Today is my turn in the Bob-A-Long blog hop hosted by Angie at GnomeAngel. Angie is a very talented quilter, baker, blogger and the fearless leader of the Fussy Cutting FB Club. I designed this little box and bag to hold bobbins of my favourite Aurifil threads for my on the go projects, such as appliqué and EPP.
- While the box pattern can include the bolts for holding the thread, I made another with no holes as a wonder clip bag.
- For the box insert I used the white cardboard from a Layer Cake. Template Plastic works well too. Whatever you use, ensure you can punch a hole through it and it can keep its shape when supporting the bolts and bobbins.
- If you don't have 1" twill, try making your own 1" wide bands. Peta will be including this technique in her tutorial during the hop.
- Make more than one box to fill with different project notions and threads to insert into a single bag.
The pattern can be made in under 2 hours. Finishing at 4" x 2 1/4" x 4" it makes a great gift for your stitching friends and a nice swap project. The pattern can be purchased here.
