I wanted to save time while I was making my latest mini-wardrobe. Without actually buying 3 or 4 cones of thread to match each color of blue I would need for the project, I bought 3 cones of my most common color. Then, when I needed to stitch the seam with a different color thread, I just switched out my needle threads, leaving my loopers royal blue. I know it saved time and money.

(In the pic, you can ignore the white cone. I was only using 3 threads at the time.)

Great tip- unless the fabric is really light and I have dark thread in the loopers, I usually do the same thing. As long as it isn't a stark contrast, it still looks nice from the inside.
