What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use a pincushion filler that has a bit of weight to it (rice, silica sand). A little bit of shelf liner keeps the pincushion in place.

I have tried to check this out and also the other one and it is coming up 404. Any ideas - looking at trying to replace a catcher on my new overlocker. My old one had as standard and new one not and am very very sad, but this pattern looks like a possibility

FYI idea I added a ziplock bag to inside of my catcher and it's much easier to empty when threads are in it. One I made I didn't use ziplock and found threads quite often didn't come out easily hence ziplock when in doubt is my saying plus with ziplock i can throw my pins and snips inside to travel with and they don't get lost
