new use for old bobbins

I store the bulk of my sewing notions in a set of plastic drawers. Unfortunately, over the years, a few of the finger pulls have broken off but as from today, I have new handles – the plastic bobbins from my old sewing machine!  I smeared a blob of glue on the drawer front with a hot glue gun and then pressed a bobbin onto the glue. I admit that they don’t have a lot going for them in the good looks department but they sure do the trick!I don’t know why I didn’t think of this solution years ago!

    Like – WOW. Really up there with the cool ideas girl. I have all my bobbins/ threads in an old fish bowl. You can imagine the chaos as one rummages in there. Miles of thread all twisted around!

I like it when people write to me
