I have decided to make a threadcatcher. I tend to keep loose bits in a horrid pile on my sewing table and it's so frustrating when the entire bundle manages to get picked up by whatever I'm working on and I fling bits all over the carpet.

I remember I used to make washbags years ago and would line them with something that was like a lightweight canvas weave waterproof fabric. My bin is currently fabric-lined and all the threads stick to it like mad so I want something that won't let the threads cling. Needs to be sizeable enough for a decent threadcatcher if you can imagine what that might look like.

I have some red ripstop if that would work for you?

Ooh that would work. How much do you have? I'm going to make a round thread catcher, not too huge.

I’ve got a 1x1.5m piece I use for bag repairs I probably need about 1/2, how much would suit your project?

If you don’t prefer orange? :)
