What are you most proud of? I love the way it turned out! The finished product is very attractive and handy. Best of all, my mom loves it!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a great pattern for mixing prints, so choose some that make you smile. A lot of supplies are needed to make this (ceramic tile, pincushion filler, boning, velcro, interfacing, etc.) so I advise ordering the supply kit from Curry Bungalow's etsy store, at least for the first one. That way you don't have to go searching for all the supplies, and you can see exactly what you need, should you decide to make more (which I will).

Hello. Could I ask if you used a 1/4" seam on the strips for the pin cushion please? I have, but it's now too small to fit the backing fabric. I can't work out why this has gone wrong! Many thanks for your help.

Hi Melanie. I didn't piece the pincushion top. The print I used just makes it look that way. Could you add a strip or two to the end to make that piece a bit bigger?

Hi there. Thank you so much for replying so quickly. Yes I think I will add some more strips to the cushion or I may just cut one piece as you did for yours. Just wanted to work out where I had gone wrong. It's frustrating :-) Your finished thread catcher is fantastic - I love the fabric! Thank you again for your help. Melanie. X
