What's a girl to do when she is organising her project boxes and runs out of those little plastic bobbin winders for her silk threads.....improvise of course!
I bought some new threads while out a couple of days ago but didn't realise that I would need more bobbins and it turned out I was very low on supplies.
It is a twenty minute drive to Spotlight where they are usually available but I really didn't want to face the traffic, suffer the carpark and wait in a life sapping queue just to buy a few plastic cards!
Insert *light bulb moment* here. Only five minutes to the nearest supermarket for a possible stand in product and no traffic lights to contend with....ok, the car park can be a nightmare there aswell.....unless.........
Oh, what a stroke of luck, I had some wooden pegs sitting around for another project to make washi tape/wooden peg fridge magnets.
Why not wind the threads around the wooden peg! I had seen this idea somewhere on Pinterest (I think) and it had stuck in my head to be used at the very right moment.
I think they will look so lovely in a bowl on the shelf too.
