Got Batiks?

I've been playing around with the few batik fabrics from my stash.  I felt that my Sew Sassy Thread Catcher Pattern would make up really nicely with these fabrics and I wanted a Thread Catcher option that was a little more simplistic, less cute.  I don't generally work with batiks, but that's not to say that I don't like them.  Some of my quilting friends work exclusively with these fabrics and I drool a little bit when I see how beautifully they combine colors.

Batiks are lovely to work with.  They have a bit more body and a tighter weave than the usual quilting fabrics and they hold a crease like nothing else that I have sewn on.  I love the vibrant colors and subtle patterns.

I used a large covered button for the center of the pincushion.  Perfect!  For those of you who "don't do FLORAL", and you know who you are... this is the thread catcher for you!  My Sew Sassy Thread Catcher Pattern is available for download from my shops on Etsy and Craftsy  Just search "Sew Sassy Thread Catcher".
