Came across this super inexpensive and clever idea on Pinterest showing an easy and neat way to store your bobbins using pedicure forms. So I went to the blog site, Manoa Road, to get further information.
Myself I have these plastic snap cases that I use and I do really like them because the bobbins are quick and easy to pull out and put back away ~~ especially since I seem to do this procedure one-handed. However, they tend to get messy with the threads having a mind of their own and they get stringy even in the case. So I thought I would give the pedicure forms a try!!
Now I didn’t actually go and buy anything at this point just used a couple of pedicure forms that I had on hand. Voila, it seems to work nicely and threads are all tucked away neatly but not sure if it is the way to go for me. As I mentioned earlier, I tend to grab and replace my bobbins using only one hand (probably why my threads get unruly but is a timesaving process for me and my sewing needs). This solution needs two hands to replace the bobbin back into the pedicure form. Also, my bobbins seem to make the form curve a bit ~~ not sure if my bobbins are larger/smaller or my forms are not new and maybe too soft and flexible. Brand new forms are probably a little sturdier and might not curve.
For me I’m not sure if I will change my current bobbin storage system, however, I still think this is a grand idea worth looking into and maybe will work for you and how you sew with your tools.
Hmm ~~ probably next time I am shopping I just might have to pick up a couple of new pedicure forms though!! Let me know if you have success with this idea 🙂
