We had shrimp one night and I was thinking  Huh about ways to store my sewing bobbins that night and lo and behold............. ...shrimp tray turned into a bobbin & pin tray!!  The bobbins fit snug and can easily pop out--thread stays intact.  Don't have a pin bowl?  Put a magnet underneath the middle and it will hold your pins without the tray.  The cover fits over it perfectly and will protect your bobbins and pins from dust.

For the cost  Shocked of that shrimp, I thought, I better be able to use this tray for something.  Hope it helps someone out!!  Grin

Wow!  This is super fantastic.  That tray looks like it's made for bobbins.  Fantastic idea.  I store mine on  little boards with dowels in them.  This is so much better.  I'm seriously going to keep my eyes open next time I'm in the grocery store.
Great job.

WOW!  Great job!!  I love it how it turned out.  And I love even more that you can look at an empty try of shrimp and think this up!
