here hold this spool

I made this yesterday out of a ten cent coat hanger, and I am delighted with it, I’m going to make a couple more for hand sewing. (for the large spools you need about 8″ springy wire) The 1890 long hair pin version is much smaller and would be ideal for the tiny wooden spools, especially if you are pinning it to your chest area for easy access.

It reminds of of the chatelaine bobinettes.
