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 is too adorable for words! That's a great idea and would be a great gift for a crafter.

OH MY GOSH! Those are the cutest things ever. I'm doing the Rocky Horror Picture Show swap, and I think those would be a great idea for a partner who does embroidery....hmm.. .
