The drawers in the Sewing Cottage sometimes get a little out of control.  There is string everywhere!

They get all tangled up and then when you pull one bobbin out it somehow entangles itself to the rest of the bobbins…and then…. you know the rest of the story.

So, this is where the Bobbin Tamers come in.

Bobbin Tamers
They are to keep all the strings on the bobbin in line of course ……but secretly they are little fuzzy hair ponietail holders. Shhh. don’t tell.
Here is how they work—- take your bobbin and wrap your bobbin tamer around the outside once or twice if it is a small bobbin. It will keep your strings from grabbing each other. It works even better on clear bobbins so you can see the thread color!
I found my bobbin tamers at Walmart- but i know that all a dollar carries them occassionally too.  You want the smallest ones. They will stretch with use.
Pop a bunch in a little ziploc baggie, a plastic baby food container, or a cute tin…..and label them.
They come in real handy, and are great for little presents or gifts to other sewers.
