When it comes to bobbin storage I have two solutions. If I know I’ll be sewing with the same thread colors for a while, I prepare those spools, I wind the bobbins, sometimes multiple bobbins per spool if the project is big and attach the bobbins to the spool as seen in the photo above. I’ll highlight the exact steps in the step by step description below.
Most times though I simply use a toe separator to store my bobbins, so this is my second solution. Honestly I prefer this option, to me it not only looks better but the bobbins are tightly stored so the thread never unwinds. The toe separators are cheap and if you find some with glitter as mine, they’ll add a nice dose of cuteness to your sewing room.
I keep all the treads and spools in a little cabinet I bought from Ikea. I store the cabinet right under my sewing table so they’re always easy to reach, making my life so much easier and my sewing projects a little faster. Here’s how I do the bobbin storage number one. It may seem silly but someone has to teach silliness too lol

- spools of thread
- corresponding bobbins
- elastic bands
- Pull the elastic band over the spool of thread.
- Insert the opposite end into the bobbin until the end reaches the other end of the bobbin.
- Grab this end and pull it over the spool as you did in the first step.
- A little tip: to prevent the thread from unwinding on both the spool and the bobbin I spray the ends of the thread with hair spray. Then I move the elastic so that it covers the thread end on the spool to make it even more secure.
- And that’s pretty much it!
I this is the coolest DIY bobbin storage idea and an excellent solution to keep spools and corresponding threads together!
