Materials
- cardboard (about as thick as a tissue box)
- scissors
- 1 skein of embroidery floss (to wrap around the bobbin)
STEP ONE
cut the cardboard into 1 3/4 by 2 1/2 inches.
STEP TWO
Cut the middle of the sides out as shown in the picture. This helps the string to stay on the bobbin. Make the squares as even as possible.
STEP THREE
fold the top of the bobbin down and cut out a small triangle. Put the top back up again like it was before.
STEP FOUR
Make two even slits at the bottom of the bobbin.
STEP FIVE
Take the embroidery floss and put enough through the hole so that you can make a double knot. Then wrap the string around the bobbin. when the string is almost done, put the remaining piece through the two slits. Note: the remaining string should be about an inch so you can put it through the slit without it being too small or too long.
