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.
