This is one way...a bobbin tray.
Here is the item...a corner guard or wall corner protector. It's clear, so the picture is kind of pointless, but still wanted to show you. Looks like a long stick.
A corner guard is usually placed on the corner of a wall to protect it from wear and tear.
This is a clear plastic version, but they come in all shapes and sizes.
This was a 4 foot length for less than $2.00
This is a picture I found online for an example of what it's actually used for.
Here's the Sew Many Ways versions of the corner guard...
#1...utility tray for front of sewing table
Can you see it? Remember it's clear, Lol. It's just under the black tape measure.
I attached it to the front of my sewing table. It's at a 90 angle, so it's like a little shelf to hold seam rippers, pencils or little sewing tools for your machine.
Perfect small shelf for the little things that I always lose while sewing.
The plastic cuts easily with utility scissors too.
The next project will be used with the "V" shaped point glued to a surface.
I hot glued the corner guard to a shelf to hold bobbins.
With the "V"shape facing up, it holds bobbins perfectly.
You could glue this little shelf next to your spools of threads.
#3...Pencil Case Bobbin Holder
These plastic pencil cases are in most office supplies section in all stores. They are usually under $1.00
You can find them in CVS, Staples Office Supply, Walmart, Target etc...
just slide out the case and measure your corner guard to fit inside.
I used a bead of hot glue on the bottom ridge...
and glued it in place inside the pencil box. I know...clear on clear. Sorry!!
I fit 3 rows of the corner guards inside the box.
Holds all your bobbins in each row.
The inner drawer just slides back in the box and keeps all the bobbins safe and sound.
Perfect to take to class or a retreat.
Have fun shopping in your local hardware store for your corner guard!!
Remember...Always think outside the box
