Well, almost in my case. I made the frame a bit too wide but I still like how it turned out.
When you don't need it, simply twist and push the bottom up and it's ready to be stored away. And it catches all the threads inside! It's also great to take with you in your sewing folder since it's does not take up too much room.
For the tin "coats", I sewn together long stripes of three different cottons. Then I cut them vertically and diagonally, turned some pieces around a bit and stitched them back again. Added buttons and elastic for an easy dressing up process.
Off I go now with my fancy thread catcher to do some tiny cross stitch embroidery. It feels like ages since I have done any really. I am not sure yet what I am going to use it for but I am simply going to enjoy fiddling with some embroidery floss and lovely German linen and of course I am going to use my thread catcher. :-) Have a wonderful day!
