    I get the cheap ones with no glitter. Love the idea of getting 300 of these little babies for a buck!

    I also use them on my thread, especially my embroidery thread. Much cheaper and more convenient than using the thread wraps.

    Aren't these great. I discovered these a while back. A lot cheaper than buying the same thing that was made just for bobbins.

    I use these all the time too. They really work well. I couldn't find them at my Dollar Stores but did find them at my WalMart

    They have these at our LQS. Can you believe that they get .10 a piece for these little buggers? I got them at Walmart for really cheap.

    Wow great idea. I use them to put around the spools of thread to keep them from unwinding. Never thought about the bobbins. They are so cheap. I got a pak at the dollar store then did all mine and my friends too with some left over.

    I used the ponytail holders also. then someone I think on here posted an idea about using clear plastic tubing. it's 3/8"-1/2" dia. tubing. you slice it into 1/4" slices then cut a slit through it up one side. so you have a ring that is split. the split slips over the bobbin and closes around the bobbin. you can still see exactly what color thread is in there because it is clear tubing. I bought 1 foot of tubing for 60 cents. makes approx. 48 holders. It's a pretty neat idea and they aren't as bulky. Mary

    Thanks for showing a picture, I was thinking the tiny rubber bans and saying those want work. But I can see these will. Thanks

    They are awesome. I have been using them for years. Wouldn't use anything else. Cheap too.

    Plastic tubing sounds like a good idea also. Where do you get the tubing?

    They are so easy to slip on and off.No cutting or measuring.I did try the tubing,but I prefer the hair ties.I like the ready to use method.

    I like the tubing better. It makes it easier to see the color through it. Also , you can still store them in your machine accessory tray when you are taking machine to classes. With the pony tail bands they don't fit in tray, at least mine doesn't. I guess that is why there is so many different tips, huh??

    I am so excited to read this. I keep my bobbins in the plastic case they come in BUT the ends of the threads are always hanging loose. I store them in a storage shelf of my machine cabinet and every once in a while, I have a long bobbin thread hanging loose that gets wrapped around my foot and before I know it, i've drug 10 yards of thread throughout my house. This is the perfect remedy. Thanks.
