I can't rely on my memory anymore!

 
I found a cute fabric at a local fabric chain store, and thought it would be fun to make up some 'ort' catchers for a few friends. 
 
 
UBI (useless bit of information): An Ort is the little snippet of thread left over or tiny fabric scraps, according to Wikipedia and Dictionary.com.  I had no idea these were called Orts until I went surfing for these triangular thread catchers.  For more information, there is a great article here.
 
I found the tutorial I was looking for at Needling Things blog, by Edna, another fellow Canadian. I read through it and quickly determined I could get at least 4 from 2 pieces of 10" wide fabric - no problem, I remember that part when I bought the fabric.
 
I followed the directions and cut out 4 - 10" squares of each fabric, and cut out the triangles.  And then I went to bed.
 
Yesterday, I made the triangles and topstiched them.  And then my memory failed me:
 
 
This is one heck of a big thread catcher! And how come I can only get one when I was supposed to get four?
 
That should teach me not to rely on my memory and re-read the instructions.  It took me a few minutes to figure them out (I'm not sure why I was slow), but one triangle makes one threadcatcher - duh!
 
Now all I have to do is sew on the buttons.  Tonight I have these two little cuties so I'll be able to get it done after the baby is in bed!
