Finish Friday……

I can’t believe but I managed to get June’s project done just in the nick of time !

Remember this block I stitched in March ???redwork

I turned it into the cover of my thread case….

Thread case 1

Here is my Thread case opened … is 10” X 48” ( 25cm x 122cm) ……a total of 8 pockets

Thread case 2

…here it is filled with threads ! Like a box of Crayola crayons!

Thread case 6

These are my favorite threads for hand applique….Mettler 60/2 or YLI silk threads. Do you notice the Ultrasuede strip along the bottom of the zipper…the threads are pulled through it …this way you don't have to take the spool out of the pocket every time you need a color…cool  uh!!

pocket 1

old silk threads….

pocket 2

Sorry for the glare but that’s comes from the plastic pocket.


pocket 4

That’s my thread case filled with all my favorite colors…when not in use it folds up nicely….closing…..

Thread case 7


Thread case 8

almost done…. I think I will add a small needle case to the top flap …but I’m saving that for Augusts SAL…

Thread case 9

….Da Da !! My Thread Case is done! I think the redwork block is perfect for the case ! “Langes Fädchen…faules Mädchen”

Thread case 3

Here's a close up of my closure….

Thread case 4

I hope you liked my thread case…I love it!! I am pleased with how it turned out. I have been wanting a case like this for years…don’t know why I never made one before…it wasn’t that hard after all!

How's your Thread case coming along ??

You still have till Sunday to send me in your pictures…Come on …you can do it…off to your machines!
