A Thread Catcher That's The Cat's Meow

I keep a small waste basket under my sewing table but I always seem to be trimming off threads while at my ironing board (which isn't next to my sewing table right now). So, what's a girl to do? Make a cute thread catcher with some adorable novelty cat fabric, of course!

I'd seen various thread catchers for sale on Etsy but I knew I could make one and found this tutorial at the Polka Dot Apron. It comes together very quickly - less than 2 hours total. Time well spent to brighten up my sewing room!
