Floss Bobbins


I had such a nice day today. I spent the whole day with my wonderful husband.
We went out to a lovely lunch at an Italian cafe. It was so nice to spend the time just the two of us!
The weather is so beautiful outside now. I just love the chill in the air! The leaves are already starting to fall from some of the trees. I wonder if we will get enough snow this winter to build a snowman. I so love building them with my daughter.

I have seen some pretty bobbins on other blogs and wanted to try making some myself.
I have done so, and am quite pleased with the results. I have used fabric scraps and adhered the fabric onto cardboard bobbins with Steam -A- Seam and ironing.
It worked out well. After adhering the fabric to the bobbins, I then trimmed around the bobbins and then used a hole punch to punch the hole, then laced with ribbon.
So pretty!

Hoping you had a beautiful Sunday today,
Blessings to you my friends!
