So I have a bad habit of just leaving a pile of snipped threads near my sewing machine… generally they end up on the floor rather than a waste basket. I decided to make a thread catcher but I really didn’t want it to be in the way like many are. So I made this slide out one using screw eyes and a coat hanger attached to the underside of my table.
*** when sewing lining, just sew the first and last 1″ or 2, this will leave a big enough opening to turn and sew you boning on
sewing the corners will create a rectangular shape at the bottom of the bag
topstitch to keep your lining from pulling up
woohoo! Now that it is done, I realize that the bag flops partially down but that isn’t a problem. If you are looking for something that will stick straight out then you may want to make a casing or more tabs and attach the wire to the front and sides rather than the back.
One more piece of my fabric stash has been used!
