Sewing Room Tip: Tee-Up Your Bobbins!
Lazies, We all struggle with it. We chase them, lose them, and even run out of them. Sometimes it can be like wrangling critters. What am I talking about? Bobbin management. I’ve tried a lot of things over the years to manage my bobbins. I like to keep the bobbin with the spool. Currently, I’m testing some fun colored golf tees.
Simply slide the tee through the bobbin. Picking a tee color is part of the fun.
Top of the Bobbin, To Ya!
Place the bobbin/tee atop the spool.
Because my bobbin thread shows on my projects, I use the same spool color in the bobbin. That means I have a lot of bobbins hanging around.
One Size Fits All
I like that these tees fit my different machine bobbins and spools. They look like little people wearing awesome hats. As you can see, a crowd is gathering.
Where To Buy
I bought a bag of 100, in bright colors, available in Joan’s Essentials where you’ll find goodies I like and recommend.
Where do I store the extra tees? They are Sweetpea-perfect! Hello lovelies!
They also fit nicely in a Hang On. I like pairing different color tees and thread.
Patterns for the Sweetpea Pods and Hang On are available in our Digital Patterns here.
Consider bundling some tees with a Sweetpea or Hang On pattern to make a perfect gift for a stitchy friend. Or even better, make a few Sweetpeas and fill with a dozen tees to get a friend started with a little organization. For a special friend, add a pack of needles or bobbins for their machine.
Golf tees are an affordable, flexible, fun, pretty option for bobbin management. Give (or gift) it a try!
