I made this little thread holder to use in my Felt Monster Sewing Kit, however I realized that it would also work really well as a stand alone item. It is small enough to fit in your wallet or almost anywhere. Now it will be easy to sew a loose button back onto your clothing or fix a seam.
- mini craft sticks (Woodsies 2 1/2" x 3/8" x 1/12")
- hot glue gun
- sewing needle
- Take two mini craft sticks and apply a small amount of hot glue to the middle of one stick. Then adhere the sticks together. Be sure to press them together firmly so that there isn't much of a gap between them.
- Cut a narrow strip of felt long enough to wrap around the middle of the sticks. Apply a small amount of glue and adhere the end of the felt, wrap it around the sticks and glue it in place, trimming off any excess felt.
- Slip the end of the thread in between the two sticks, then begin wrapping the thread around. Once you have a good amount of thread on the sticks, cut it loose from the spool. Now slide the loose end in between the sticks to keep it from unraveling.
- Repeat on the other end with another color of thread.
- The felt strip around the middle is the perfect place to store a spare needle. After inserting the needle through the felt, simply nestle the tip of the needle into the thread to keep it from poking you unexpectedly.
