Bobbin Holder

Wondering what to do with all those jumbled up, loose bobbins?

How about creating a simple, sleek organizer from a hanger.


  • Metal hanger
  • Pliers with wire cutter (you can see a small peek of what they look like here)
  • Bobbins

Cut a 10 inch piece of metal off the bottom portion of a metal hanger using the wire cutter.  Curl one end in a spiral using the pliers.

Flatten the spiral (going from picture 4 to 5). Bend the wire at a 90 degree angle from the spiral using the pliers. Slide your bobbins onto your new organizer.

The Real Deal: It's free!

  1. Awesome! I have been wondering is I should cave and buy one of those plastic bobbin holders. But no more. I have some wire hangers I can use for this project. Perfect.

  2. Oh my goodness, that is a great idea.  thank you.

  3. Free is good  – and this is a really cute organizer!

  4. just amazing *(*

  5. Brilliant!!!  I linked to your tutorial on Craft Gossip Sewing:

  6. I have a round rubber bobbin holder…But I love this idea so much more!

  7. Found you on Craft Gossip and just had to come and look at what you've done.  What a kewl idea!  And this is definitely on my to-do list this up-coming weekend.

  8. Thank goodness I stumbled across this post – having bobbins all over my sewing kit has been driving me crazy! Thanks so much for the tip!

  9. I use those foam pedicure toe seperators. They keep my bobbins from unwinding, and it makes it easy for me to keep track of what bobbins will fit in which machine. :)
