First off. Welcome to my new followers :) Thank you so much for joining me on my wonky journey!
What did I try today? I decided to play with the sewing machine for a bit and some scraps of fabric I had left over - I've seen those cute fabric triangle ort / thread catchers that were popular to make awhile back so I thought what the heck - I'd give it a go.
Here's the tutorial I used: Triangle Ort Thread Catcher Instructions are very clear and look easy enough.
Thoughts on results:
- Admittedly, I am not an expert sewer, especially with triangles - need to practice more.
- Feel it needs to be of a larger size for home use - pattern size is good for traveling - or I've got fat fingers.
- Understand the need to reinforce corners but felt it was a bit overkill. Did this every time I came to a corner, whether inside out or right-side out. Of course, she suggested rounded corners when you first sew - and I am not comfortable with doing that.
So here it is:
My camera is being a brat and making a burgundy-colored thread catcher with pearlized buttons look washed out.
Maybe I could put it over my nose and have a side-show as a clown or wear it as a funny hat.
