Well, technically, it's a trash container. But "Thread Catcher," sounds more fun! ...or CD holder... or remote holder... or riding-in-the-car project holder. You have my permission to use it for anything you want. They are quick and fun to make, and they make a great gift for your crafty friends. With a little imagination, you can even personalize each one. The pattern also includes inner and outer pockets, and a 6-inch Churndash block that you can use for the top of the pincushion. If you are unable to purchase this pattern through Craftsy, it is also available on Etsy at this link. https://www.etsy.com/shop/quiltedsunshine?ref=l2-shopheader-name SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS pincushion 6" square; bag 6" X 6" X 2"
