I use a plastic box to store my machine threads in, which means I end up with bucketloads of bobbins rolling around carrying identical looking white thread – that is not identical!
Rather than risk the Dark Forces of Mechanical Wrath that ensue when the wrong thread is loaded into my usually sweet tempered sewing machine, I have spent a lot of time unwinding bobbins, and wasting oodles of thread.
Enter the bobbin-hugger, designed to keep a bobbin snuggly cuddled up to its mother-reel.
A button, a toothpick, two seedbeads and a bit of elastic is all you need. Oh, and some glue.
|The materials are almost as pleasing as the result.|
|It looks like a bit of an ugly duckling...|
|...but works perfectly (and looks a bit nicer in use.)|
