January's Finished with Time to Spare! ;)

Hello!  :)

Yes I made it with days to spare!  ;)  I had planned on sitting down tonight and getting my thread catcher done and I did!  :)


As everyone's been saying it is very quick and easy. Here's a closer look at my thread catcher . . .


I used some fun sewing themed fabric on the outside and pink polka dots on the inside. I also used a decorative stitch at the top in brown thread. As you can tell it got messed up in the center. Oh well.  ;)  I had thought the brown thread would be a nice contrast but now I'm wishing I had used cream. Here's the other side . . .


I'm looking forward to making the True Friends Tote bag next month. Great choice Chooky!  :)  I can't wait to sit down and choose the fabrics I'll be using for it. I'm also eager to start on the stitching.

Until next time . . .
