2 Construction Notes: Please read entire pattern before commencing the project. All seam allowances are ½, unless stated otherwise. Seams can be pressed either open or to the darkest fabric. When drawing line markings on fabric use a fabric pen or chalk. Thread Catcher: 1. Take the 9 x 11¾ rectangle and with right sides together join it along the 9 side to the 9 x 2 feature fabric rectangle. Press seam towards the feature fabric. 2. Take the 9 x 2¼ exterior rectangle and join it, right sides together, to the 9 side of the feature fabric. Press seam towards the feature fabric. You should have a panel that goes linen, feature fabric, linen. This is your exterior panel. 3. With right sides together, fold your exterior panel in half, matching the short edges. Use a ½ seam to close both ends, stitching from the fold out towards the opposite edge from the fold. Repeat with the 9 x 14 lining panel. 4. Clip the corners (near the fold) and press side seams open. Repeat with the lining. 5. Open up the exterior bag and squash the sides together to make a point at one of the clipped corners. Mark 1 ½ from the corner point with fabric pencil and draw a line perpendicular to the seam. 6. Stitch along the line you have drawn. Use your ruler to mark a ¼ seam allowance on the side of the stitching line closest to the corner and trim the excess to make a box corner. Repeat with the other corner. 7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 with the lining bag. 8. Place the bottoms of the bags together, matching the box seams and baste stitch in the seam allowance for each corner. This will hold the exterior and the lining in place during use. 9. Turn the bags inside out so that the right side of the exterior bag is on the outside and the right side of the lining is on the inside. You may want to baste the top raw edges of the exterior and the lining together to assist you with the assembly. 10. Iron 1 x 2½ x 17 interfacing to the wrong side of the 2½ x 17 (facing) rectangle as per interfacing instructions. 11. With right sides together fold the 2½ x 17 rectangle in half matching shortest edges together. Join along shortest edges with a ½ seam to create a loop. Press seam open. 12. Turn the bottom edge of the facing loop up (wrong sides will touch) by ½ to create a hem. Press hem. 13. With right sides touching, fit the facing loop over the outside of the thread catcher. The facing loop s hem will be parallel to the bottom of the thread catcher and the unhemmed edge of the facing loop will align with the top of the thread catcher bag. For a neater appearance line up the facing loop seam with one of the side seams of the thread catcher bag. Pin and then stitch in place.

3 14. Turn the facing loop to the inside of the thread catcher bag and press. Stitch the facing loop 1/8 from the bottom of the hem to secure it in place. 15. The feature fabric strip will be on the front of your bag. Attach one side of the magnetic clasp to the back of the thread catcher, the clasp will need to be centred between the top of the thread catcher and the hem line of the facing. The magnetic clasp will be on the exterior of the thread catcher with its prongs and washer on the inside of the thread catcher. (see image below to confirm placement prongs have been covered with button.) See pincushion method for tips on attaching magnetic clasps. Pin Cushion: 1. Adhere interfacing to the wrong side of one of the 3¾ squares as per the interfacing instructions. 2. Take one 3¾ square and mark a dot a quarter of an inch in from each corner on the wrong side of the fabric. Repeat for the other 3¾ square. 16. Once magnetic clasp is secured, cover the prongs and washer by stitching in place the decorative button. Be sure to securely attach the button, as it will be under constant wear and tear. You may also like to use hobby glue to add additional strength to the button. 17. The thread catcher is complete and can be used attached or unattached to the organiser. 3. On the wrong side of the 13½ x 1½ rectangle, ¼ from the longest edge place a dot at the 1⅞, 5⅛, 8 ⅝ and 11⅞ point. Repeat for the other longest side of the rectangle. Carefully clip ⅛ from the edge to each dot (this will allow the fabric to stretch into the corners of the pincushion). 4. Fold the 13½ x 1½ rectangle in half with right sides together and matching the shortest edges together. Join the shortest edges with a quarter inch seam. Be sure to back stitch and secure your stitches at the start and end. Press seam open. 5. Take the 3 ¾ square with the interfacing on it and mark the centre point (it will be 1⅞ in from the side and 1-1⅞ in from the top or bottom). Use this centre point to attach the metal clasp as per the item instructions.

4 Tip: The metal closure pictured has 2 parts consisting of either a male or female closure coupled with a round washer. Separate the male and female parts of the closure and attach one of these to the square that will be the underside of your pincushion. To do this use the round washer centred on the middle dot to mark snip lines (as pictured). Carefully snip the lines and fit the prongs of the closure through the snip marks on the right side of the fabric. 6. With right sides together, pin the rectangle to the pincushion top (the square without the metallic clasp), centring the rectangle seam on one edge and aligning the dots at the corners. Each clip in the end of rectangle will align with a corner of the top square. Using a quarter inch seam stitch the rectangle to the square top. Be sure to secure the start and finish of your seam and do not stitch into the gap left by the snips. Tip: use a pin to match the dots on the rectangle to the dots in the corners of your square (as pictured please note the rectangle is lined up on the wrong side of the square, the fabric should be right sides together). The closure will be visible on the right side of the square. Slide the washer over the prongs on the wrong side of the fabric and fold the prongs down to secure the closure. You can always add a couple of fabric squares between the wrong side of the square and the washer to reinforce this point as it may get a lot of wear, however the interfacing should be enough to help with this. 7. With right sides together, pin the rectangle to the pin cushion bottom square (the square with the interfacing and metal clasp), centring the rectangle seam on one edge and aligning dots with the corners. Start stitching ¾ from rectangle seam (remember to secure your seam) and continue sewing pincushion to bottom square as per step 6 until you come within ¾ of band seam (remember to secure your seam). You will need to leave a gap for turning.

5 8. Turn pincushion right sides out, being carefully of the metallic clasp. Find the middle of your top square and stitch your decorative button to this spot. 9. Stuff your pincushion with your chosen fill until moderately filled to your liking. Be gentle when stuffing corners to prevent the stitches unravelling or the fabric fraying. 10. Using small stitches, slip-stitch the turning open closed. Be sure to knot and secure the thread to prevent the seam coming open. 11. The pincushion is complete and can be used attached or unattached to the organiser. Organiser: 1. Take the 5 x 5½ rectangle and fold over (right side to wrong side) one of the short edges ½ to make a hem. Stitch the hem in place. Press. This is the tile pocket. 5. On the wrong side of the 5 x 12 interfaced rectangle mark a line 5 from the shortest edge. Draw a diagonal line from one corner to the other corner, and repeat for the other corners. As per diagram. 2. Take one of the 5 x 12 rectangles and adhere the 5 x 12 interfacing to the wrong side of the rectangle as per interfacing instructions. 3. Take the 5 x 4 rectangle and adhere the 5 x 3½ interfacing to the wrong side of the fabric as per interfacing instructions. Line up one 5 edge of the interfacing to one of the 5 edges of the exterior fabric, this is so that you can fold the edge without interfacing over to make a hem. 4. Fold the 5 edge without interfacing on it down ½ to make a hem. Stitch in place. Press. This is the utensils pocket. 6. Use the centre point (where the lines intersect) to attach the other half of the pincushion magnetic clasp as per its instructions to the right side of the fabric. (See pincushion method for tips on attaching magnetic clasp).

6 7. On the utensils pocket mark a dot 1 from the bottom and 1½ in from the side of the bottom left hand corner (the bottom is the unhemmed edge) on the right side of the fabric. Use this dot to mark the clip lines for attaching the magnetic clasp. (See diagram for confirmation). 19. Carefully clip all four lines. Put attach the magnetic clasp prongs through both layers as per its instructions. The magnetic clasp will not secure the utensils pocket to the main panel of the organiser to allow for stitching in place. 10. Stitch a vertical line ½ distance from magnetic clasp from the bottom of the pocket to ¼ above the pocket hemline. Backstitch at the start and the end to secure threads and to help prevent tearing with use. 11. Stitch a horizontal line ½ distance above the magnetic clasp from the left hand side of the pocket to the centre stitch line. Backstitch at the start and the end to secure threads and to help prevent tearing with use. See diagram to confirm placement. 8. On the 5 x 12 interfaced rectangle mark a dot 1 from the bottom and 1½ in from the side of the left hand corner opposite the end with the pincushion clasp attached on the right side of the fabric. Use this dot to mark the clip lines for attaching the magnetic clasp. (See next diagram to confirm correct placement of clasps).

7 12. Take the 5 x 12 non-interfaced rectangle and baste the tile pocket to the shortest edge at the top of the rectangle on the right side of the fabric. See next image for confirmation of placement. 13. With right sides together stitch the two large rectangles together, leaving a 3 gap on one side for turning. Be sure to backstitch the start and end of the seam stitches so they do not pull apart when turning the project right sides out. 14. Turn project right sides out and press. Neatly slip-stitch, or top stitch, the turning gap closed. Press. 15. Slid the ceramic tile into the tile pocket at the top of the organiser. This will act as a counter weight to help keep your organiser in place. Using the metal clasps attach the pincushion and thread catcher.
