Genius bobbin solution

My bobbins are always a big tangled mess of thread that make me grumpy.  No more tangles for me thanks to Sew Many Ways.  She just attached magnets to the side of  a planter and Voila-instant bobbin holder.

I already have a ton of stuff on my desk, so I decided to adhere the magnets to the side of the desk.  They are out of my way, easy to grab, and best of all-tangle free.  


I love when a find a cheap and easy solution!  

If you are one of those people w/ computerized machines or your machine uses plastic bobbins, here's another idea I saw on Pinterest 
Genius I tell you. bobbins in toe seperators.

  11. I take little girl soft ponytail holders and wrap them around the bobbin to keep the thread from unwinding.
