Friday night was Material Girls at Pins & Needles. After a delicious dinner & show-n-tell, we made thread catchers. The pattern was from Red Hen Fabrics.
We made two changes to the pattern: cutting the cardboard circles and batting at 4" instead of 3 7/8" (cut your fabric circles at 5") and substituting package strapping for the 4” wooden embroidery hoop. Here is how to do that.
Cut the strap approximately 3/8" beyond the mark. Cut a second piece of strapping the same length as the first.
Keeping the second strap snug against the first, securely tape one end of the outside ring in place.
Til next time,
