One of the shops had little cards with what they called Bobbin Bikinis attached to them. I thought to myself, "Why, how clever!" They are small stretchy bands that wrap around a bobbin and keep the thread in check. At 5 for $2.75, they were a bit pricey. Enter the dollar store!
After our shock and awe visit to IHop on Saturday, Cilla and I went shopping. Cilla needed some supplies for a class and me, well I never turn down a trip to the dollar store!
Strolling down the aisles to see if there was anything I could use, I spied these little hair bands. Cute, colorful and looking very much like the things I saw at the quilt shop! For a dollar! You would have thought it was Christmas! Cilla and I each bought a package.
As you can see, they fit perfectly on my bobbins. I knew they would. Now my bobbin drawer will never have another spider-web-tangle of thread. Ever! I am so happy. The package comes with sixty little bands. It makes me want to wind bobbins just so I can dress them up!
The next time you're in the dollar store, head to the hair aisle. You never know what useful thing you will find!
