In one of my recent blog posts a few people mentioned the Wonder Clips I used to hold my binding in place when I machine sew it on (they would be great for holding it in place if you hand stitch it as well).
I thought I’d share another recent “find” that has made my quilting life a little easier. How do you store your bobbins? Sadly, I’ve been storing mine wrapped with my daughters’ hair ties and tossed in an old cigar box.
Seriously, I had no idea what colors or how many bobbins I had jumbled in there!
While we were on vacation some new toys from Nancy’s Notions arrived and I tried out my new bobbin boxes this morning. Wow, what a difference these little cases make! I can actually tell what color thread I have on my bobbins and can tuck the little thread tails under the bobbin so I don’t get any tangles while they’re stored. I wish I had found these a few years ago!
I’ve seen a few different bobbin storage ideas but this was the first that looked like it would work for me. The two boxes were $9.99 for a set and totally worth it!
