Hugo's Tape

Now it comes in 1/2" perfect size for bobbins. I used these on my big embroidery thread spools. There are tons of uses for this tape.

If you have Amazon prime only $9.29 and get it in two days. Would cost me $14 and I'm in Bmore with Allstitch. Which is a great company by the way but if you can get stuff cheaper. They do have great prices on Maderia.

I just use regular tape, but take off some of the stickiness by sticking it to my jeans first.

Got the wider version long ago and don't use it that much.

If you want to control the bobbin thread tails, wrap them tight against the inner side of the top or bottom of the bobbin spool.

I like the clear tubing 1/2OD that you get at hardware stores. It is the perfect solution for me.

Years ago I made bobbin clips out of clear flexible vinyl tubing too.

Here is a picture tutorial,in case someone else is interested.My bobbin cases look nice and tidy like the blogger's.

Oh my goodness! My bobbin case looks like the before picture! I will have to go to the hardware store to get the plastic tubing. I did read that you can use little soft hair elastics--looks/feels more like a knit ring than elastic. Thought it was a Goody hair product but can't find link.

Thanks so much for sharing your ideas!
