THREAD CATCHERS aka BOBBIN HOLDERS

After purchasing these cute 'sewing motif' fabrics on sale (60% off...woo hoo!) at a local quilt store, I couldn't wait to start creating some items for my 'sewing room' (which magically..thanks to our wall bed.. transforms back into our guest room when needed).  I found this cute tutorial for a 'thread catcher' here (thanks Edna!!!) but after making them (one for me and one for my quilting buddy) I decided it would be perfect for storing my empty bobbins rather than for 'catching my threads'. My quilting buddy loves hers and plans on using it the same way. So now I think a mug rug is in order.....just have to decide how I want to make it.
