If you do any handwork at all, like the binding on a quilt, this little project is wonderful. It is a thread keeper for all those little bits you clip off. It makes a small triangular cup that you can drop those little bits into instead of getting them all over the floor. It is so easy, I made four of them in an hour. You take two equilateral triangles with 9 1/2 inch sides, sew right sides together, turn and topstitch. Then you fold the points to get a sewing line and zip the edges together. Fold down the points and secure with a button.
Here is the link for the instructions with pictures.
Easy, fun to make and can be embellished any way you want. I used buttons on two of them, and on one I used ribbon roses. I also made one bigger in Christmas colors with Christmas themed buttons. These worked up so fast! Great idea for scraps.
Anyone else have an insanely easy scrap project to share?
