    I crocheted a lot of these spoolies. They take the place of the red felt rings on the vintage machines. I keep some in my class tote and give them to the ones in class who bring a vintage machine.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.

    Cute if you have an embroidery machine. I crochet mine.

    I cut mt spoolies from tiny batting scraps and use a hole punch to get the center hole (also can use scissors). But those are cute if you have an embroidery machine.

    I would like to see one on a standard size sewing machine instead of the FW. It's hard to picture the size of the spoolie. I love the crochet ones, but I am hopeless when it comes to crocheting. Thank you for the link!

    The ones I make fit a FW or a regular size machine. It is about 2 inches round Not really a standard size but you want it big enough to show and look pretty under the spool. It's to keep static from them metal spool pin and the metal body of the machine. You can use one on any machine that has a vertical spool pin.

    Thanks for posting this link. I bought the design right away. I didn't know about her site so I am happy to add her to my list of sources for embroidery designs. I hope to get 9 of them made before my sewing club meeting next week so I can share with friends.

    Absolutely adorable. Would make great gifts if you have an embroidery machine. Or, just to buy the actual spoolies and gift. It's a very unique gift.

    I make my spoolies of tatting. I have several tatted spoolies on my vintage machines and have given many to others. Any one I see who has a Featherweight gets a tatted spoolie from me.

    I had found some loose crocheted flowers at antique malls when I visited them or at flea markets.

    They are adorable. I've never held a crochet hook in my life but wouldn't mind learning if I could make some of those.
