I love this idea, and the execution is so elegant. It's always tough to find a good way to keep and display little treasures like that. Nice job. Smiley

Thanks everyone!:D I'm waiting on repairs to my laptop actually, which should be done tomorrow or the next day. Then I'll be able to scan a template.

If anyone's interested, I can scan the shapes and post them as a reference.
That would be incredibly generous of you. I would love to see a template.
I hope you take this as a compliment because it's intended as such--your profile pic with the hair and the sunglasses reminds me of the Jenna Jameson character from Cry Baby Smiley
No sweat! I'm tickled that you guys like them so much.Smiley  And that's hilarious, but I definitely take it as a compliment.

I love it .. what's next panty pin cusions?
I could see a cute bacholerrete sewing box put together! how fun..  these are so marketable.. great idea!
That sounds extremely cute! Lots of possibilities there.

These are great!

Have you thought of making them out of shrink plastic? that would make them more durable.
Good call. Or even making them from regular plastic, like the lid from an ice cream container.

Thanks so much, guys! Cheesy  These would be super cute for a Rocky Horror swap! Maybe throw a couple of stiletto boots in there too. If anyone decides to try them, I've found that the bigger they are, the better. And it's best to make them fairly straight in the middle (even if it's a bit counterintuitive). If anyone's interested, I can scan the shapes and post them as a reference.

Oh wow! How did you make those?! I could really use something like this... my thread is a pure mess in a box lol!
I sketched the shape on regular paper first, then transferred it to card stock, cut it out and decorated it, punched a hole to put it on the rings, and a slit between the boobs to hold the end of the thread. That's it. Smiley

Awesome! What kind of paper do you use...I guess it has to be a bit thick?
Yes, I used heavy card stock (like a business card. Old file folders would work well too). One of the bobbins pictured is just made of sketchbook paper, and it's not nearly heavy enough.
36  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / "Unmentionable" Embroidery Thread Bobbins - Now with templates - pg. 5 on: July 20, 2008 06:07:51 PM
I've gotten mighty bored with making plain bobbins for my embroidery thread, so today I started making these. I think they're much cuter, even if they do take up a wee bit more space.



As you can see, it took a couple of tries to settle on a shape and size. I quickly got tired of drawing them individually, but I'm definitely planning on making more once I get my scanner and printer back online.

Thanks for looking!:)

ETA: For anyone who's interested in making some of their own, dancingrabbit has added links to some templates she made based on my photos above. See her post on page 5.

That's hysterical. And I would never have thought to try tinting with coloured pencils. Looks great!

I posted the first one of these awhile back, so I figured I'd post a couple more that I've made since.

Teal with vintage buttons (colours are more accurate in the second one):



Black and white striped, with a stem:


(Still needed some more blocking.)

Black with a bird applique:


And one made from a fuzzy white yarn, also with a stem:


Each one as nonfunctional as the last.Wink Thanks for looking!

Thanks, guys! Smiley  I have to say the tinting was really fun. I highly recommend it. I tried it on a couple of projects a few years ago, but haven't done it since. It seemed weird to do so little actual stitching, but it was very cool to experiment with different effects.

Super cute stuff. Does that magnet say "Screamy!"? That's fantastic.
