So a few days ago I shared my relatively new addiction for winding embroidery floss onto plastic bobbins. Today I want to share some photos of more unique bobbins.
In my quest for the best Embroidery Floss Organization System, I ran across some very creative, organized people who had wound their trims onto larger bobbins (larger than the small embroidery floss bobbins that I am using at present).
Most of these images I found on Etsy, because they are primarily hand made. IF you know the photographer or website from which I found one of these pictures, PLEASE tell me. I DO want to give proper attribution.
Is there a machine for the scrapbooking hobby that lets one cut out repetative shapes from thicker paper...board stock like these?
This one above was apparently printed and then cut out. I love the whimsey of these.
One seller on Etsy had some delightful animal shaped bobbins (the next three pictures). I *think* they were cut out of some thin wood-based stock and then burnished.
The pictures following are probably are cut f rom a dense paper-based board, heavier than "card stock". If you know, please let me know.
Then these next pictures of creative bobbins appear to be a stained wood?
There are more creative bobbin ideas to share with you, but this is a nice place for a bookmark. I'll share the other ideas next time. If you have an idea for some pretty bobbins for storing one's laces, trims, floss, ribbon, etc...please share!
