so thefabric must be tightly woven)(2) 1 1/4" pieces (both sides) of hook/loop tape18" strapping (that comes off big packages, check a retail storeto see if they have any inthe shipping dept.)Cutting directions:From 1 FQ--cut a 9 1/2" x 18" rectangle (for outer bag)cut a 2" x 8" rectangle for strapsFrom 2nd FQ--cut a 9 1/2" x 18" rectangle (for bag lining)cut (2) 6" squares for pincushion cover (NOTE: if you want to add any custom embroidery on the cover,NOW is the time to do it.You could even make a 6" paper pieced pattern to make it more"yours")1. Sew the muslin squares together all the way around with a1/4" seam, leaving a 1" opening on the top side to add thesand. Clip corners. Turn right side out. Add sand to desiredfullness. Close the opening by hand stitching very smallstitches. Don't try this on your machine!(EDITORS NOTE:Someone asked me why I bothered turning this inside out asit didn't show at all. Hmmm. Maybe they are right. The onlything I could think was that maybe turning it inside made itstronger? You be the judge--turn it inside out if you want ....or not!)
2. Fold the 2" x 8" rectangle in half lengthwise and press a crease.Open, and then fold one side tomeet the crease and the other side should fold over and overlap just slightly. Stitch down bothsides, close to the folded edge.3. Cut the strip in half to yield2 pieces.4. Lay one of the 6" pincushion cover squares down, RIGHT SIDE UP. Layone of the tabs on the bottom edge 1"in from the side. Repeat for the other side. Make sure the tab is laying onthe square RIGHT SIDE down. Pin inplace.5. Lay the other 6" square on top,RIGHT SIDES together. Sew allthe way around, with a 1/4" seamallowance, leaving a very largeopening on the top edge (to insertthe sand bag). Turn right sidesout.
6. Fold up approx. 1" on the wrong sideof the raw edge of each tab. Stitch therough side (hook side) of the hook andloop tape to the WRONG side of the tab.Repeat for other tab.
