    I use the little ponytail holders made for little girls (made from the stretchy stuff that come in different colors - don't know exactly what they are called). They are small enough to fit over the bobbin and can be color matched to the thread.

    I did see these at Walmart. They sell them at LQS where I go.

    Cool trick. Thanks for sharing. Is the 3/8" good for plastic bobbins?
    Or bobbin size doesn't really matter? I need to get me some as my
    bobbins are starting to get messy.

    wow, thanks for the tip! Will give it a try! I have been using the ponytail holders on mine, better than the tangles threads for sure!

    Thanks for the great info. I use small Rx containers too, but am always up for new ideas, especially when they make my workspace neater. :-) How very creative!

I went that same day to Lowe's and bought 3 feet of 3/8" plastic tubing, came home and cut it into pieces about 3/8". They work perfect around my bobbins, and they slide on and off very easily. My bobbins look so neat and organized now. :thumbup:
    What do you use to cut the plastic tubing into clean circles?
