I don't think so. L bobbins are for rotary hooks and are flat on top and bottom. 66 class bobbins aren't as wide, and are rounded on top and bottom.

Where I work, we make them bigger. 45" X 60" is a crib size. 50" X 60" is a lap size and 60" X 72" is a throw size. The throw for a tall person could be up to 60" X 90". Think Minky -- it's 60"...

I've had pretty good luck with pressing them to the shape I want.

If you need to, cut into the design a little -- just so the printed borders don't show.

You can just turn off the upper thread sensor. It's the eye icon.
