Printable Floss Bobbins
How do you like to store your embroidery floss? Are all your threads well organized or could they use a bit of help? Bobbins are a classic way to keep floss tidy, and with this printable version you'll never run out!
These bobbins have a light linen texture printed on them, and they are designed to fold for stability.
Additionally, they are a little larger than standard bobbins, but they'll still fit in your favorite bobbin case. Simply turn them so they line up the other direction.
If you... don't want to make a whole case of bobbins, you can punch a hole in the top and hang them on a ring. Plus, there's room to write the color number. It's so handy for taking a project on the go!

Download and Print the Floss Bobbins
To prepare your bobbins, download the printable JPG. There are eight bobbins per page.
Print the JPG on card stock.
When printed in high resolution at 100%, it will fit on a US Letter size page and each bobbin should measure 4.25" x 1.5". It's important that the size is accurate so that they will fit in a floss box.
Cut out around each shape and fold in half on the dotted line.

Forming the Bobbins
With the bobbin still folded, snip the small solid lines. Open the bobbin and fold the sides in on the dotted lines.
Fold the bobbin closed again. You can stick the layers together with glue or doubled-sided tape, but once you wrap the floss around it, the bobbin will hold on its own.
Wrap the embroidery floss around the bobbins.
If you want to prevent the end from unwrapping, you can snip a small slit in the bottom and slide the end of the floss through the cut.
Repeat with each of your embroidery... flosses.
And to keep your floss looking pretty, organize the bobbins in rainbow order so they're ready for your next color-filled project!
