Gizmo To Keep The Matching Bobbin with the Spool

I was changing the thread on my machine and started thinking about a better way to keep the bobbin with the matching thread.

I came up with this easy-to-do idea and  thought I would share.


You will need:

Some elastic cord and  buttons with holes big enough for the cord to fit through. My spool used about 10 inches of cord.  



Thread the cord through the two holes in the button and tie the ends together in a knot.






Thread the cord through the spool and the bobbin and slip the end over the button.

This is awesome! I just saw your comment over on quilting gallery and love this idea!

I, like Melissa, just came over from Quilting Gallery.

This is genius! I store bobbins and spools together in baggies when I have colors that I would not readily be able to pull out of the bobbin case.

This method will be MUCH less consuming of the space in my carry case!

Thanks!
