Every project has it.
The snips, the threads, the trimmings, the bit’n’pieces, the miniscule scraps.
For some, it is by the cutting table or sewing machine. For me, being a hand sewer, it is my my sewing spot.
I am in the midst of creating a new organized station box that can be functional when I need it and rolled away when we have company. For about two-thirds of the year it needs to work for straw millinery; the rest for my small projects. Both create quite a mess at times.
With this in mind, I finally made a thread & cutting collector.
Of course, I used my trusty FanU techniques.
Assembled, the catcher resembles a pyramid with its top chopped off.
So far, I am quote happy with it. The wider base helps keep the box from tipping over and let’s me squeeze lots little bits in.
I also made a holder for my pens and scissors. Right now it clips over the side of the box as it is on its side. I have yet to make up my mind whether the box will sit upright with a removable tray like lid, or on its side with some shelves added.
